Adam Khoo is a Singaporean entrepreneur and writer who is recognized as one of the most vibrant and powerful motivational speakers in Asia. A self-made millionaire by the age of 26, he currently owns and runs several different companies.
His road to success was not an easy one as he was an extremely apathetic and indifferent child with a television addiction. He was poor in academics as well as social skills until the age of 13 when he was registered in a Super-Teen Camp by his parents which turned his life around.
At Super-Teen, his abilities were discovered with aid from the neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), an innovative learning technique. This marked the beginning of Adam’s interest and journey in mastering motivational techniques which formed the basis of many of his best-selling books and seminars.
At the age of 13 came the turning point in his life, when his parents enrolled him for a five-day residential program at Ladyhill Hotel called Super-Teen Camp. At the camp, his talent was spotted by Dr. Ernest Wong, founder, principal consultant and master teacher of Ernesco, the Centre for Motivational Language Learning.
At the age of 21, Adam Khoo completed National Service in the Republic of Singapore Air Force. After that, he collaborated with his three National University of Singapore (NUS) friends and co-founded an event management company, Creatsoul Entertainment. The company organized various fun activities for its clients and was later re-registered as Event Gurus Pte Ltd.
He is also a licensed Master Practitioner and Trainer in Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP). In his transformational Patterns of Excellence (POE) program, he shares the powerful NLP techniques such as ‘Anchoring’ to help participants access their resourceful state and tap into their personal power to achieve excellence in their various fields of endeavor. Over the last 15 years, he has trained over 500,000+ students, teachers, professionals, executives, managers and business owners.
His book ‘Master Your Mind, Design Your Destiny™’ which was the second highest selling book in Singapore in 2004, was on the best-sellers list for 36 consecutive weeks. His next two books ‘Secrets Of Self-Made Millionaires’ and ‘Secrets of Millionaire Investors’ both listed and stayed on the Number One spot on the Straits Times Best Sellers List for more than 52 weeks.
He also authored ‘Nurturing the Winner and Genius in Your Child’, published in April 2008, ‘Secrets of Building Multi-Million Dollar Businesses’ launched October 2008, ‘Profit from the Panic!’ launched in January 2009, ‘Secrets of Successful Teens’ in June 2009.
In 2010, he wrote ‘Profit from the Asian Recovery’ co-authored by Jason Wee, CFA, to share powerful investing strategies on profiting from Asia stocks. His latest book released in late 2011 is titled ‘Winning the Game of Life!’ that hit number 5 on the National Best Sellers list. His success and achievements are regularly featured in regional media like the Straits Times, the Business Times, the New Paper, Lianhe Zaobao, Channel News Asia, Channel U, Channel 8, Newsradio 938, The Hindu, The Malaysian Sun and many more.
In 2007, he was ranked among the top 25 richest Singaporeans under the age of 40 by The Executive Magazine. In 2008, Adam was awarded the NUS Business School Eminent Alumni Award for being one of Singapore’s most successful and prominent business leaders.
