Talk Topics

Solutions for talent retention and employee engagement.

Employee engagement in some sectors is at an all time low and resignations at an all time high.  Traditional HR solutions of compensation and benefits are failing miserably to turn things around. Keeping people happy is paramount yet most of us don’t understand the real sources of our own happiness or any one else’s. Rob's keynote speeches and workshops focused on the science of human happiness will help you understand what really works to increase engagement and reduce resignations and how happy employees increase profitability. The presentation is both informational and motivational as Rob interweaves stories and lessons from sailing with both billionaires and barefoot villagers with actionable strategies so the audience leaves with skills to increase their own happiness and help others find happier lives as well. 

Keynotes and workshops on Executive Resilience.

Rob and his wife were  once lost in a winter blizzard for 5 days and given up for dead. Their improbable story of survival was international news and prompted a call from the President of the United States.  The lessons from that experience and Rob's later years crossing oceans in a small sailboat give Rob's audiences far more than an academic understanding of resilience.  Overcoming adversity in life or business requires specific training and few are more qualified than Rob to pass on that knowledge.  

It seems every executive training today emphasizes resilience.  Unfortunately using the buzz word or an academic description of resilience bears little resemblance to the personal turmoil that accompanies situations requiring resilience.  If you want to actually develop this skill, not just give it lip service,  it requires learning it from  someone who has truly demonstrated resilience time after time after time.

Full Day workshop with monthly follow-up
Rob's signature program- A Happier You NOW! 

Helvetica Light is an easy-to-read font, with tall and narrow letters, that works well on almost every site.

This full day workshop with monthly followup delivers results that organizations are looking for.  Participants learn the sources of deep and long lasting happiness and how to create that for themselves and those around them.  A detailed 9-point framework helps each individual gain insight into what will work best for them and then implement those specific strategies. Each person leaves with a compelling list of their own career and personal goals, a set of neuro-linguistic programming techniques to motivate them to achieve their goals and strategies to break through any fear standing between them and their goals.  Managers and teams get invested in each others goals and dreams which builds trust and teamwork.  The result is happier people who think differently and see the world differently.  The outcome is more engagement, greater profitability, reduced resignations and your employees becoming your most passionate recruiters. 

Organizations invest heavily on employee happiness.
All those investments are multiplied 10X by simply teaching your employees
how to be better at being happy. 

You’ve made it- Now what?
Balancing business success with personal fulfillment.
Private Coaching

As a filmmaker Rob worked with top executives from numerous Fortune 500 companies as well as successful entrepreneurs in many industries. His involvement filming the America’s Cup and other high end yacht races put Rob side by side with the millionaires and billionaires who pursue those pastimes.

Many had reached pinnacles of business success and were wondering what was next. Rob’s own journey included business struggles, then early retirement and eventually starting a scholarship program that has so far sent 29 kids though college. That journey and the insights that presented themselves while sailing around the world have given Rob shareable strategies to guide others to personal fulfillment equal to their business success.

"The experience of our lives is not what happens to us, but how we think about what happens to us. And happy people think differently."

I had the pleasure of working with Rob Dubin on a presentation. Rob has an engaging personality and is a great public speaker. He is passionate about the topics he speaks about, and really connected with the audience. I walked away feeling inspired, and if comments after the show were any indication, so did most of the attendees. Throughout the planning process, Rob was very easy to work with, and had many good ideas about how to run the event. Along the way, he was conscious of promoting my business and connecting the audience to the sponsors and message of the event. I hope to work with Rob on future events!

We've asked Rob to help us with our film festivals and events year after year because he is a pleasure to work with. The way he speaks about his career experiences and time spent traveling the world inspires audiences, and he always adds something unique whether it’s drawing upon his vast network, or his understanding of events and audiences.

We were fortunate enough to host Rob Dubin as a speaker at our venue and his engaging talk captured the attention of everyone in the room from start to finish.  He connected with the audience in a way that gave great insights on life with humility and humor.  His stories were inspiring and grounded in simple truths that he shared from his years of adventuring across the globe.  

Leading up to the speaking event, Rob helped market the event through the local radio station and social media.  He was a pleasure to work with every step of the way!"

I spent a wonderful evening listening to Rob Dubin’s “9 Insights for an Extraordinary Life”. I have learned that mountaineers and sailors have gained a certain centeredness and life experience that are worth sharing. Rob is both, and his presentation based on his years on the open sea with his wife is full of life lessons that you may have heard before, but presented here in an entertaining and impactful way that help set them in the mind. Heartily recommended!

Rob's presentation "9 Principles for an extraordinary life" was informative and motivational. His engaging storytelling delivered his lessons taken from his own world wide ranging experiences. Sure to leave participants with renewed motivation to get out and reach for their own best self. I would highly recommend Rob as a speaker for any event or conference.

It was such a stirring presentation that we wound up pondering the issues you raised in animated conversation for a couple of hours afterwards. So we appreciate you and, I should mention, other folks there clearly enjoyed it as well. Just wanted to offer a belated thanks!
