The path of life is filled with bumps, potholes and detours. Still Walking is a powerful keynote based on real-life examples that challenges people to assess their obstacles, limitations and strengths on a personal and professional level. It’s a reminder that our focus determines our success. In Still Walking, Rob uses his personal journey of a paralyzing injury to get to the heart of the “Human Condition*” and move audiences to achieve greatness by maximizing their abilities.
Takeaway message: No one ever achieved anything amazing by focusing on what they can’t do!
Power of One
The things we do and say every day have an impact on those around us. The Power of One shares real life examples and practical strategies for being a positive influence regardless of our position or the organization we represent. The actions we choose have the potential to change the customer experience as well as the culture of the organization. It’s the Power of One and it starts with you.
Key Takeaway: My impact on my surroundings is not neutral, I’m either a positive 1 or a negative 1.
Open a Window (Because the Door Got Slammed in Your Face!)
“I’m not interested, go away!” How many times have you heard that. We all face obstacles outside of our control. The key is what we do next! In “Opening a Window”, Rob looks at how to keep going when the initial response is, “No!” He draws from his own experiences facing discrimination, limited opportunities, stigma and misunderstanding, on top of his physical limitations. If the door of opportunity is closed, let’s “Open a Window!”
Takeaway Message: Success comes from persistence in finding creative solutions to the obstacles we encounter.
