Keynote Speaking & Workshops on Resilience



Most people think the definition of resilience is the ability to bounce back from hardship. While this is certainly an important aspect of resilience, Adam Markel, resilience keynote speaker, believes that any singular definition ignores the complexity of this most crucial state of being.


Yes, resilience enables you to bounce back from challenges … and end up even stronger. Through research and experience, Adam discovered that being resilient makes you better able to effectively utilize change, create solutions, manage your energy and often, determine how situations will unfold in your life.

Keynote Topic #1

The Way Forward

Going Back Is Not An Option, Here’s the Way Forward

Over the past year leaders were increasingly faced with the challenge of optimizing employee performance while championing them through the very real issues of the pandemic and social unrest. According to the Harvard Business Review, employee productivity in most organizations dropped by at least 3 to 6 percent during COVID-19.

Many of us are relieved at the prospect of getting back to “normal”. But let’s face it, these issues are unlikely to be resolved by going back to the way organizations used to function. We’re also witnessing a cultural shift where a large percentage of employees, in particular millennials, have new expectations around what is required to build a culture of collaboration and productivity.

The only way forward is to become Change Proof – to have the capacity to leverage uncertainty and change – whether it’s the new normal or the next normal – to build long-term growth. The way forward involves a series of small but meaningful PIVOTS that reset, re-energize and re-engage our workforce.

Resilience is the foundation, both individually and organizationally. Research shows that by utilizing innovative recovery techniques and resilience rituals, we don’t just recover from adversity we actually increase our capacity to address future stress and avoid costly burnout. In other words, we are built to bounce forward, not back. Our brains can learn (at almost any age) how to process stress and turn it into strategy — by building the narrative of resilience. Resilient cultures enjoy improved health, more energy, passion and engagement, lower turnover and greater team innovation and productivity.

In his highly interactive resilience keynote, The Way Forward, Adam shares tangible, impactful practices to improve our levels of resilience – and how to leverage the power of uncertainty to build long-term growth and become Change Proof.

Keynote Topic #2

Got Your Back

Create a Culture of Care & Collaboration

Stress and overwhelm are even larger challenges for organizations today, making these questions ever more important: Are we too tired, busy or burned-out to think big? And if so, what do we do about it? With the pace of change only continuing to escalate during and after COVID-19, it’s critical that businesses provide an optimal environment for people to be at their best.

With an estimated $62 billion being spent each year in corporate health and safety costs alone due to exhaustion and burnout, it’s vital that leaders develop the organizational capacity to not only perform under stress, but to thrive in the face of it.

In this virtual, high-energy and interactive talk, Adam explores the critical factors necessary to build higher performance capacity and resilience through a Got Your Back Culture. Your team will leave with tangible takeaways for a lasting impact well after the event is over.

Keynote Topic #3

Change Proof

Leveraging the Power of Uncertainty to Create Long-Term Resilience

Unprecedented, chaotic, overwhelming, exhausting. These are the words most frequently used today to describe our personal and professional lives. Let’s face it though, this is not the first time – nor will it be the last – that we will be challenged on a mental, emotional, physical, and yes, even a spiritual level. When we’re not at our best in these areas, we just don’t perform well, leaving creativity, flexibility and innovation on the table. The impact? Our key performance indicators suffer, including revenue and profitability.


Today’s imperative is for our organizations to cultivate our ability to become Change-Proof: having the ability to not just to ride the waves of change… but to shred them and stay on top for the long ride! Resilience is the foundation, both individually and organizationally, for maintaining performance. Research shows that when we develop, practice, and invest in the skills of resilience, the results are improved health, more energy, passion and engagement, lower turnover and greater team innovation and performance.

In this high-energy, virtual keynote speech on resilience, Adam teaches simple, usable daily practices to improve our levels of resilience and how to leverage the stress of uncertainty and change to build long-term growth.
