The way Rob interacted with our team of 350 staff was tremendous. You could have heard a pin drop from the time he walked on stage until his closing. The feedback post his presentation has been first rate . . . humorous, great message, entertaining, real . . . all very positive. We really enjoyed his involvement.
Rob immediately hit the ground running, capturing and holding the group's attention from start to finish . . . not bad considering the broad demographic in the room. Rob was effectively able to deliver his address drawing in parallels to our market with a blend of humour and his own inspiring experiences.
Our entire team loved Rob's Streetwise Leadership workshop. It was an invaluable reminder to all of our managers to constantly re-evaluate their attitude and behaviours and most importantly to avoid complacency.
-The WorkPac Group
Redenbach’s workshop was a first-class introduction on how to manage both organisational and personal security and has helped our organisation identify threats and manage risk more effectively. Highly recommend.
Rob is one of those few presenters who can entertain, inspire and educate an audience . . . simultaneously!
The passion, commitment and real-life experiences Rob outlined can be directly incorporated into our business to make a DIFFERENCE!
-Pioneer Construction Material Pty Ltd.
The team found the content interesting, enjoyable, and most importantly, valuable. Most were surprised by how (as salespeople) they could relate to, and gain value from, something a ‘trained killer’ had to say! If anyone is looking for a keynote presentation which has valuable messages, I would not hesitate to recommend you.

Rob Redenbach's presentation was by far one of the more inspiring and impactful messages delivered to our team in a very long time. Rob’s opening immediately caught the attention of our 120 delegation and with ease he successfully opened the door to his world. His message delivered great focus on the importance of thinking out side the square, emphasising the importance of adjusting, adapting and achieving our goals and missions through thinking differently and working smarter. Rob's interaction with delegates intensified his presentation, making the experience real. His personable nature and professionalism is definitely a key element to making his presentation memorable and meaningful. Thanks Rob for a job well done – and for opening our eyes to the bigger picture!
