Rob always thought he would become a professional musician, and he was a talented trumpet player. But in college he changed his major from music to psychology because he loves to learn how people think, behave, and decide. Upon graduation he became a college recruiter where he found he had a talent for presenting, and later for coaching others to present. Today Rob fuels his passion for coaching by fusing behavioral economics and social psychology with programs that help people make effective presentations. Always learning, he continues to bring fresh perspectives to his training and coaching. His greatest reward is when someone says "Rob, that was one of the most challenging programs I've ever experienced, and it was also one of the very BEST!" It takes a certain type of coach to pull that off and Rob is that kind of person! Get to know Rob and you'll likely see what others have experienced in presentation skills training!
He and his wife live in the Sarasota, Florida area.
Reading is where Rob finds his inspiration. Books provide deep thinking with new perspectives that fuel his programs. Go-to books include: The 7 Habits by Covey, Thinking Fast and Slow by Kahneman, Influence by Cialdini, The Click Moment by Johansson, and any book by the Heath brothers, Malcolm Gladwell, or Daniel Pink. Oh, he also loves podcasts!! So much to learn!
Rob is currently studying neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) and the impact they have on influence during a presentation. These have common names like Serotonin and Adrenaline, but most of us are not sure of which does what and how it matters to decision making. Rob's question is, where does "the heart" fit in the mix? More to come!
Rob launched his consulting practice AlwaysStrategic LLC in Phoenix in 2020. AlwaysStrategic is focused on sales strategy, sales approach, and sales presentations. AlwaysPresenting takes his long history of working with internal presenters and makes programs available to you!
