Working with students and working with adults who impact the lives of students energizes me. I have led full-day diversity conferences, planned and executed multi-day retreats, facilitated countless workshops and professional development opportunities and delivered keynote speeches for public and private schools and organizations. 

My approach is always engaging and interactive. Whether the topic is light or heavy it is important and necessary to embed elements of fun and play. "Talking at" doesn't promote the best way to learn because the best knowledge is shared and in the room (and outside the room) with the aid of activities that get people thinking, moving, and reflecting.


Moments of discomfort is where we learn and grow. I encourage everyone to lean in, make mistakes, listen, and tell their story.



"Adrian Michael brought the appropriate balance of humor, encouragement, and challenge to each session--and was both inspiring and highly accessible.


My aim for our two days with Adrian Michael was ambitious, and it’s fair to say he over-delivered. I wanted our faculty to leave the training with a deeper sense of purpose, a greater commitment to our collective mission, and a new appreciation for one another. Our two days together offered the perfect balance of deep reflection, constructive discomfort, and team building, and our faculty started the new school year with inspiration and gratitude."

"Students and faculty benefited from hearing and working directly with Adrian Michael Green, he brings approachability, equity, and understanding in a super cool relevant way that brought our entire community together.


Students literally asked if he could stay. His work in classes was so impactful.
