  • How many times a day do we hear the 2019 buzz word of the year: innovation? While we understand its meaning, what many of us are after are new ways of thinking that create new market and network value, and changes the game for market leaders.

education - my career in fortnite

  • Much like most kids growing up in the 1990s, Adam played video games. He played a lot of video games. He’d talk about them online, and eventually started a blog. It developed a following. It got noticed by major companies. One of them served him a cease and desist. That was scary; but it was also validation: when he talked about his passion, people listened.

    Adam Rodricks has performed “My Career in Fortnite” in countless classrooms across the Toronto District School Board and Toronto Public Libraries. He inspires students by sharing how his unconventional journey gave way to the earliest forms of social media, before the industry existed and his career was born from his favourite pastime.

    With technologies rapidly advancing faster than most companies can plan for, many of the jobs of tomorrow do not exist today. But who’s to say that even though they don’t exist today, we can’t prepare?

Adam delivered a very engaging and educational talk on “How to build your brand on LinkedIn” at the Palmerston Public Library Small Business Series. His examples and stories were simple and effective in sharing the power of LinkedIn to your audience. He took time to answer all the attendees questions and provided fantastic answers. Highly recommend Adam share his message to groups who want to learn and take action on his knowledge.
