Adam Markel guides and empowers high achievers to navigate change, transform cultures and drive growth. Adam is an international speaker, author, entrepreneur, and sought after business mentor and strategist. Adam is also a change management expert and a specialist in helping individuals and companies magnify their message through high-impact experiential speaking, training, and facilitating.

Today, constant and never-ending innovation in the face of change is the key to creating sustainable success. Innovation, simply put, is the transformation or reinvention of something in a progressive, forward-moving direction. Therefore, our ability to reinvent—or pivot—is critical to lasting and meaningful change and success. Imagine the possibility to be better equipped to not just navigate, but utilize change to create new opportunities and achieve maximum performance in your business and life.

No one knows more about pivoting, reinvention/innovation, and lasting personal, professional and business growth than Adam. His latest best-selling book is entitled, PIVOT: The Art & Science of Reinventing Your Career and Life. Adam was most recently CEO of New Peaks, North America 's largest human potential company, and now leads More Love Media, a company dedicated to empowering individuals and businesses to re-imagine, refocus, and capitalize on change in order to thrive in a world where constant disruption is the "new normal”.

Since 2008, Adam has trained and led programs around the globe, including Australia, Asia, Europe, Canada, and the United States, in the areas of business and entrepreneurship, resilience, leadership, transformation, relationships, and speaker mastery.

Some of the topics covered in Adam’s programs include:

  • The Art & Science Of Reinvention AKA The PIVOT
  • Stop Closing Sales & Start Opening Relationships: Essential Keys For Sales Growth
  • Creating A Culture Of Innovation To Drive Business Transformation
  • Building High-Performance Capacity: Rituals & Resilience

Adam’s powerful and practical talks offer a unique bridge between self-development and business mastery, crafted
to inspire, empower, and guide people to achieve a greater impact through a higher level of awareness, authenticity
and action. He’s been a keynote speaker for groups and conferences, including Jack-In-The-Box, Harvard University,
Infusionsoft, American Gemologists Association, Selling 3.0, the Northeast Business Group on Health, and the
Success For All Foundation. He’s shared the stage with the likes of Tony Robbins, Michael J. Fox, Stedman Graham,
and Robert Kiyosaki and was honored to become a member of the prestigious Transformational Leadership Council.

Adam’s extensive experience in global stages translates into a powerful experience for any audience. He is known as one of the most charismatic speakers you'll ever see. His talks are interactive, engaging, high energy, and inspirational. Adam shares skills, tools, strategies, and practices that can be used outside the event setting to achieve sustainable results. Adam employs “accelerated” learning techniques to ensure that the substance of what is being taught is learned faster and participants retain more of what they learn.

As The Wall Street Journal and USA Today best-selling author of the book, PIVOT: The Art & Science of Reinventing Your Career and Life, Adam is a recognized expert in the integration of business and personal development. He’s been interviewed by many news and media outlets, including Fox News, Entrepreneur, Inc., American Express, Forbes, Newsday, The New York Post, The Observer, and The Wall Street Journal.

Prior to co-founding More Love Media, Adam was the CEO of the largest human potential company in North America, continuing his work of transforming so many the lives as a trainer and master program and curriculum developer. Before that, Adam founded a multi-million dollar law firm specializing in finance, commercial and employment litigation. Over the course of his 20-year practice, Adam represented over 1,000 matters with hundreds of clients, including Citibank, Wachovia, and HSBC. Adam has also built and invested in a variety of businesses, from restaurants to real estate. Adam holds a BS in English and began his career as a public-school teacher. Adam has tremendous and diverse experience in business, leadership, mentoring, and facilitation of experiential programs for large and small groups—and knows what it takes to thrive as an entrepreneur, business owner, and corporate
leader.

Adam has reinvented what it means to be a heart-centered and authentic leader. He's admired for his refreshing
and inspiring impact on entrepreneurs, creative thinkers, and leaders worldwide.

PIVOT! TURN CHANGE & DISRUPTION INTO A CULTURE OF INNOVATION & AGILITY 

Disruption is something we have come to expect more and more. If your organization is not prepared to manage and make the most of change, your days are probably numbered. In fact,  88% of the Fortune 500 companies from 1955 are no longer in business. Our ability to reinvent and innovate - what Adam refers to as “pivotability” – is critical to business longevity. Without a  pivot-ready culture, businesses run the risk of mediocrity creeping in, threatening an organization’s long-term profits and even its very survival. 

 

PURPOSE DRIVEN EMPLOYEES: INNOVATIVE WAYS TO BOOST  PRODUCTIVITY & RETENTION 

Why do people vie to work with Google and Zappos? Because it is an opportunity for them to be transformed and grow – not just be another worker bee. People want to be purpose driven in their work and don’t want to give up 60 hours a week without having something in it for them other than a paycheck. In today's competitive marketplace, the more engaged and connected employees are to their work, the less likely they will be looking for other employment and the more effectively they will perform in their current role. 

 

STOP CLOSING SALES AND START OPENING RELATIONSHIPS: A NEW PARADIGM FOR GENERATING REVENUE AND SUSTAINABLE SUCCESS 

The traditional model of sales is to “always be closing”, but the fact is that high-pressure tactics no longer work in today’s sophisticated and competitive marketplace. Rather than concentrate on simply closing deals, organizations and entrepreneurs have a unique opportunity to emphasize meaningful communications that effectively increase sales through strong word-of-mouth referrals, repeat business and building relationships. 

 

THE LEADERSHIP QUOTIENT: GREAT LEADERS START WITH THEMSELVES  

A great leader models what they teach through their actions, not through just their words or promises. When they don’t, their team won’t trust them and a lack of buy-in occurs - leading to high staff turnover and toxicity. Too often, team members themselves abdicate opportunities for leadership by not owning results and self-accountability. An organization with a powerful  “Leadership Quotient” is one in which the vast majority of team members are true leaders by modeling self-responsibility themselves. When they do, both leaders and team players become super performers.
