A life time of challenges hasn't held Tony Adams back!  He's is an inspiring speaker and successful businessman whose strategies have taken him to the heights of the music industry, stockbroking, retailing and becoming a two times Guinness Book of Records holder! 


Crippled at birth, Tony Adams beat horrendous odds to win numerous New Zealand dance titles and become New Zealand’s first male tap dancing teacher. Even more amazing, in June 2009 he joined a select few who hold multiple Guinness World Records™ by tap dancing at 17.6 beats a second for 60 seconds to be recognised as the fastest tap dancer in the world!

Tony battled with dyslexia as a teenager and over came this to achieve qualifications in architecture and share-broking. He received his share broking licence just two weeks before the 1987 stock-market crash. Despite this timing he went on to become one of New Zealand’s leading retail stockbrokers and achieved such success that he was able to retire in his mid-40s.

Against a backdrop of falling CD sales and uncertainty in the future of the music industry he co-founded Sydney based Scorpio Music in 2005, the associate company of which now manages 12 international bands and artists including the hugely successful Evermore, Operator Please and The Hampdens.

Tony took his selling and customer psychology skills learned in stock market trading and applied them to the competitive world of retailing. Over a period of 4 years he opened 3 antique & collectibles shops in unfashionable suburban locations and achieved 500 customers per weekend in each shop. This was attained without a dollar being spent on advertising or promotions.

Over a lifetime of challenges, Tony has turned his life around by learning to overcome adversity in his business and personal life. He is passionate about sharing his five-step process for achieving powerful change – a process that can work for everyone whether in sales, management or on your own as a sole trader.

Tony Adams strongly believes that with the power of the mind we all have the ability to succeed in realising our dreams – whatever they may be.  He is an inspiring speaker with a powerful message and a definite WOW factor presentation!
