Sales, Sales Management & Motivation

Robin Daubeny is a highly regarded professional speaker in Australia who delivers presentations that entertain, educate and motivate.  Attendees take away proven, positive self-help ideas that can change performance, behaviour and life in general. 

Robin is also a highly successful business and sportsman. In 2007, he was appointed as a consultant at the Australian Institute of Sport where he works with elite athletes helping to improve performance and helping them to be successful in other areas when their sporting career finishes.

During his twenty-five career with National Mutual / AXA Robin established himself as a legend in the financial services industry.  He established records in sales and sales management that are unlikely to be broken.  He started three sales teams from scratch and took over two poorly performing teams and led each team to be the top in Australia.

Robin Daubeny won National Mutual's prestigious 'Agency Manager of the Year' award eight times - the only person to win the award more than once.  In 1992 he was recognised as the top insurance Sales Manager in Australasia.

As an athlete Robin is a former Australian Professional Cycling Champion and for fourteen years was recognised as one of the top professional cyclists in Australia. Robin was an honorary ambassador at World Expo 88 and is an Australia Day Ambassador. In November 2008 he was recognised as one of the top five business speakers in Australia.

In 1984 Robin was approached by a young VFL footballer, Mark Jackson, who was seeking help and guidance.  Robin became Mark's manager and acted in this role for twenty years.  Between them they pioneered the now massive VFL / AFL player manager business.  Among their many successes were the Energizer Battery commercials where Mark's catch phrase "Oi" became recognised throughout the world.

Robin also managed Australia's greatest track cyclist Danny Clark and World Boxing Champion - Barry Michael.  Robin has also worked as a motivational adviser for the Australian team at the World Championships. 

Robin has assisted many sporting clubs to improve performance including several AFL clubs.  In 1997 Robin was called in by the St. Kilda AFL team after the team had lost eleven games straight.  With Robin's help the team won fifteen out of the next seventeen games and played off in the Grand Final.

Robin has been a keenly sought after speaker for over twenty five years and has spoken in many countries throughout the world.  In 2004 Robin was invited to speak at the world's largest sales convention in Los Angeles, with 6,000 attendees from 64 nations.  Robin is only the fourth Australian to be invited.  He has spoken at conventions with the likes of Colin Powell and Richard Branson.
