TED Style Speaking Master Class - Free video series!
Robin is a trainer at Ginger, a speech writer and delivery coach and fully qualified life coach. He also co-hosts and helps prepare performers for a storytelling event in central London called the Story Party.
Ever since he listened, entranced, to his grandmother’s stories as a little boy, storytelling has been his passion. When he entered the world of work it also became his career, first in advertising and then in TV.
In 2004 Robin began to tell his own stories. He followed his muse to write a book, The Mango Orchard, which was published in several languages, to critical acclaim around the world. Following the success of the book he was commissioned to write a film screenplay, worked in journalism and began working with other writers to help them tell their stories.
The idea for Wedding Speech Guru came to Robin – who’s been best man himself five times – when a best man asked for his help the night before a friend’s wedding. He discovered that he loved helping people find their stories and make speeches that they never believed they’d be capable of.
Core to all Robin’s work, whether training groups or individuals, is the belief that everyone has a story to tell, and the capability to tell it brilliantly. He has a knack of enabling speakers to find “the truth” of their message.
Random fact about Robin: he was once cast as a drug smuggler in a Bollywood feature film.
