Robert is a passionate speaker on topics such as
- Entrepreneurship
- Following your dreams
- Making things happen
- Social media and community building (online)
- Creating a relationship between online activity and the 'real world'
- Staying focused
- Having faith (that you can achieve your dream)
- ‘Doing it’ and not letting people say you can’t

As well as running Got To Get Out, until recently Robert was a full time Director at Auckland University of Technology. He also has raised funds and awareness for the Mental Health Foundation of NZ and The Himalayan Trust
