“Along with his wild stories, his insights into happiness, taking risks and engaging with different cultures was exactly what we needed.

Fidelity Investments

"Robin was a fantastic addition to our virtual conference. Robin’s presentation was captivating, engaging the audience with his incredible stories and enthusiasm. Not only that, but his messaging and tone were spot on – somehow being able to connect with the crowd at an appropriate level without being in the same room. We could not have been happier to have him part of our day."

Wellington-Altus Private Wealth Rod Mahrt Vice President

"Selecting Robin Esrock as our keynote for our annual conference was an inspired choice. His passion for travel reminded our hoteliers of why we do what we do. But the biggest benefit was his ability to connect with our people and inspire them to think about their goals. Robin left a lasting impression. After his talk and throughout the rest of our event, our attendees were all talking about the experience and each had a personal takeaway."

Coast Hotels

“Robin Esrock is a fantastic keynote speaker who is able to connect with the audience on personal level. An innate storyteller, Robin’s vast catalogue of travel experiences and life lessons are woven into his presentation and lead attendees on a journey. Multiple attendees cited Robin as being the best keynote from the conference. As an event organizer, I found Robin extremely flexible and down-to-earth to work with as our closing keynote speaker, who left our participants engaged, entertained, and inspired.”

University of Waterloo

“Robin enthralled his audience at the recent 29th Annual Vancouver Tourism Awards Gala Breakfast firstly because his ideas were innovative and experiential but mainly because his attitude was such that he was speaking to equals, not about his successes. He made the overriding philosophy inspirational and attainable. He truly made one feel he related to his audience.”

Vancouver Tourism Awards

"Robin’s talk took us through his life journey and lessons in an unbelievably inspiring, honest, informative and visually stimulating talk. He broke down all the boundaries we consistently face and provided real, digestible strategies to help us succeed in what we do - be it business or personal. He wraps executive coaching and leadership into one powerful presentation."

Electronic Arts Inc.

"As two organizations undergoing tremendous transformation under a single association, Robin was the perfect fit for our event. Robin was effectively able to relate his personal experiences with the importance of embracing change and seizing opportunities which resonated with our delegates. In short, Robin ticked all the boxes. He was engaging, entertaining, thought provoking and inspiring. I highly recommend him."

    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. 
    The optional breakout session asks teams to share their own answers to Robin’s three questions.

    ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE

    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.
