Request rates and availability
In 2006, I broke both ankles in an accident at an indoor climbing gym, landing me in a wheelchair. This sparked a downward spiral to absolute rock bottom.
My story follows my descent into the darkest depths of depression and debt as I lost everything, including my will to live.
My story then takes the audience through the decisions and steps I took to turn my life around and begin an impossible journey to rebuild a life worth living for.
In 928 days, I managed to push myself a little more each day until I was able to realise a teenage dream and summit the highest mountain in the world.
I have had the pleasure of sharing my story with over 80 000, in 12 countries, on 5 continents and my book Mind Over Mountain has sold over 4000 copies globally.
"THE FEEDBACK WAS OUTSTANDING!"
Alexander Forbes was proud to host our Top 50 Senior Leadership Conference in September 2018. We researched several speakers and came across Robby’s story, and wow what an amazing story at that!
We needed to find someone who would grab our audience and take them on a journey that not only spoke to their careers but impacted them on a personal level as well. Robby is real, interactive, inspirational, fearless and has no filters when sharing the true challenges he faced on a daily basis. Kudos to Robby for helping us set the stage for a remarkable conference.
