Adam has delivered a TEDx Talk titled “The Importance of How” and has also appeared on the Sunrise program (catch the end of the clip for some high praise from Kochie!) spreading his challenge and optimism about great Australian Schools.

Adam’s powerful keynote “No More Anti-Bullying Programs” is a confronting look at how we’ve gotten our approach to bullying wrong and exactly what each school can do to turn the scourge of bullying around.
Adam’s book “Restoring Teaching” is all about how we can re-build community status and regard for teachers by adopting a new, student-centred level of expertise within our practice, igniting a grassroots revolution in education. His keynote on this topic is a game-changer.
Perfect for inspiring your next Principal or School Leadership conference “Leading School Culture” is a rollicking journey from confusion about School Leadership to clarity, purpose and vision.
“Leading Whole School Behaviour Improvement” is a levelling up of current efforts, matrices, hypotehtcials and programs tethered to the outdated notion of ’Behaviour Management’ and an awakening of what happens when conduct, language and mindset are instead the focus.
Restorative Practices works. It’s a philosophy that sits neatly with almost every educator’s purpose for working with young people. But it hasn’t always been implemented well in schools. “RP2.0” is a keynote about addressing that. It’s time for your school to have a truly restorative future.
“The Grown-Ups in the Room” is a practical, hilarious and actionable look at staff cohesion. It’s about communication, cohesion and a staff of educators in your school who are mobilised fully behind your vision. Sounds ok … am I right?
“Restorative Classrooms, Strong Classrooms” is about unleashing the teacher within. When teachers learn to shed the teacher they through they had to be in preference for the teacher they knew they could be (through ridiculously easy and practical shifts) everyone wins. This keynote is high impact and high engagement.
