“I have seen dozens of Olympians speak at off-sites in the last 19 years, and Adam was by far the best. He was relevant to our business, and had a fascinating story. He wasn’t spewing business dogma. He spoke to the people in the room, leaving a lasting and positive impact that traveled through our office. I have heard nothing but rave reviews from all our employees.”

“We asked Adam to speak to 400 employees which included Managers, Sr Executive, Contract Professionals and others at our annual Health and Safety meetings to reinforce our safety culture and empower our teams with the courage to intervene.
Adam delivered exactly what we’d been looking for. His message was practical, strategies shared were hands-on and Adam’s experience in high-risk environments allowed him to connect authentically with our team members. Adam customized his message to meet the unique Safety needs of our industry and delivered content that will stick with our teams into the future. His conflict resolution model was especially powerful for me and something I’ll use in both my personal and professional life. His communication and stress management tools will have a lasting impact on our Safety Culture.
I’ve seen many keynote speakers and Adam is one of the best. I’d highly recommend Adam’s keynote to any organization that wants to reinforce Safety as a top priority for their teams.”

“It was an absolute pleasure having you join us at 55 North and the feedback we’ve received about your contribution to the event has been exceptional. The way you were able to weave other speaker comments into your presentation, complete with photos and quotes, really brought the audience along on the journey, and provided a great reinforcement of the theme and reason for taking the time to be in the room. I’ve never had another speaker do this so well–you blew me away with that! ”

“Adam was masterful at integrating our core themes from the day into an energized, motivating, involving presentation. Immediately after Adam’s presentation, hundreds of team members were committed to identifying and taking bold action towards their “gold medal moment”. Adam was the highlight of our rally! Thank you!”

I can’t tell how many people have praised Adam’s talk today. The feedback has been fantastic! Thank you, Adam, for delivering above and beyond our expectations. You nailed it. So much so that many people have asked me for your PowerPoint deck.
Thank you so much.”

Not having seen Adam present I was nervous of what he would deliver. Now having seen his presentation I know to trust the online videos and recommendations. He was outstanding! Adam really captured the audience’s attention – they were riveted for the full hour he spoke. His stories and candid advice where highly appreciated by the 550 UK business people who listened intently. Feedback following the event called out Adam’s presentation as a highlight with many attendees saying it was the best keynote presentation they had heard!
Adam tailored his presentation to our audience and used light hearted humor throughout. Most impressively he asked 550 senior business people to join him in singing the national anthem… and they did it willingly and passionately! Changing gears from business keynotes to hearing stories of team and personal success resonates with successful leaders. Adam’s presentation created a great buzz and following the presentation it enabled attendees to connect and get to know each other better.
Adam was great to work with and we hired him a second time to speak to our Latin American salesforce. We hope to work again with him in the future.

“Excellent – thanks for this and thanks again for everything you did for us at the conference. Every person I have spoken to (which is about 70% of the attendees!) have specifically mentioned your presentation when asked which elements they felt were most valuable.”

“Adam’s greatest strength is his authenticity. His enthusiasm is not rehearsed or forced – it is true to his personality and it is impossible not to be affected by his strong presence. Our attendees ranged in age from early 20′s to late 60′s, and they are all “hardened lawyers” – a tough crowd! Adam connected with each and every one of them, using a combination of humour, humility and inspiration. Weeks after the event, people are still talking about the retreat and Adam’s role in showing us how it takes different players to form an effective team. His message that it is only through failure that we can find ultimate success. That we need to move past our comfort zone, was particularly resonant. In fact, several attendees were so impressed by Adam’s presentation that they prepared a follow up seminar called: “What I learned from Adam” – this is unprecedented, and a tribute to the impact he had upon us, both individually and as an organization.”
“Would we recommend Adam? Without reservation! His story is credible, relatable and his impact is tangible. Truly a Gold Medal performance!”

“We were very pleased with Adam Kreek’s keynote at FCL’s Path to Performance event for 280 of our management employees. Adam took time, in advance, to get to know our organization, meet our leaders, and build relationships with our employees. He also incorporated our organization and its vision into his presentation. This went a long way to making the presentation unique and personal—we felt as though it was meant for us.
Adam’s message about asking ourselves, “Will it make the boat go faster?” is a concept that really resonated with people and has been repeated by our CEO. Another concept that people took from Adam’s presentation and have been using is, “we need to focus on the things that we can control and not on the things that we can’t”.
We would recommend Adam Kreek to others because his keynote set a wonderful tone for rolling out our new competency model. Adam inspired our management employees by sharing his own journey on his personal Path to Performance.”

“One of the finest young men I have met in terms of his athletic ability but more than that, the person is what has impressed me. Adam was the glue that held his team together and was a wonderful inspiration to not only his own team, but the entire Canadian Olympic team.
Adam is one of the finest Leaders I know…If you want to have some love, some laughs, I guarantee you will grow in the company of Adam Kreek. I know I did.”

“We recently had Adam share a keynote with our company on Mental Toughness, and it was absolutely brilliant! We needed someone who could deliver energy, a meaningful message and an understanding of our unique business; developing student entrepreneurs. Adam nailed it on all levels – then went on to surprise us with how well he was able to weave our culture and people into his stories.
Now, the true measure of an inspiring presentation, in my opinion, is when the conversation continues long after the presentation has ended. This has been the case for our team; in the days following Adam’s presentation we heard many in our group quoting him, and saw plans to infuse Adam’s lessons into the businesses our teams who were returning home to startup.
We are a unique brand, and are often hard to understand – Adam figured us out and left us wanting more.
Working with Adam and his team at KreekSpeak we easy and we would recommend them in a heartbeat.”
