Adam Wellings Consulting - rural economic development specialists

"I find him an intelligent and gifted communicator and incredibly easy to work with.  He understands rural communities and the pressures facing the food and farming industry extremely well and has a range of skills that can augment many planned developments" - Professor Gareth Rees

"Adam came in and he was like a whirlwind - we didn't have a succession plan in place; Adam helped us realise this was a big stumbling block and consequently our focus changed.  He has been a very good facilitator, it has been an excellent experience and is great value for money; I'd definitely recommend it" - Becky Heaton Cooper, Heaton Cooper Studio

"His strong communication skills both verbal and written ensured that all issues were addressed by the appropriate people at the appropriate point in the project.  One of Adam's particular skills is his ability to encourage people at all levels to open up and discuss issues in a forthright and productive manner" - Alison Watts, Partner, Armstrong Watson
