What our clients are saying

“Brad has a special ability to make you feel welcome, safe and listened to. That natural ability combined with his empathy, candour, and experience make him an effective executive coach. He provided me with guidance and insights about my leadership during our years of hypergrowth and later helped me find my purpose. I’m always, always happy to recommend him.”

Noel Pullen

Senior Director, Technology, HootSuite

“Mark and Adaptive Talent were engaged to help us with some of our most challenging searches during a time of rapid growth. Recruiting for key sales leadership roles in the United States and a sole contributor role in Vancouver, he met with key stakeholders to first understand the individual, team and business objectives motivating the search.

With an approach that is both collaborative and flexible, he kept us informed of relevant market information and was always happy to provide his perspective and advice on all things recruitment. Mark is a bright mind, a great communicator and an overall pleasure to be around. Should the opportunity present itself, I would be happy to work with Mark again!”

Megan Nichol

Director, People & Culture, BroadbandTV

“Brad is an outstanding business partner. He played an important consultative role helping Gracenote define corporate values and a framework to sustain our Bay Area tech culture. He subsequently provided Executive Coaching for several C-Suite leaders and was always able to extract insight to define a clear path forward. The feedback was very positive. I recommend him highly.”

Vice President, Global Content Operations, Gracenote

​”Mark was recommended to me by a former colleague who had success partnering with him. Mark has engaged with our team on some of our critical searches in Sales, Professional Services, and People and Culture, and he has proven to be a collaborative partner who seeks to understand our business goals and work together to accomplish results. He is a value-add partner in the process, identifying the path to the best outcomes. The end result has been high-quality candidates and great additions to the team that contribute meaningfully to our success.”
