About Adam Markel
I’ve been an author and speaker for more than 10 years since pivoting from a very successful law firm career. The skills of resilient leaders has been my obsession for several years and I’ve been privileged to speak on the topic all over the world. Our research says we have to develop resilience before we need it and resilient teams change the world.
