Book Rob Edwards for speaking engagements & events.
In front of an audience my purpose is to provide a meaningful and truly memorable experience, so people leave thinking and talking about their most important asset: themselves! It’s thought provoking and laughter is a must to get those messages to stick. It’s not just a hyped up motivational thing — I’m there to give people real stuff to do and share with their friends and families.
My diverse experience working with people at all levels of business, cardiac patients, young offenders, elite athletes and, through my charity, remote island communities I have developed a communication style that genuinely connects with people to make a lasting positive difference in their lives. I’ve been speaking professionally for 20 years and was delighted to be one of only two Australians to receive the internationally recognized status of Certified Speaking Professional in 2012 (it’s pretty tough to get). Here is some of my story:
I then joined a select group of twenty people to develop and implement the Wilderness Project. A unique wilderness based rehabilitation program for young offenders. Amongst other things I looked after health and fitness activities. That year was an extraordinary life changing challenge — a magic learning experience about people and life.
Helping business look after it’s most important asset – people!
From a conference organisers perspective, it’s a fantastic opportunity to add balance, freshness and a real people focus to your event. Completely relevant to every person in the audience — the tougher the agenda the better! And it sends a powerful “we care” signal.
“Live Well – It’s All About You” is a massively entertaining and inspirational kick start to the day or wake ‘em up after lunch on any conference agenda.
“Live Well to Sell Well” injects energy, balance and a “you people really matter” feel to sales conferences.
“Setting Goals That Really Matter” is a workshop that leaves people with a clear step by step process to embed their personal goals.
And it all works a treat on leadership programs where it’s crucial they get themselves right to be their best in leading others.
What does the flight attendant say?
Yeah! We all know the answer: “When the oxygen mask falls from the roof we must put it on ourselves before we can help others!”
Here’s an hour or two for your people to focus on looking after themselves first. They will leave motivated to act on a swag of small things that will make a real difference in their lives. It’s a fun but serious step toward them being more balanced and feeling their best when looking after clients, peers, staff and family.
They will laugh during it, think long about and change because of it. Great for them! Great for business!
Is there more you can do to help your people be their best?
High performance business depends 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.
A fun yet strong initiative that gives your people a high value time-out to freshen up, get balanced and increase their energy levels — especially when the pressure is on.
Rob will help your people:
Identify the “easy stuff” that will help them live the life they want to live
Recognise important things they have been putting off and why they do it
Appreciate that small sustained investments of time is the key to increased effectiveness
Utilise a strategy for immediate and sustainable goal setting
Take away a range of practical tips and materials to enhance their health and well-being
And no need to take notes — everyone gets a laminated handout with heaps of tips, links and homework (yes homework!) to do what’s necessary to enjoy the quality of life they expect.
Thousands now have more energy, are more switched on, less stressed, balanced, improved relationships, fitter, leaner, have less back pain and more than a few have detected conditions with life saving results.
This IS NOT a ‘get lean, get fit, don’t smoke’ lecture!! While health provides many of the examples it’s about the motivation, decision making and tools for sustained positive change: be that health, relationships, work, parenting, environment, making a difference … What is important to you? AND it’s about doing the easy stuff that’s within reach of all of us. Picking the low hanging fruit can deliver serious long-term benefits in all aspects of our lives. Sure it’s motivating, but it’s not fluff! People leave with real doable actions to immediately enhance the quality of their lives.
Rob has diverse experience working with people at all levels of business, cardiac patients, young offenders, elite athletes and remote island communities. In doing so has developed a communication style that genuinely connects with people to make a lasting positive difference in their lives. It’s thought provoking and laughter is guaranteed. Audiences love it and talk about it for ages.
Brilliant and inspiring, you can’t help but take notice. He blew them away. A must have speaker at any conference.
The team loved him and his message and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who wants to let their staff know that they are valued!
The most useful information session I’ve been to in 12 years.
Just brilliant. Very thought provoking. The David Suzuki ‘do your homework’ anecdote will stay with me forever. Thanks Rob.
