Get a Speaker for Your Next Event

If you need a speaker that can engage your audience, help them see practical steps forward, and move them toward your new vision… I speak to universities, businesses, green teams, city councils, conferences, USGBC local chapters, Transition Town groups, local non-profits, and many others. Here is a sample of the talks that I offer:

STRESS-FREE SUSTAINABILITY… Leverage Your Emotions, Avoid Burnout and Influence for Good

LEVERAGE YOUR GREEN TEAM… Small Steps to Transform Your Company

LAUNCH YOUR IDEA… Even If You’re Scared and Have No Experience

I can share dozens of stories from various industries and communities, or I can focus on one particular project that fits your theme.

For instance, here is a keynote I gave at the 2016 Iowa Recycling Association Conference using, called “Sustainability: From Contempt, to Curiosity, to Commitment” that focused on launching recycling at-the-pump for convenience store customers while I was manager of sustainability for Kum & Go.

For other areas I can focus on, see my Coaching page.

I also offer workshop-style presentations and virtual options.  For instance, here is a webinar series I led for the Joslyn Institute for Sustainable Communities:


Adam has been featured in the following:


  • George Stone

    Adam brought a refreshing topic that truly connected the many varied themes of our sustainability conference! He is an inspired leader with a powerful message that clearly imparts inspiration to others. His engaging speaking style allows him to passionately address audiences on advocacy themes like emotional intelligence, psychology, teamwork, and perseverance. His ability to connect to a variety of personalities, ages, and cultures is a true gift!

    As someone who is ‘burnt out’ this was incredibly inspiring for me. I really liked the amount of interaction with all of the guests and I know they did too. The breakout session next door had to ask us to ‘please quiet down’ during our sharing. Adam’s presentation was energetic and very informative. I wish we could have had more time! It was great having this as a part of the summit, and I hope others use him!

    Thank you Adam, for providing a unique message that all of us can apply in more than just the sustainability dimension. We had very positive feedback in our small viewing party, and heard from one attendee watching remotely that it was the best of the webinars they had viewed.
