Speaker Coach & Producer
In the 2000's, Robin stepped away from the timely demand of television to work in the speaking industry. During that time he was a sought after performance & media marketing expert who coached over 100 speakers in platform skills, marketing, and/or produced their speaker demo videos. Some of those clients are the top names in the National Speakers Association (NSA) including Hall of Fame Speakers… Vince Poscente, Mark Sanborn, Joe Calloway, Randy Pennington, Victoria Labalme, Amanda Gore, Dr. Janet Lapp, Karyn Buxman, LaDonna Gatlin, Connie Podesta, Roxanne Emmerich, Phillip Van Hooser, and George Walther to name a few. Robin soon found himself getting requests to speak to a number of state chapters of NSA, on how to Stand Out & Be A RockStar Speaker.
Robin's coaching clients like to call him “The Simon Cowell of the Speaking Industry” because he tells it like it is with truth, accuracy, and real-world expertise for speakers who want to be a success in the world of professional speakers. His expertise in performance & entertainment helps move them from average to awesome to rockstar.
Robin began speaking professionally in 2007. After coaching and producing so many of the top speakers within the NSA, he began getting requests to present his “entertainment industry’s” perspective on business growth to organizations & associations worldwide. He’s been fortunate to serves as the Keynote Speaker at large events for event planners who want to offer their attendees an exciting, entertaining, yet relevant speaker with real-world success strategies on how to stand out from the competition in their marketing, customer service, and business growth.
He served on the faculty at the NSA University’s Ultimate Keynote Workshop in Marco Island, FL and presented programs for the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers & The National Speakers Association annual conventions (along with many state chapters). He was featured on the main stage in the 2008 “NSA Rocks” National Speakers Association Convention hosting Kevin Cronin (REO Speedwagon), Simon Kirke (Bad Company), and David Fishof (Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp), on “What A Speaker Can Learn From A Rock Star!” Many attendees said his session was, “One of the best programs ever presented at an NSA event.”
About 5 years ago Robin was called back into the field of television to co-develop and produce two tv and one web series.
The first was London Broadcasting Company's hit television show, Troubadour TX -- a 22-episode docu-reality series based on Texas singer-songwriters following their dreams to make it in the music business. It aired nationwide each weekend for 3 years to over 40 million households on The CW Network. The series won 17 Telly Awards for Outstanding Production in the Docu-Reality & Music Categories.
The other two were projects in the outdoor industry where Robin served as Executive Producer & Director for a 26-Live Event Sports series for FOX Sports & WFN.
