"Adam is an absolute gem for our webinars. He researches the subject countries - and has visited many of them anyway for his television work - so his contribution is always enlightening. His presentation and delivery are perfect. He has a lively manner, involves the other speakers - but won't let them off the hook if they give a bland answer, and that helps to create the webinar's 'live' feel and keeps the audience involved."
