Rob Edwards B. Sc. CSP
On stage or in-house Rob’s purpose is to provide a meaningful and memorable experience that leaves people focused on looking after their most important asset, themselves. A long history of developing his craft ensures plenty of laughter and messages that stick. And his professionalism off stage makes life easy for event organisers. His experience working with people at all levels of business, cardiac patients, young offenders, elite athletes, remote island communities and women’s groups has evolved a communication style that genuinely connects with any audience. He’s been speaking professionally for 20 years and was one of only two Australians to receive the internationally recognized status of Certified Speaking Professional in 2012 (it’s pretty tough to get).
Rob has been a business leader for 20 years in the well-being industry designing and his staff delivering programs for hundreds organizations. The corporate health appraisal program he established has had over 25,000 business staff participate. Prior to that he worked for five years in a cardiac rehabilitation program where he developed programs to motivate people who had heart attacks, bypasses, diabetes and the like to get back on their feet and get the most out of their lives. There he wrote the internationally distributed book “Better Blood Pressure”. He took a year out with a group of 20 others to develop and implement a wilderness based rehabilitation program for young offenders. Rob also founded and manages Its Time Foundation that replaces diesel power with solar in remote island schools. He also established a Women’s Health and Resilience program in Fiji and the Plastic Free Oceans platform.
