Robert speaking at
The International Relational Thinking Conference
University of Cambridge
Engaging an audience and delivering insights you can use: Home, Work, Politics & Faith.
Robert is noted for translating his unique insights on relationships into a powerful, engaging and persuasive spoken message. He employs a combination of strategic vision, compelling facts, humor, and poignant story-telling that delivers an urgent wake-up call to address the relationship crisis we face. It is designed to leave no heart or brain – left or right – behind.
He has shared the platform at major conferences as keynote speaker with such notable CEOs as Bill Gates at Microsoft, Lew Platt at Hewlett Packard, and Dick Kovacevich at Wells Fargo. He has addressed audiences of up to 8,000 in the U.S., Canada, several Latin America countries, the UK, Spain, South Africa and Australia. CEOs have brought him in to speak to large employee and customer groups to inspire fresh perspective and renewed commitment to more productive relationships. He has also presented to large and small non-profit groups, churches, and schools on issues of relationship, homelessness, and community.
Robert, your keynote hit a home run for us last week at our Annual Conference and we are so grateful. You had great information and set the stage for our other speakers. You were terrific.

“Robert gave the last keynote of the 2019 conference. This is a challenging time to speak as folks are "saturated" and the ranks begin to thin. Robert's content was so compelling that the room was filled and the audience rapt. He's a delight to work with and in addition to being a terrific author, he delivers insightful, relevant material. In the words of one attendee, "timely and actionable ... really made us think."
