Adele Blair

Founder and Managing Director of The Concierge Collective, Adele’s business was created in acknowledgement of the growing complaint of people becoming more and more time poor and in doing so, unable to find sufficient time to enjoy other aspects of their lives.  The Concierge Collective enables time poor clients to simply regain time to live.  They specialise in managing the space between our client’s personal to do list, identifying and selecting vendors through to task execution and completion.

Filled with a passion for organising and an entrepreneurial spirit for making a positive difference to the lives of others, Adele’s business started out as a small home-based business and over the past 10 years has grown to become a recognised and well-regarded concierge service directly employing a team of 4 and engaging a network of associate vendors ranging from Chandelier Cleaners to New York Yankee Tickets.

The market appeal of The Concierge Collective has grown in popularity due to her desire to make their services relevant and appealing to their target market by establishing herself and her business as both an expert and authority on all things personal concierge.  Adele’s passion for making a difference led her to author her first published book titled “HOME” forging national television exposure for The Concierge Collective through her association with Sky News, Channel Ten and in particular the Studio 10 program which also complemented her role as regular feature columnist with Fairfax media. Having created this platform of awareness, The Concierge Collective is now working with corporate Australia, with many businesses including their service as part of their Attraction, Retention, Productivity and Wellness targets.

Adele is a Finalist in the Telstra Business Women Awards, Business Owner category in 2011. Adele is a Certified Concierge Specialist (CCS), an Accredited Expert Professional Organiser and an Accredited Member of the National Concierge Association of the USA.

In May 2011, Adele co-founded the Institute of Concierge and Lifestyle Managers (iCALM). This organisation was created to support the growing needs of the industry in Australia and New Zealand.

In 2014, iCALM received accreditation for the world’s first Diploma of Personal Concierge Service.

In 2015 Adele published her first book “HOME – A practical user guide to home and life organising” with New Holland Publishing.  She has also contributed to Rebecca Sparrow’s “Ask Me Anything” and Dr John Barletta’s “The Home Therapist”.
