What Sets Adam Apart

“There is no shortage of speakers available for business coaching.  What sets Adam apart is his genuine, down-to-earth interest in the success of not only corporate goals but personal ones as well.  Adam has provided us with the tools to take large, multi-year goals and then work backwards to make the changes in our everyday lives in order to achieve them.  I would not hesitate to recommend Adam to anyone or group who is looking at understanding what success looks like on their terms and what’s required to achieve it.”

Extremely engaging, practical and very impactful!

“A huge thank you to Adam for his time and presentation!   I found his talk extremely engaging, practical and very impactful.   I was also on the speaker’s list that weekend, giving two presentations to my fellow optometrists and staff on topics related to eye health and office management.  I have been teaching part-time outside of clinical practice for a number of years now, and really enjoy teaching and lecturing – and when I attend a lecture or presentation that was as good as Kreek’s – it is a huge learning and growth opportunity for me as well – on so many levels!!  So a huge thank you!  I loved it all!”

Our purpose at KreekSpeak Business Solutions is to energetically deliver unique insights, novel education and grounded coaching to positively impact human and business development around the globe.

We live the following values and incorporate them into everything we do.

Generous impact to our clients


We give our full heart to our clients to make the maximum impact on organizational cultures and the individuals that drive organizational success.

This means:

  • Taking the extra time to talk to a client, fan or professional whenever possible
  • Always looking for ways to add more value to clients, events and cultures
  • Reaching out with extra resources, just because it feels like the right thing to do
  • Offering free exercise sessions, and getting moving with coaching clients
Loving a challenge


We look for growth in the hard places. We are no strangers to hard work, perseverance and grit. We give the extra effort to get the job done on time, on budget, zero harm.

This means:

  • Our first response to any creative idea is, “Yes. Let’s explore this more.”
  • Experimenting regularly and trying new ideas and techniques
  • Welcoming the satisfying exhaustion that comes from delivering good service with good ethics and good values
  • Looking for the right ways to inspire interactivity during presentations
Pursuing Excellence


Being great is not a destination, but a continuous habit and discipline. We look to get better and be better every day in every way.

This means:

  • Regularly looking for ways to increase administrative competence and productivity
  • Finding great clients that inspire our best work
  • Building a support system outside of our regular business network that supports our organizational goals
  • Enduring bad days and bad weeks and learning from failure to make future days and weeks better
