Sam Jukes Adams

First Elected/ Appointed: 2017

Profession: TV production consultant and executive coach

About: KAS has a very special spirit, very like my own progressive school experience, which I found to be very formative and rewarding.  So, it’s a privilege to be on Council and work with the school to help uphold its ethos and develop its future. I am a parent to two children in KAS, one in Lower and one in Upper School, and joined Council two years ago. Having been a Governor at my son’s previous school, I was keen to join Council and do it all again in a new setting. I started my tenure on Council supporting Safeguarding, and now I’m working with the school on their development plans.  Outside of marriage, parenthood and Council my professional work is in Executive Coaching in Leadership, informed by the Tavistock systems psychodynamic position. I spent twenty odd years as a Head of Production in Television, prior to coaching, working in the UK and internationally, spanning documentary through to High End Drama. I now lecture at MetFilm on their Producing MA, deliver training on the HETV Leadership programme, and mentor for Women in Film and TV.
