Why Adam Kreek?

An Olympic Gold Medalist, sports analyst, adventurer and social entrepreneur, Adam Kreek is a corporate trainer who walks the talk. Like you, he’s in the trenches, building his business and his vocation. During his previous 13-year rowing career, Kreek won over 60 medals, including 43 gold medal performances.  In 2013, Adam made the first ever attempt to row unsupported across the Atlantic Ocean from Africa to America, the subject of the NBC Dateline Documentary, Capsized.  

Kreek is presently a columnist and analyst with CBC Sports; in his columns, he shares health and wellness strategies for peak performance. An engineer by training, Adam chairs the board of Cowichan Energy Alternatives, a low carbon start-up on Vancouver Island. Adam is also a Champion of the Canadian Men’s Health Foundation, an organisation dedicated to bettering health through science-based strategies.

A seasoned corporate trainer, Kreek teaches strategies of high performance to clients globally. He began training students as a young athlete, then moved into full-time corporate training after his team won Olympic Gold in 2008. Kreek is well read. His real-life experience enables him to offer practical, powerful, and transformative teaching on personal leadership and effective teamwork that result in changed perspectives, behaviours and ultimately, revitalised organisational cultures.

Kreek holds a degree in Geotechnical Engineering and Hydrology from Stanford University and is on track to earn an MBA from Queen’s University in 2018.

Adam and his team at KreekSpeak Business Solutions have found their purpose: to offer relevant, powerful, and transformative teaching on personal leadership and effective teamwork. The method?  Communicate key lessons on high performance, framed in compelling narratives and supported by relevant research. This formula changes perspectives, behaviours and ultimately, organisational culture.

Kreek lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with his pregnant wife and two children.
