Speaker Profile

About Robert Kelsey

During a ten year period, Robert Kelsey read as many self-books as he could get his hands on in the hope of being able to find the answer to his low self-esteem, the cause of his fear of failure

When reading, he discovered that these so called self-help books all lacked certain things; honesty and programmes for progress

Speaking Topics

  • Fear of failure: understanding what holds us back, how to accept who we are and how to navigate the barriers we throw in our path
  • Achievement: developing high achievement motivation in individuals and teams by avoiding the pitfalls of our fears and insecurities
  • Embracing failure: reframing failure and how to use failure to drive success (every successful person does it!)
  • Execution: setting goals, calculating a strategy and executing tactics. A clear framework for progress
  • Goal-setting: how to set long-term goals that are based on our true-values and connect to our immediate actions
  • Self-esteem: explaining low self-esteem and reframing its traits and consequences
  • Leadership: strong leadership requires the opposite traits to achieving seniority. This is about true leadership in the modern workplace
  • Managing people: how to cope with difficult people, whether they are your senior, subordinate or colleague
  • Entrepreneurship: challenging the false image of the entrepreneur and looking at the real requirements for going it alone
  • Starting a business: the motives for starting a business, and the process of taking those first steps towards developing a growing and sustainable business, as well as the steps to avoid
