Everyone really enjoyed Adam’s engaging keynote! The energy he imbibed lasted well into the event, nearly doubling the engagement over past meetings! Our group is historically very quiet and somewhat introverted; I was impressed with how much participation he inspired.
We just experienced Adam Markel’s amazing resilience keynote for our audience across North America. These are dynamic times full of uncertainty and resilience is critical to everyone. Adam hit the mark! He really is helping us to be more resilient and to prepare ourselves physically, spiritually and mentally for the uncertainty. I keep hearing from members across the continent about how much his message resonated with them. We’re just so happy to have Adam and can’t wait to engage with him again.
It was an instant alignment during our initial conversations with Adam and his team. Adam did more than ‘speak’ he ‘immersed’ with our team and our Customers for 3 days. By the end of the event, we were armed and ready for anything and everything the future of our industry could throw at us. We couldn’t have accomplished our goals for the event without Adam’s engagement, insight, leadership and authenticity. Thank you for ‘game-changing’ with and for us my friend.
We made the right call in having Adam as our keynote!! He was great! The team loved him and his message resonated very well. The assessment that he had us do was also very insightful, both on an individual and group level. Adam was personable both on and off stage, which allowed him to really connect with the executive team.
From my first conversation with Adam I knew we were going to have an incredible event today. There was some chemistry on the phone and I have to say today absolutely held up to the high expectations I had for what we were going to do. I care about the people in this room and they need to hear this message and Adam was the right person (and this was the right vehicle) to get that to our folks. Thank you so much - we appreciate you being a part of our team.
Adam was very well received and his messaging was right on target. He and his team were a dream to work with – professional, organized, and committed to our event’s success. Adam took the time to know our audience and tailor his presentation to address their needs. Our conference attendees left the room inspired and with a tangible next step to increase their resilience.”

I was impressed by Adam’s matter-of-fact delivery and the helpful tools he provided to improve personal resilience.

That was awesome, please extend our gratitude to Adam! He killed it!
Thank you immensely for your inspiring message at this year’s sales kickoff. Not only was it timely, it was well received by the group. I heard guys saying “I got your back” throughout the rest of the event. I look forward to where our team takes the message.

Thank you so much. Adam was great and our clients kept talking about his message – so it really resonated!
I just attended the session you lead with JCHRMA and I have to say thank you so much! I have been struggling over the past few months with all of the changes with our organization, COVID, family, etc and your lessons had a wonderful impact on me. We hear the word Resilience all the time, but I didn’t know how to build on that. This session provided me with the tools to do just that. I am excited to help myself be stronger and then help my team be stronger in return.
In today’s ever-changing landscape of uncertainty and stress, employees are struggling to find the inner energy and support needed to face each workday. Even for the most resilient team members, positivity may feel just out of reach these days. In his highly interactive and engaging mental health speech, Adam offers real-life, substantial strategies to combat feelings of exhaustion and elevate mental resilience, capacity and well-being.
The Key to Mental Resilience: Build Your Resilience Bank Account
It’s a natural phenomenon of human nature to replay every mistake you ever made, especially during the dark hours of early morning when sleep is needed the most. But this internal ‘doom scrolling’ steadily erodes mental resilience. Continuously revisiting doubt, fear and worry supports a vision of what might go wrong in the future, instead of what could go right.
Adam helps organizations build a surplus of resilience — rather than ‘spending’ all of your energy on negative reactions to life’s challenges, make ‘deposits’ of resilience into your mental account each day of the positive experiences so you can build a reserve to draw from when needed. Focusing on what you can control (your response) when faced with obstacles helps cultivate resilience and mental strength and allows you to bounce forward. Adam teaches you how to restore your composure and well-being for a more positive and balanced life.
Resilience Rituals: Key to Thriving Through Chaos
Adam delivers an impactful and powerful mental health speech that offers self-care rituals to re-energize mind, body and soul. Building resilience, which Adam defines as the ability to thrive — mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally, regardless of what is happening in your environment — enables you to bounce forward through challenges.
Embracing resilience culture is key to living a happy and healthy life. Incorporating resilience into your daily ritual may not stop obstacles from impeding your success, but it will prepare you to effortlessly navigate them and emerge on the other side unscathed.
The Art of Reframe: What It Means to Pivot
Adam transformed what could have been a mid-life crisis into a mid-life calling when he left his thriving multi-million-dollar law firm to become CEO of one of the most renowned business and personal growth training companies around the globe.
His researched and innovative approach to building resilience teaches you how to reframe your mindset and view the present as the ideal time to explore creative solutions. Adam encourages you to ignore the uncertainty of what lies ahead, question what you think you know and seek novel approaches in every situation. His personal stories of resilience inspire audiences to consider what can be done in this very moment to create positive ripples in the future.
Adam embodies the notion that the greatest successes are often built out of the most demanding struggles. After leaving behind a successful, but overwhelming and impossibly stressful law career, he discovered a more meaningful mission. Tapping into his innate ability for inspiring others, Adam began helping tens of thousands of individuals around the globe improve their mental health through proven resilience strategies.
By drawing from his own experiences, Adam supports others in incredibly stressful careers to elevate their mental health and now runs one of the largest personal growth training companies in the world. Using wisdom, humor and profoundly personal insights, Adam helps individuals break through debilitating struggles to achieve personal and professional success. His deep belief in the importance of building resilience and improving mental health is the foundation of everything he does and he never gives up until his goals are accomplished, no matter how large or small.
Adam hopes to inspire individuals everywhere to fearlessly embrace change while embarking on a journey of self-discovery and mental resilience. His mental health keynote speaker topics help leaders create an organizational culture that transcends being “just a place to work” and cultivates an environment that employees love to be part of.
A mental health keynote speaker guides individuals and organizations how to foster an adaptable and resilient culture that supports mental health at work and improves employee performance.

The right mental resilience speaker will leave your team feeling motivated and ready to tackle whatever comes their way.
While the total cost may vary based on factors such as experience, career and the level of personalization requested, engaging a mental health speaker for your workplace delivers an incredible return on your investment.
