"Robyn was a home-run for our leadership conference of 1,500 attendees. She is high-energy, engaging, inspiring, and does a great job connecting the story of adventure racing and teamwork to leadership in the business world. We received great feedback from our participants, and are very happy to have found Robyn. I would highly recommend her for any size event!"

CEO, Momentum

"Listening to speakers like you who can share your experience through adversity is especially important; thank you for spending time with Allstate's leadership team earlier this month. Your message of total team work – synergy, commitment, empathy and mutual respect – is powerful. Allstate leaders might not be climbing mountains or bicycling through a rain forest but we are competing every day to take care of our customers and strengthen communities so that we deliver the Good Hands promise far into the future. Your stories remind us that no matter what challenge we face, we can overcome it by working together. "

Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, Allstate

"Robyn's message for our company was perfect. The presentation felt custom-made for us and left everyone ready to help each other win! Everyone loved her energy level and her thought-provoking stories connected with our employees. I have witnessed many members of our team referencing quotes from her talk, and I expect we will incorporate many of them into our company culture. Having high-performing teams is critical to our success, and Robyn's inspirational message has undoubtedly made our teams stronger."

“One word, PHENOMENAL! Robyn had the audience’s attention from the moment she stepped out on stage. The Adventure Racing stories she shared were not short of incredible and showed the epitome of TEAMWORK. I have no doubt that every single person at the conference walked away with a new perspective and appreciation of what TEAM really means. You rocked it!!”

"Robyn, I had the pleasure of hearing you speak today at Microsoft and I have to tell you how you left me inspired and with a renewed faith in a different way to think about teamwork. I have always valued working in a team but you gave me some great insights into new ways of thinking and while I cannot say I have ever been an Adventure Racer – in fact, I couldn’t be further from it….today I left feeling as though I AM an adventure racer each and every day in my role."

Vice President of Conference and Events, Travel Leaders Group

"I thought yours was one of the best, if not the best, keynote session I've seen in over two decades at my company. ... you did your homework on us and our event; intensive homework, way beyond just Googling us. You spoke as an insider! You didn't just bring us into your world, you integrated both our worlds, your examples were specific, but your message and lessons were universal, and I found myself more and more impressed as the talk went on."
