Adam grew up in London, gaining valuable skills working on a market stall with his father - a retired fireman. Commanding the crowd and connecting with new people, Adam gained insight into tricks, deceptions and loopholes prevalent in that scene.

Sales became less legitimate over time, culminating in Adam's father's imprisonment in 2006 for building the U.K.'s largest counterfeit DVD operation in history. This impact was a defining moment in Adam's development and a call to transform these skills for positive purposes.

In poetic fashion, Adam began his career as a magician and hypnotherapist, incorporating talents nurtured through a decade of street-smarts.

A gifted speaker, Adam's work unveils the magic we all possess - our ability to transform our story and turn our setbacks into jet packs.

Inspiring presenter who captivates the audience from the onset

Community Enterprise Queensland (CEQ)

A phenomenal talent and a pleasure to deal with during and pre-event. Raised the energy took time to mingle with the delegates and continued to wow the audience on and off the stage. I didn't prepare enough to be awestruck as I and the rest of the conference ended up being.
