Rob began his own business, after working with the late David Rattray on the Anglo Zulu battlefields, where Rob honed his unique talent for storytelling. Rob’s ability to bring the drama of these battlefields to life ensured that he rapidly began to establish himself as a world-class orator. Rob believes there are powerful lessons to be learnt from the remarkable stories of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift, which resonate especially with audiences today. Rob also presents on Amundsen, Scott and Shackleton.
Always confident with people, Rob thrives on the challenge and reward of entertaining audiences in the theatres of their imagination and transporting them via the power of a story well told.
Rob’ Keynote Speech is:
‘Isandlwana : Epic of human struggle and endeavour’
Rob will highlight various aspects of this incredible battle that took place in 1879. His long association with Zulu people and their oral history has brought him to this point in life and he feels that the human stories will resonate strongly with the audience.
Over a 13 year speaking career, I have successfully presented the stories of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift along with early Antarctic exploration to thousands of audiences across South Africa and the United Kingdom. I speak largely about history and the lessons that can be learnt from our past.
What is the presentation about?
For business audiences my subject matter relates to the 21st century and lessons that can be learnt from an amazing piece of South African or Antarctic history. Particularly thought-provoking (without the aid of PowerPoint) by resonating in the theatre of the audience’s imagination as a powerful story well told.
