Specialty Areas

As one of Australia’s leading well-being speakers for 15 years, Rob’s purpose is to provide meaningful and memorable experiences that leave people focused on looking after their most important asset – themselves!

His experience working with people at all levels of business, cardiac patients, elite athletes, remote island communities and women’s groups has evolved a communication style that genuinely connects with audiences. A long history of developing his craft ensures plenty of laughter and messages that stick.

As a leader for 25 years in the well-being industry, the workplace health appraisals program he founded has had over 30,000 people participate. So, there’s a ton of experience and information to draw upon when motivating people embrace their well-being and be their best.

Prior to that he, with degrees in anatomy and physiology, worked for five years in cardiac rehabilitation where he developed programs to motivate people who had heart attacks, bypasses, diabetes and high blood pressure to get back on their feet and get the most out of their lives. There, he wrote the internationally distributed book “Better Blood Pressure”.

Rob was awarded an Order of Australia Medal for his philanthropic work. He founded Its Time Foundation that replaces diesel power with solar in remote Pacific Island schools. He also initiated a series of plastic free oceans and climate actions, and a women’s health and resilience program in remote communities.

Speaking topics

It’s All About You

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, ‘It’s All About You’ 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. That’s because it’s fun – good for them and good for the 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. And that’s the key reason why this is an event highlight.

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.

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.
Economic Development New Zealand

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.“

I have to say thanks again, I have had such great feedback from your session. Never had that level of enthusiasm.
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!
McMillian Publishers Australia

Your presentation was absolutely brilliant! It was without a shadow of a doubt, the best presentation I’ve seen in my career.
