Adam is the best conference entertainer we have had in over 20 years. He kept us mesmerised before, during and after the dinner. Thank you Adam.

The Magician

What's the secret to great magic?

I grew up working on a street market in London - a slick talking teen who could command any crowd. 
I was destined to trade my market stall for a stage.

Now I rock events with powerful illusions that help people connect with the magic within.

Sleights, misdirection, psychology & wordplay are just a few ingredients in my proven recipe.

The Poet

I create poetic rhyming stories that transform into tricks. 

Riddles from my book 
Riddle & Rhyme become mind-blowing experiments - solve a riddle and I'll blow your mind with the answer.

You could say my poetry feels like magic.

The Speaker

At school I was always in trouble for talking, but it paid off eventually.

Some of my favourite
 themes to speak on are; wonder & awe, transformation, creativity and the magic of language.

Naturally, magic and poetry weave their way into every talk and keynote.

As we speak we create

My purpose is to remind people of the magic within themselves.

My passion is abundant, inspiring others to connect with their purpose too.

What makes Adam so great & captivating is the gift he has with words & communication. That last piece was simply mesmerising! He also has this wonderful combination of confidence & humility. That's what the magic is.

Adam is fantastic! I had him open our international conference - he involved everyone and created such a great vibe for the rest of our conference I instantly re-booked him for another event. I can't recommend him enough

Australasian Diabetes Congress


It was brilliant, a real highlight! The magic was mind-bending and had everyone talking afterwards - what really resonated was how you truly embraced our messaging and your ability to weave it into your show.
