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!

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!
