  • Each year at the ICE Conference we seek out the best possible speakers to motivate and support our attendees, who include, teachers, coaches, IT directors , librarians and administrators from Pre-K thru Higher Ed. Adam has the ability to speak to each and every one of those groups. He prioritizes building a foundation of support for each person who has the opportunity to interact with him. He is sincere and passionate about creating a climate for students to be successful and understands that supporting and connecting with educators is a vital key to accomplishing that goal. Role modeling, sharing resources, and connecting with people is at the heart of what Adam does. His impact on educators will no doubt touch the lives of students everywhere. Adam is a true inspiration!

Many in our district commented that he's the best keynote we have ever had. He was inspirational, real and focused on students while meeting the needs of all of our staff. His message of #KidsDeserveIt resonated with all of our staff and the combination of connecting with students with technology while keeping relationships as a top priority was exactly what we needed.

  • Adam is way more than a keynote speaker. He has made connections with our staff in Monticello that continue today. He's genuinely interested in the work we do with our students, and he pushes us to do whatever is needed for student success. His gift is in connections and relationships. You can meet Adam for 5 seconds and know that he will there for you anytime you have a question. In my experiences learning from some of the great leaders in education, working with Adam has had the greatest impact on me, our teachers, and, especially our students! They Deserve It!
