WANT TO ADD “WOW” TO YOUR EVENT?

Think adventure: unpredictable weather, fearsome terrain, wild animals… great opportunity.

Think business: volatile markets, unpredictable competition, disruptive IT… great opportunity.

Adventure and business have much in common: great uncertainty, high pressure, high stakes, great opportunities. To thrive in such a world, research has shown that it is our attitudes, mindsets and principles that make the difference, even more than our IQ or qualifications.

In his speeches, Rob shares thrilling stories about travelling 80,000km by bicycle and on foot, carrying audiences from the tundra of Siberia, to the passes of Afghanistan, to the deserts of China. On these journeys he has encountered both success and setback, but more than just telling the stories, Rob also weaves in powerful reflections and audience-participation activities about the attitudes, mindsets and principles that helped him to overcome the fears, persevere past the obstacles, and thrive amid the uncertainty.

National Geographic have made two TV series about Rob’s self-filmed adventures, he is the author of two books, and his speeches have been acclaimed by tens of thousands around the world.

rob’s talks

The following two types of session are most popular with our clients:

Rob Lilwall Keynote Speech of 30-60 minutes are an ideal fit for conferences, town halls and offsites where, alongside industry experts and company updates, you are looking for an out-of-the-box story to add value and give “wow” to the event, something that the audience will talk about afterwards, and which will provoke and inspire a positive change in attitudes and habits.

Rob Lilwall Executive Masterclass Workshops are ideal for internal talent development programmes where, to supplement internal training, you are looking for vulnerable, memorable stories and personal takeaways. The Masterclasses work well with 10 to 40 people, can last up to three hours, and include more activities, conversation and application.

Specific messages include:

  • Thrive Amid Change

    Life on an expedition is full of change and uncertainty: un-bridged rivers, broken equipment, blocked roads. In business, the uncertainty and changes are different, but the mindset needed is the same.

  • Cultivate Resilience

    Resilience is the ability to bounce back after a tough experience, instead of burning out or giving up. Rob explains the importance of grit, good self-care, clear goals, and developing a growth mindset.

  • Turst & Collaborate

    Although Rob has often been alone on his expeditions, he could never have made it on his own. Rob illustrates the importance of networking, working together, and seeking good advice.

  • Achieve Great Goals

    Whether it’s completing a challenging expedition or finishing a tough work project, having the right goal-setting strategy greatly increases our chances of success.

  • Take Good Risks

    Taking the right risks is essential for progress - in the office, and in the wild lands. Rob reflects on both how to help ourselves to take calculated risks, as well as why it is worthwhile to do so.

  • Grow Self-Discipline

    Successful people make a habit of doing things that unsuccessful people make a habit of not doing. A key aspect of expeditions is forming great habits in both the small and the big.

  • Be More Positive

    All situations are open to interpretation, and we can choose what we focus on – the positive or the negative. When we focus on the positive, we perform better.

  • Face False Fears

    Fear can paralyse us or cause us to make bad decisions. Rob encourages us to ask “what’s the worst that can happen”, illustrates how many fears are false, and explains how we can learn to face them.
