Robert Kelsey

Expert on Self Motivation & Personal Success

Robert Kelsey is the author of the best selling What's Stopping You? a book on understanding, accepting and navigating the fears and insecurities that prevent otherwise intelligent people from making strong progress in their careers. Robert identifies fear of failure as a mass condition in the modern world affecting millions of people, many unaware they have the condition. He also explores the condition from an organisational level - often from the top down or due to external pressures.

In detail

Robert is a speaker and columnist on conditions such as low self-esteem or fear of failure - both at a personal and organisational level. He is also an entrepreneur and spent most of the 1990s as a corporate banker, although began his career in financial journalism. He therefore recognises both individual and organisation pressures. His book What's Stopping You? came out in May 2011 and became an instant hit in both the self-help and business genres, achieving that rare cross-over between the two.

What he offers you

Robert cites his own background - his academic failures, his tortured career paths and his difficulties in dealing with organisational hierarchies as well he also points the way ahead - not by eradicating the fears but by recognising when we are being driven by fear, and by planning a future that navigates beyond our insecurities.

How he presents

Robert takes us on a personal journey using both his own experiences and the evidence from psychologists as self-help writers. The style is witty, engaging, insightful, personal and warm. His presentations can be an emotional roller-coaster, but they are also highly-enlightening and very practical.


He presents in English.
