      Lucy Adams is one of Europe’s best known HR executives. She led HR and internal communications at the BBC and now offers a number of challenges, new models and fresh insights to support business leaders. Since leaving the BBC, Lucy has been working with major organisations to help them re-think their approach to leading change, employee engagement, HR and internal communications.

      When Adams was appointed Director of the BBC’s HR operation, she was faced with a top-heavy and often staid workforce. By strategically reducing the BBC’s management ranks by 30%, she saved the organization more than £25m per year. Over five years, Adams served four Directors General while overseeing a corporation-wide move and managing inherited scandals. In the face of those challenges, she modernized HR policy for the BBC’s more than 20,000 employees. 

      Lucy then founded Disruptive HR to bring her innovative spirit and deep expertise to a global audience. She leads a team that helps HR officials and C-suite executives rethink the way they attract, retain, and engage talent. Disruptive HR has consulted with HSBC, Siemens, Accenture, and many other leading corporations. Adams and her team reach thousands of members each month through her online training network, the Disruptive HR Club.

      She has distilled her wisdom in two bestselling books. HR: Disrupted and The HR Change Toolkit form a complete guide to rethinking business leadership and implementing constructive change.
