It’s All About Your People
With the pressures of modern life, looking after people’s well-being has never been more important. When people are the most important asset in an organisation, the ‘It’s All About You’ session is a seriously valuable time-out for them to freshen up and refocus.
- They will talk about it for a long time. That means it was impactful.
- They will laugh. Because it’s fun – good for them and good for your event.
- They will feel cared about. Yes, a powerful ‘we care’ signal from your organisation.
- They will leave with a swag of immediate actions to take care of their most important asset – themselves. That’s the key reason why this will be a highlight of your event.
Whether it’s to kick start a conference day, a client event, or a staff development initiative, relevant to everyone, this session a sure-fire inclusion on almost any agenda. (NFPs and schools don’t hesitate to call and ask the question, Rob has a strong CSR commitment that space.)
“Rob’s session was fantastic. I loved the fact that we talked about something completely different. It was a great way to start the conference.”
Chairman, Facility Management Association of Australia
“We had an inkling of Rob’s high energy approach, but nothing prepared us for the impact he had on delegates. His rich content and dynamic delivery is still resounding throughout our community.”
CEO, Economic Development New Zealand
What does the flight attendant say?
Yes, we all know the answer: “Put the oxygen on ourselves before helping others.” In the pace of modern life we are often busy looking after the needs of others and the organisation, often forgetting about giving high priority to looking after our most important asset – ourselves.
It’s a robust investment for organisations, because high-performance organisations depend on balanced high-performance people – yes? In the pace of modern business it’s easy to forget that people’s well-being is the essential ingredient for living the life they want. Effectiveness, personally and professionally, depends largely on our well-being, attitude and how we feel. It’s a prerequisite for sustained high performance. This session is a seriously valuable time-out for your people to freshen up, get balanced and increase their energy levels — especially when the pressure is on.
Many improve their health and work/life balance and that’s great, but it’s more than that. Being resilient, being a leader, being a parent, being a partner, being a team member, being an environmental citizen, making a difference in the world – it’s consistent small day to day actions that make the big difference to our long-term performance and quality of life. That’s the main take away that has people talking.
Facing the audience, the session is titled “It’s All About You” because it is 🙂
“A must-have speaker. Brilliant, entertaining and inspiring, you can’t help but take notice. He blew them away and his message was so effectively our delegates were moved to take action immediately.“

It’s a highlight on almost any event
A vast range of audiences, over two decades, have had a ton of fun and walked away motivated to take action – Teachers, Engineers, Waste Managers, Executive Forums, Nuns & Priests, Emerging Managers, Seafood Industry, Nurses, Painters, IT Teams, Electrical Sales, Surveyors, School Principals, Child Care Workers, Tourism Industry, Airport Managers, Farmers, Local Government Professionals, Defence, Hydraulic Hose Fitters, Administrators, Appliance Repairers, Project Managers, Gardeners, Franchisors, Franchisees, Tradies, Trainers, Association Executives, Hospital Managers, Auditors, Fire Fighters, Doctors, Hospital Managers …
It’s not just hot air
Events are often packed agendas – have you ever left an event motivated and “Gee, that was good, but I can’t remember everything I decided to do!” While the keynote is fast-paced and great fun, long term motivation and personal change is what it’s about. So, each audience member receives real stuff to take home – free and without any hooks attached! Including a laminated handout of tips and information and on-line access to extensive resources.
“A great session to raise our members’ awareness of the critical need to look after their own wellbeing as a pre-requisite to successfully manage their businesses.”
CEO, Victorian Caravan Parks Association
“Your presentation was awesome and well received by everyone.”
Executive Officer, NSW Association of Catholic School Principal
And if your agenda has the room …
Rob’s workshop “Setting Goals That Really Matter” is a neat addition for the whole group or as a workshop stream.
Rob’s also available to deliver his straight to the point session: “Create Authentic Engagement with any Audience“. Whether it’s presenting publicly, to staff meetings, a sales pitch, a wedding speech or negotiating a contract – get the key elements right and you’ll do it well.
Also, ask about Rob’s inspirational add-on sessions on sustainability, women’s health and other CSR initiatives – he received an Order of Australia Medal for that work.
Rob can also work with your emcee to set up a thread through the conference, so delegates get more value from all your agenda items.
And it’s safe
Let’s face it – if you are booking a speaker you want the audience to say you made a great choice – yes? The session is a ton of fun with much take home value, but it’s delivered in an environment that is completely safe, relevant to and respectful of everyone in the audience. That skill has been crafted over twenty years and is a key reason why feedback is overwhelmingly positive.
I love the first few minutes of a session when the audience is laughing and fully engaged. And at the back of the room is the person who booked me – started in that “I hope they like it” mode – is relaxed seeing that it’s working a treat.
“I have to say thanks again, I have had such great feedback from your session. Never had that level of enthusiasm.”
General Manager, Disability Services Australia
“I found Rob when searching for something different to offer my sales team at our national conference. He was engaging, funny, personable, serious and made sense to a team of over-achievers who didn’t always look after themselves! The team loved him and his message and I recommend him to anyone who wants to let their staff know that they are valued!”
National Sales Manager, McMillian Publishers Australia
