Paul Adams

National Director, England

Paul was appointed as National Director England in March 2022, having previously held several CEO roles within the Charity sector. Here he demonstrated a talent for growing organisations, including within the membership context.

He has worked extensively around the world, including in both East and West Africa and so brings a wealth of cultural understanding to the role.  Prior to this, Paul served for 17 years within the military including front line service in several conflict zones. Latterly, he used his experience to specialise in leadership training for Officers, completing a postgraduate teaching qualification from Cardiff University. He is passionate about promoting the importance of transparency, simplicity, and common sense in organisational leadership.

Away from work Paul is a keen horseman and has regularly represented Great Britain at International Level on the World Cup circuit. He and his family have recently returned to UK after over 15 years living in overseas.
