Rob Paylor Reviews

Meredith Batterham

Review: Robert is simply wonderful to work with and listen to. He’s the type of guy who makes you feel like you’ve known him your whole life – chatting with a friend type of feel. He does such a great job of inspiring others and making sure he can relate to anything anyone has going on at any given moment. He truly reminds you of how much there is to be thankful for each and every day. He left our team in awe, and everyone walked away with a more positive outlook on life and their current day-to-day struggles.

Review: Inspiring, moving, and brilliant. Those are just three of the words used to describe Rob Paylor’s moving keynote delivered as a fireside chat at our company virtual company kickoff. So moving were his words around “mindset”, “the mental diet”, “gratitude”, and “resiliency” that it moved me, the CEO of the company, to tears during the interview. His story as a top collegiate championship athlete paralyzed during a game, along with the years of hard daily work to defy the doctor’s predictions is one that will move any employee, especially sales team members. HIs gentle giant spirit, manner of speech, perfect pauses, modulation, the tone was the icing on the cake. As a professional keynote speaker myself, I can say, he is one of the best speakers I have had the pleasure of seeing on stage. A key takeaway for me was his practice of a clean mental diet. If you want to feel inspired to push yourself and employees to their fullest, contact Rob Paylor.

Review: Robert has told his story many times, but not once during my event did he seem rehearsed or insincere. In fact, Robert was so engaged and invested in the audience he voluntarily stayed beyond his allotted time to answer questions and share advice. From the pre-planning stages to the event itself, Robert's communication, generosity, energy, and kindness far exceeded all of my expectations. If you need a speaker who is amazing to work with and who cares about your audience as much as you do, I highly recommend booking Robert.
