Let’s face it, life is getting faster and faster and shows no signs of slowing down. Business is more competitive now than any other time in history. Companies and individuals now more than ever need to out create, out innovate and out market their competition. The result of this is a workforce that is having serious issues around sustaining high performance. 83 percent of employees are indifferent to or hate their job, 65 percent or all strategy is never implemented and approximately 73 percent of all change efforts fail.

Adam was great at our offsite. It was my second time in his audience and I was entertained as good as the "first time. Adam moulds interesting research results and statistics into a humorous ... keep reading, informative and engaging presentation. His message clearly showed us how to maximize our performance each day. Personally he got me to sit up and question my understanding of things, especially things about our rituals and habits. I strongly recommend Adam’s presentation to others. Commonwealth Bank
We had the largest response from our customers to this seminar, with over 67 acceptances. The feedback was exceptionally positive and the presentation provided a fantastic mix of information and interaction. Just watching the room people were nodding approval and understanding, you clearly hit the mark! Thank you for you professional and energetic and positive approach. I appreciate that it’s not easy to ‘rouse’ an audience at 8am in the morning. Thank you once again. Would you please come back to us another time?
Adam’s speech was high energy, entertaining and thought provoking. The audience responded well to the key points of his speech and my managers and team leaders have been motivated to use the techniques that Adam presented. They now have a clear understanding of how they can better prepare and motivate themselves, and their teams, during times of high pressure and the accompanying stress that results. Adam has been consulting to me on a personal level for a number of months and has enabled me to be much more e!ective as a manager and to maintain high personal performance levels. I would strongly recommend Adam as a speaker at any presentation focusing on the key interdependencies of energy, health and stress management in raising the effectiveness and performance of staff and management.
Thank you Adam, for an amazing and most enjoyable presentation. You certainly are an excellent presenter and communicator. Your stories and personal experiences not only encouraged all the attendees to relax, enjoy and be challenged, but also set you apart from other presenters. I am very appreciative that I have taken away tools to implement in my life and working habits.
Both my clients and I found your talk to be informative, amusing, anecdotal and extremely well delivered. It is obvious from your performance that you were well prepared, practiced and familiar with both your topic and with speaking in public to groups. As our guys were _ of the way through lunch when you commenced your talk it was a credit to you to be able to capture their attention and keep their interest throughout. It is without hesitation that we would recommend you to other organisations looking for someone to inform, excite or rev up their teams, or represent them in front of clients and customers.
