What People Have Said
You are a phenomenal speaker and performer. You were greatly a huge hit as our keynote speaker at FUN expo in Las Vegas. You went the extra hundred miles to personalize the presentation and I can't tell you how many people made it a point to tell me afterwards just how much they enjoyed and appreciated your efforts.
When I saw your tape and made the decision that you were right for our keynote, I was impressed by your talent, but especially by the way you integrate it into a valuable message. You were even better than I expected! You gave us a lot to think about as well as great entertainment.
Thank you, thank you, thank you,
Carol Sjolander, Executive Director
I can't thank you enough for the truly inspiring message you brought to our management conference. Some of the comments we received from over 500 managers in the Department include the following:
"I've been attending these conferences since 1977. And in all those 34 years, Rob is the only outside guest speaker who ever received a standing ovation."
"First he got people to open up with all the inside jokes. Then, when he told us his personal story, it struck a very deep chord with people's emotions."
"His blend of humor and message was captivating and compelling."
Yours was truly an interactive program on team-building and stress reduction. Thank you so much for teaching all of us, and me in particular, that keeping a good life-balance means counter-balancing the things that are important to measure with the things that are immeasurably important. Your concept of linking trust and accountability and the way "pits are also seeds" when it comes to turning adversity into opportunity was extremely inspirational to all of us.
Just yesterday, I found myself talking to my staff about one of your concepts: "WHOOPS" (i.e., When Humans Overcome Obstacles, Providence Smiles!). It was so easy to remember - and indeed, so timely in my profession.
Otto Solorzano, Chief Financial Officer
Thank you for the outstanding presentation that you provided for our annual Employee Recognition Dinner.
I am impressed by how much time, research and effort you made to customize the program to current events and projects at UMass Memorial. Every comment made provided a connection with the many physicians, administrators and employees in attendance, as you understood the challenges we are facing and were able to make us laugh despite the stress that many of us experience on a daily basis. The messages of hope, intertwined with the creativity of your juggling, will stay in our memories for a long time to come.
At one point when our program got off track, your comedic presence saved the day and became an integral part of the program, as you were able to provide excellent entertainment at a time to come.
I would recommend your presentation with the highest ratings to any organization.

Your program was funny and energizing and uplifting-yet also intellectually challenging- and really brought home the importance of thinking outside the box- BIG TIME! Our agents and managers really appreciated you doing your homework and customizing so much of what you did just for us. Your inside jokes combined with your knack for illustrating them with terrific juggling tricks totally hit the mark!
I definitely believe the way you mix words and movement together is what sets you apart from other speakers. In addition to making it more fun and entertaining, your colorful juggling is such a strong visual- it's a great added incentive for people to focus and listen even more intently than they would have normally. And it's a good thing our people did because several of them told me afterwards that they took home a lot of useful points about the power of persistence and how important good humor is in building positive communication and energizing team spirit.
If anyone is looking for a dynamic presentation with just the right blend of comedy and content, I'd be delighted to recommend your unique services. I know I'll be steering them in the right direction!
It was a pleasure having you return as a speaker for NEQC's 55th Conference this year.
Your program was very well received and you were again the top rated speaker at the conference. This says a lot about your talent and versatility to be the highest ranked speaker, two conferences in a row, especially since you presented two different topics!
Your luncheon presentation showed a keen insight into our current challenges and integrated your trademark juggling and humor with a powerful message about the role innovative thinking plays in transforming adversity into opportunity. The program was very informative, and your unique presentation styles kept the audience involved and attentive.
Congratulations on a great job and we look forward to working with you again.
