To help you make the shift from conformity to creativity and innovation by learning to ask better questions, and the right questions, today’s guest Doug Adamson is the perfect antidote.
Doug has spent his entire life asking the right questions as a key ingredient for his initial and ongoing success.
As an inquisitive boy from good
old Adelaide, after completing his training as an electronic
engineer in the early 1980s, Doug’s first proper business in the UK
involved producing radio shows and interviewing rock stars such as the Rolling
Stones, Paul McCartney, Talking Heads, Sting, Pink Floyd, Mark Knofler and many more
– what a great way to develop your
by sitting face to face with the world’s greatest rock legends – and we have some fun digging into his experience with many of my music heroes.
And his constant questioning and pursuit of improvement and innovation also led him to become a world record holder in an obscure branch of cycling.
Since then, Doug has gone on to entrepreneurially build a number of companies in the UK, Europe, South East Asia and Australia - mostly commercialising new ideas.
He’s also founded a business in organics, acquired a boutique tourism business, and made several angel investments.
Along his evolving progression, he’s built expertise in investment management and capital raising via his experience with early stage venture capital funds.
Doug now loves filling his days working with innovative companies. Doug is motivated by questioning, testing and helping businesses bring new products to the market.
