Director of Engagement, World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts

Adam is the director of engagement for the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, where he is responsible for fundraising, advocacy and communications to support 150 countries to help 10 million girls worldwide. He has over 15 years of experience in the sector, and most recently grew a corporate, major donor and trust team at Plan UK to increase from £5m to £10m.
