Rob Edwards B. Sc. CSP
On stage or in-house Rob’s purpose is to provide a meaningful and truly memorable experience, so people leave thinking and talking about their most important asset, themselves. Plenty of laughter and a long history of learning his craft well ensure those messages stick and people are motivated to do stuff. Conference organisers are left feeling well satisfied with their speaker choice.
Rob has extensive experience working with people at all levels of business, cardiac patients, young offenders, elite athletes and, through his charity, remote island communities. All of that has developed a communication style that genuinely connects with people. 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 a Bachelor of Science with majors in Anatomy & Physiology.
He was a company director for 20 years in the well-being industry where he has designed and delivered staff development and appraisal programs for hundreds organizations.
Prior to that he worked for five years in a cardiac rehabilitation program where he motivating 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”.
In the mid 80’s he took a year out with a select group of twenty people to develop and implement the Wilderness Project. A unique rehabilitation program for young offenders.
Rob also manages the Its Time Foundation that he established in 2008 – that replaces diesel power with solar in remote island schools.
