'Adam arrived at Hill & Knowlton when I was deputy CEO there and he had so much confidence that I think I probably employed him purely to see if he could live up to his own hype. That faith was rewarded.
'His desire to succeed was impressive, but what made him stand out was an ability to roll up his sleeves and work with the media - an attribute sadly lacking in the DNA of so many PR executives today. All this, combined with a very straightforward manner with clients, made Adam a strong consultant beyond his years.
'Sadly he has now moved to work at Cricket Australia which, during the current Ashes series, is causing many unwanted emails.'
Adam Vincenzini is now events and marketing officer at Cricket Australia.
