Adam
Spencer

Laugh out loud comedy and mathematical fun.

Profile

For over two decades, Adam Spencer has been one of Australia’s best and foremost event hosts, keynote speakers and facilitators. His attention to detail and ability to improvise are the hallmarks for which he has been regularly invited back to many events.

Adam has interviewed, among others, bestselling authors, astronauts and CEOs of some of the world’s largest companies; winners of Nobel Prizes, Academy Awards and AFL Grand Finals. He has shared the stage with every Australian Prime Minister since Whitlam but he is equally adept at bringing to life the everyday stories of ordinary people who deserve acknowledgement for their achievements.

Adam’s greatest strength is his versatility; there is virtually no topic he doesn’t enjoy getting his head around and presenting. That said, given his background in mathematics, Adam is particularly strong at presenting on science, technology, the digital world, medicine and health.

Adam’s 2013 TED Talk on massive prime numbers (check out the video below!) has received over 2 million views and was voted in as one of the 10 best ever TED talks on Mathematics. And after he interviewed the greatest chess player of all time, Garry Kasparov, they played a match. The result of that momentous event … is not important!

Adam engaged the audience from the moment he walked on stage. His combination of wit and intelligence held the attention of the audience for the entire session. His passion for mathematics was infectious. Adam showed great spirit and commitment by being prepared to talk with individuals after his presentation. NSW Primary Principals' Association

Fantastic guy. Adam Spencer read the audience and targeted his speech accordingly. Very well received.

Wollongong UniCentre

Captured all 800 attendees attention and held them for the full 40 minutes. Intelligent and hilarious at the same time.

Australian Library and Information Association

Adam was fantastic - our people loved his speech

Australian Bureau of Statistics

Adam was very pleasant to deal with, he was punctual and enthusiastic and drew quite a good crowd. His performance was different to what I have seen him do before and related to our overall conference themes. He also took the time before he spoke to meet and confer with concurrent session presenters in the same conference theme which was above and beyond our expectations.

Planning Institute Australia

Exceptional speaker! Entertaining and informative.

Connell Wagner

Adam's professionalism and thoroughness in preparing for, and on the day of, our event was fantastic! He really made an effort to understand the objective of our event and assisted greatly in delivering key outcomes. Adam was an absolute pleasure to work with!

Australian Sports Commission

Adam was excellent as MC and as a final speaker. He kept the program moving along and was spot on with his comments.
