Adam Lomas spent 35 years working for Shell International as a Sub-Surface Analyst, Petroleum Engineering Team Leader and Technical Director around the world.
He has worked in five continents – particularly in Africa (Nigeria), the Far East (Brunei, Malaysia & Indonesia), in America (Houston), Europe (Netherlands, Cyprus) and more than 20 years in the Middle East (Qatar, Oman).
His last 10 years in Shell International were spent as the Vice President responsible for Technical Training & Leadership Development. After retiring from Shell in 2009, Adam has worked for the Qatar Foundation and Qatar Financial Authority teaching Leadership to high potential Qataris.
Adam now works with governments and executives of companies across the Middle East and the Levant and is specifically focused on helping to determine strategy and facilitate change in oil and gas. His work in learning and development makes him especially interested in determining the most appropriate development programs for nationals and leadership in general.
His interest in developing leaders has also taken him into family businesses in the Gulf region where he believes in sharing his experience in larger companies for the benefit of those who otherwise might not have access.
