Adam Markel Delivers Impact & Wow! Your audience will learn, grow, feel and take it all back with them. Why? Because of Adam’s dynamic delivery AND because he tailors all of his talks to the needs and goals of his clients so the messages will be relevant and resonate.

First, Adam spends time with his clients learning about the audience demographics, their pain points and challenges, the event goals and the desired attendee outcomes. He then draws upon his research, experience and materials to create a keynote that is calibrated for that specific audience and that will achieve the intended results and objectives.
