Adam Blank is an individual with challenges of visual impairment, albinism and autism. He is a gifted motivational speaker who has gained recognition for his passionate presentations to school districts and intermediate units throughout the state of Pennsylvania. A gift for inspiring others was discovered when he was asked to explain the services he received while in public school to a group of Superintendents and School Board members at the Intermediate Unit 1 Convention in the spring of 2013. He had such a positive impact on his audience that word spread quickly of his ability to convey his message like no one else.
Since that first speech, Adam’s services have been in high demand. He formed a Public Speaking Company in 2014 (APB Public Speaking Company) and continues to speak to audiences of educators about how they change lives.
