Adelina Chalmers - The Geek Whisperer

"...and what you can do about it" is key to my work.

Geeks and non-geeks often clash not because they disagree, but because they speak very different languages. If they don’t figure each other out, they end up at cross-purposes.

I decode misunderstandings between engineers and commercial staff, then teach practical techniques to prevent them. The method has worked for everyone from CEOs to software developers and L&D professionals. I love to translate concepts into practical, in-the-moment techniques you can use to change the outcome of a meeting.

I always decoded abstract concepts into practical "how to's" when:

  • I was on the East of England representative on the steering group which advised Equality Minister (Teresa May) on equality issues from the region.
  • I advised the EHRC (Equality and Human Rights Commission) on the practical guidance to the Equality Act 2010
  • I help Cambridge University STEM post-docs shape their abstract research into a business pitch for investment.
