"Robert Swan has been a consistent and clear favourite among our corporate clients for their leadership meetings.  His tale of personal leadership, teamwork is accompanied by simple and memorable visuals and anecdotes from his own many adventures.  As a speaker bureau we know that we can count on him to take the client's brief and work it into his story in a compelling and inspirational way.  And he's just great fun to work with on a personal level.  I highly recommend him."

"As the founder of the Kellogg Innovation Network (KIN) at the Kellogg School of Management, I’ve seen hundreds of speakers at events worldwide.  In all of my travels, I have not seen or worked with a speaker with more authenticity, energy and ethical power than Robert Swan.  I’ve hired Robert twice for our global corporate clients, and Robert has graciously provided his magic for our University on a number of occasions.  If you’re looking for depth and insight followed by a standing ovation, hire Robert Swan."

"Robert Swan spoke at the inaugural PINC conference in Sarasota, FL.  His presentation electrified the audience -- Rob has the unique ability to tell his story in a compelling, humorous, and emotional way that draws people in and keeps them highly engaged. The information he shares about the environment is alarming and is clearly meant to give everyone pause, yet he also leaves them with a sense of hope and enthusiasm for what can be done.  The standing ovation is well deserved and really capped off our day perfectly!"
Nelleke van Lindonk, Director of the PINC Conferences
