“I had the pleasure of meeting Rob at a leadership forum and was intrigues by his approach to leadership coaching and executive poise. As chair of the speaker committee for a conference that my firm recently held, I invited Rob to be our morning keynote. Rob exceeded our expectations and with an engaging and relevant message for our audience. We even surveyed our participants as a follow up to the event and Rob received rave reviews. Our audience members agreed that they were highly satisfied with their experience watching rob speak. Rob was a pleasure work with, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a dynamic speaker and coach.”
