With 18 years as a trial attorney building a multi-million dollar enterprise and 10 years as the CEO of a leading personal development and business training company, Adam has much to share about resilience, culture and change.

In his latest bestselling book, Change Proof, Adam shows how those principles of resilience are equally relevant today for any business that wants to move beyond managing change to actively embracing it and using times of uncertainty, crisis, and chaos to create opportunities and stimulate individual and team growth.

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.
