Tim Moore

“Adelina helped me secure significant development budget for a breakthrough product range from a highly commercial focused board. I had previously tried over a number of months to get the innovation approved, but only when I changed the approach to Adelina's recommendation, I was able to shift the mind-set of the board and get them to buy into the vision and support the development.”

Tim Moore, former CTO at Shark Ninja and GHD

"Adelina and her team have been a pleasure to work with throughout this significant point of change and growth across our business. I'd recommend for anyone who is in a technical leadership role to engage with Adelina and follow her content. Equally for non technical leaders, if you're looking for some support in identifying what good technical leadership should look like, then I'd recommend speaking with Adelina and her team."

Jade Cohen, CO-Founder and CPO, Qualis Flow

“As a relatively new VPE I've found it challenging to make the IC (individual contributor) transition at times and to feel confident that I'm adding value. However, Adelina's help, guidance and insight have been invaluable and all achieved within one week! I feel invigorated again with the role and looking forward to moving forward with the plans set out.”
Rich Reeves, VP Engineering, Netwealth

"Adelina and her team have been fantastic support as we grow from start-up to scale-up. Her insights helped us better understand the talents and gaps in our engineering leadership and broader Engineering team. It also helped us identify a clear strategy to move forward. Adelina's straight talking approach and bubbly enthusiasm for all things 'tech translation' makes her a joy to work with. I would highly recommend her to any non-technical founder looking to better support their engineering team and identify the skills and capabilities required from their technical leadership."
Brittany Harris, CEO and Co-Founder, Qualis Flow

"I was initially very sceptical on how she could help, but Adelina  cut through the bullshit and got down the essence of the issues and helped me understand how to improve. Wish I’d worked with you 20 years ago. " 

Dan Cowell, NED, former COO Horizon Discovery

"Adelina helped me accelerate my transition from an engineering mindset to a CTO mindset. She also helped me reduce my impostor syndrome from 9 to zero. Adelina helped me build technology strategy for our business. She is not just a mentor; she's a "geek whisperer" who has helped countless CTOs and CxOs, including myself."

Chris Dinsmore, CTO, ProWriting Aid

"We've now made more progress in 2 months than we had made in the previous 6 months. Adelina helped me resolve long-running alignment challenges between our sales, product, and engineering teams. She has an excellent communication framework for enabling you to see problems from new angles and approach solutions in a pragmatic way."

Richard Martin, CEO, The Thinking Machine

"We saved 6 months of delays in change roll-out costing the company and c£15m in staff time and resources. Prevented the loss of 11 key engineers."

"We were able to bring the cost of engineering during releases from 100 to 20 engineering days. The engineering cost went down from $130,000 to $26,000. The release process time was halved, from one month to 10 working days, or one sprint."
