Through inspiring business, sporting and life stories and interaction, Rob shares what :

the great champions know, do and do not do to achieve sustained success and significance. 

SEVEN POWERFUL GAME- CHANGERS – shared to power up any team – turnaround any team:

  • Champions know that “Mindset matters most”

– Your best made plans will prove meaningless unless you have the right mindset.

  • Champions know what it takes to” Step inside Great’

– Consistent winning comes from buidling a culture of great. Great sets the stretch,  the commitment and the tone.

  • Champions know that “Branding is Everything”

– Branding is a champion’s compass in good times – and scaffolding in challenging times.

  • Champions know how to “Conquer – never Fight”

– Conquering means coming from a position of strength – never coming from a position of weakness.

  • Champions know that “The Power lies in the Peloton”

– They optimally manage their finite energy levels.

  • Champions know “No Health means No Wealth”

– Physical, chemical and emotional energies either fill or drain the very same human energy well.

  • Champions know  “Live the Journey – don’t chase the Game  “

– Success is found in the process – not the result.
