Full Presenter Profile & Bio
Adam Voigt is a real leader who walks the talk. His speaking offerings are filled with stories, messages, tools and hope developed from years of successful School Leadership as a Principal in some of Australia’s most challenging locations. Adam is a leader & speaker who has genuinely ‘been there and done that’.
Adam is obsessed with Learning. Whether it’s in a formal learning environment, like a school where Adam himself learned so much at the coalface, or in the team, corporate or organizational fields – he is convinced that Learning is the lever you need to pull if you are serious about transformation.
Adam’s speaking and programs have taken him across Australia and internationally. Just some of his achievements include:
- being featured on Channel 7’s Sunrise program as a Bullying Expert
- presenting a TED Talk at the inaugural TEDx Darwin event
- winning his first Principal position at only 35 years of age.
- presenting on School Culture at the 2012 ACEL Conference in Brisbane
- opening a brand new Northern Territory school as it’s inaugural Principal.
- speaking at International Conferences about developing successful school cultures in Singapore and then also more recently – in Kazakhstan
Adam is now connecting with leaders and educators locally and internationally with bias for long-term Partnerships that sustain change. His determination to impact and empower all leaders with this message is endless and this shines through each and every presentation.
He has a passion for empowering as many dedicated leaders and educators as possible with the tools, skills and attitudes necessary to build meaningful, productive relationships wherever they are. And for these relationships to be leveraged for a new level of performance and leadership potential.
Education and Schools
Adam speaks widely, both locally and internationally, to School and Education System Leaders about the critical importance of School Culture, Behaviour Improvement, Classroom Practice, Student Engagement, Cultural Leadership, Bullying Prevention and Restorative Practices. His presentations are high-impact, engaging, provocative and exude a clear bias for change.
Adam’s work as a successful School Principal in some of Australia’s toughest locations means he reeks credibility and the humour, stories and case studies behind his evidence mean his keynote speeches ring true with his audiences everywhere.
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.
If you are looking to run an event roughly the same as last year’s or to induce the same eye-rolling accompanied with most speeches about motivation, inspiration and ‘following your dreams’… well, you’re probably in the wrong place!
However… if you are looking for a transformative, engaging and perhaps even provocative speaker who will plant the seed of learning as a highly exciting lever for team and individual performance improvement – then we need to talk.
No smoke and mirrors here. It’s just about understanding how to progress your organization through three phases:
- Learning Activity
- Learning Relationships
- Learning Cultures
It’s always easy for a speaker to stick a video in here giving you a well rehearsed three minute snapshot his/her earth-shattering message. But this isn’t about me – it’s about your team!
