In detail

Robert left school with one O- level and struggled to fit in - his early careers usually ending in failure. He was always the outsider - whether from his upbringing (as a townie "marooned" in the countryside) or from being the deep-thinker among the deal-junkies of investment banking. Yet Kelsey found redemption in entrepreneurship - giving his life meaning and offering him the philosophical insight that underpins his writing. His books on the insecurities that made him such an ineffective young adult 'What's Stopping You?' 'What's Stopping You Being More Confident'? and 'Get Things Done', have become international bestsellers. Robert tackles what holds people back - whether it's procrastination, fear of failure, poor confidence or feelings of being an outsider.

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's 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.
