Former CEO, NSW Land Registry Services
Adam is the principal of Great Change Consulting and the author of "Great Change – the way to get big strategy done."
"One must bear in mind that there is nothing more difficult to administer, dubious of success, nor dangerous to execute than to introduce a new way of doing things. For he who does has enemies of all those who profit from the existing way of doing things, and only lukewarm allies in all who may profit from the new"
~ Machiavelli, 1532
