Australian Production Design Guild

Adam Elliot was a highly engaging speaker whose story of triumph was very inspirational. His presentation was a good mixture of comedy and life lessons with a message that is universal; you can do anything that you believe. He could not have been more generous with his time, chatting with people after his speech for as long as he possibly could and signing autographs for anyone who wanted. After being involved in many conferences as a delegate and organiser I have been exposed to many high profile speakers all around the world but Adam was head and shoulders above them all (figuratively of course!). One speaker that I highly recommend to anyone.
National Association of Australian University Colleges

Adam was an absolute delight. His talk engaged our people and was a source of humour and inspiration. He was extremely generous with his time, taking the time to meet with a number of our delegates which was a real highlight for them. His speech capped off a three day program and really brought it all into perspective and ensured the audience left on a high.

I believe Adam was the best speaker we have had at our Graduation Ceremony. He took the audience through the process of the Academy Awards, as if we were there with him. He appealed to all ages – from our 17 year old trainees to the grandparents attending the event in their support. His humour was contagious and he made himself available to our guests for questions, autographs and photo’s. I would recommend him highly for any event. Thank you Adam!

Adam presentation was extremely well received and was off centre to what everyone expected from a guest speaker when addressing a conservative "Building Industry" audience. It worked beautifully. Great use of visualise tools and his preparation was extremely professional.
Bluescope Lysaght

Adam was fantastic, a huge success and everyone loved him. His story was very funny and captivating. His style was warm and honest. He came across as an everyday guy, doing what he loves, who happened to win an Oscar along the way. He makes you feel like you could do it too!
Flight Centre

Adam presented a very stylish, humorous and personal account about his recent successes. It was exceptionally well pitched at students with a brilliant mix of images and anecdotes that had their attention all the way to the end. In fact you could hear a pin drop in that auditorium of 1000 people. Well done!

Adam kept the audience of 160 Educators totally enthralled at a breakfast held in Geelong, with his fantastic sense of humour and rise from the dole queue to his outstanding achievement winning the Oscar for Harvie Krumpet. Absolutely brilliant!!
Arthur Reed Photo’s

Adam Elliott is just delightful - very engaging and witty.  The sponsor for this event was particularly thrilled at the feedback and thanks from delegates. Clearly Adam faced difficulties and hardships during his journey, however at no stage during his presentation did  he convey the need for sympathy.  On the contrary - he received great admiration for his passion, determination and pragmatic approach to his quest. I happily recommend him to an audience that is looking for a speaker who takes listeners on his journey as though you were with him and delivered with such self-effacing style. We couldn't wipe the smiles from delegates' faces - he's a winner!

ABN AMRO Morgans

Adam was simply brilliant. He was thoughtful, approachable and funny. He spent so much time with everyone and was last to leave the event. His speech was great but the way he interacted with people was even better. 
Araluen

Adam was very engaging in his story and the style he used to present – slideshow and humour in particular. He understood enough of SEW’s business to relate his story to our needs – that of encouraging people to come up with innovative ideas and enter into the Brain Waves Cup competition – which  Adam was launching.
South East Water

Adam was engaging, funny and on theme with our night. His presentation was very professional and his story was truly interesting.

Have seen Adam before and knew he would be a hit with this crowd. He was terrific. Excellent timing, not smutty or indulgent, just right. Returned calls and email, made contact as promised... couldn’t fault Adam in any way at all. Everyone loved him.
