“Adam’s messages are powerful testaments to the experiences he’s collected thus far in his life and are an inspiration to hear. Being that I am a Sales Executive, my job requires me to take risks, and Adam helped me understand that without them, I can’t be as successful as I want to be.  I look forward to applying his messages to my life and would highly recommend others to do the same.”

“Adam James captivated over 500 of our student employees with his story of perseverance with an energy that engaged the audience.  His message challenged the students to pursue and accomplish their passionate dreams of success and to strive to overcome the adversity they may face.  Adam’s speech is one they will not soon forget.”

David BowlesDirector of Campus Recreation, University of Florida

“Adam expertly delivers a great message and provides a powerful reminder of the need to believe in yourself.  I know young audiences will relate to and be inspired by what Adam shares, but audiences of any generation will find that they are reminded of things they may have lost sight of, from a new and fresh perspective.”

Ted SottongFounder, Pickup the Ball, Inc.

“Adam brought great passion and a solid message to our student and professional staff in preparation for the upcoming school year.  Adam’s personal story and how he personalized it to our mission and core values helped summarize all they learned and prepped for with their positions, re-enforced the value they bring to our department and provided a high energy send off into their work year.  Many of our students commented how they could relate to Adam in several ways and/or just enjoyed his message which helped them have a better understanding of what they mean to our department and overall as good people. I would recommend Adam to all recreation departments to speak to their staff at anytime of the year since he has lived and learned from our profession and is now trying to help improve it serving as a resource for our students.”

Jim WalczykDirector of Recreational Services, University of North Carolina at Charlotte

“If you are looking for an effective speaker for an upcoming event you would do well to book Adam James of Sights, Sounds, & Success. I attended “Optimize Your Business Performance” this week and came away not only motivated to take action but I also had an action plan to go with that motivation. Adam is passionate about giving his audience practical tools to move you forward with your business or with your life. This was the second time I’ve been in Adam’s audience; there is always more to learn.”

Amy SwingleDirector of Campus Recreation, Florida Gulf Coast University

“I’ve been tasked with booking speakers for N.A.P.L.E.S. for the last 7 years and can honestly say that Adam is among the best speakers who have presented to our entrepreneurs networking group. Adam’s extreme passion shines through when he speaks. He was very well prepared and did an excellent job of engaging the audience. We left our meeting with appreciation for the opportunities that we have and motivation to do the best we can to take advantage of them.”

“We asked Adam James to kick off our school year and speak to our 400 campus recreation student employees and he set the tone for us in an extraordinary way .  The passion and intensity, the care and authenticity, and the connectivity Adam brought to us through his presentation was absolutely perfect.  I believe Adam’s personal experiences allow many to connect with his message and his energy is more than motivating to move individuals to action. I consider Adam a friend, colleague, and true professional that will bring value to any size team at any level of interaction.”

Gene SherryExecutive Director Campus Recreation & Wellness, Georgia Southern University

“Adam’s message of hope will resonate with any audience and any person with a desire to improve their quality of life and life experiences. Adam’s speak straight approach is well received and welcomed in a time where many are afraid to say what needs to be heard. I highly recommend Adam to any organization looking for someone to bring new energy and restored passion to their team.”
