Finish the Sentence

Technology stitches our world together, even as uncertainty pulls us apart at the seams. It’s too easy to forget just how similar we all are, and how every voice has something to say. Robin once asked thousands of people from every conceivable background, to answer the same three questions. Shared along with his own unique background, the results are poignant, funny, and thought-provoking, shining a much-needed light on universal passions and challenges.

Breaking Boundaries

Robin explores his unlikely odds of one becoming an international jet-setting explorer, and what it takes to achieve any big, hairy audacious goal. He also delves into the value of thinking (and sometimes failing) big, and the crucial role of taking on projects with the right intention.?
Robin gave a virtual presentation to our Risk Advisory team and he truly ticked off all the boxes. He cleverly customized his key messages, thought-provoking ideas and practical takeaways while drifting in and out of jaw-dropping adventures, ensuring everyone was fully engaged. Robin’s stunning images and enthusiastic personality brought a super energy to the afternoon, and I highly recommend him to any company looking to inspire, motivate and mobilize their people. Deloitte

We are all looking to share different and unique experiences with our clients and Robin’s presentation hit the mark. He was generous with his time and the virtual event was a big success.
