A former teacher and international pole-vaulter, Adam was attempting to reach the Olympics in 2008 when his career was cut short by a freak accident. During the following two years on crutches, trying to cope with the realisation he would never compete again, Adam hit rock bottom. He had to rebuild his dreams and identity, eventually fighting back to represent Great Britain in a Paralympic sport and refocusing to help others achieve, regardless of their obstacles.
In 2013, Adam co-authored The New Rules of Success, sharing his no-nonsense approach to health, family and leadership. The success of this bestselling book led to the creation of Awaken Your Alpha and Adam’s quest to share inspirational stories, strategies and insights to becoming the leader in your life. As a coach and mentor, he works to cultivate the mindset needed for excellence and fulfillment. As a keynote speaker, Adam gave the TEDx talk Awaken Your Alpha, How to Rise Up and has been featured in The Huffington Post, ESPN, PodFest, Influencers Radio and many other media outlets.
Originally from West Sussex in the south of England, Adam recently achieved a lifelong dream to move his family to the United States.
