It has been a long hard road since I arrived back home five months ago. Time has gone at times too slowly, and at times too quickly. In any case, I am now at a stage where I am feeling comfortable about the prospect of speaking to audiences about my journey. It is an exciting prospect speaking to groups about the journey; the transferrable principles that I learned on the road about having clear goals, a supportive community, being open to change, creating opportunities, and having the courage to take steps towards one’s dreams are exciting topics that I really enjoy talking about.

If you or anyone you know would be keen for me to visit your group for an inspiring multi-media presentation, get a hold of me or my agent. Below is a brochure I have put together to give a better idea of what I can offer, and agent contact details.

It’s no secret that I am offering these talks at a small cost; I have debts to pay from the trip and am now a student again. But by all means, even if you are involved in an organisation that is not used to paying for guest speakers, do get a hold of me; I’m happy to work to your circumstances.


I am now offering some of my visual art from around the world for display and  purchase. If you own a cafe or corporate office that would benefit from some high quality photography from my collection hanging on its walls, then please email me your interest. I am finalising the photos to be available, and a browse-able online gallery will be available soon.

Very basically it would work something like this:

  1. You select which work(s) you would like to display.
  2. I send the requested works to you at no cost to you, along with a requested sale price.
  3. You display the work in your cafe/reception area/public place for free.
  4. If the work sells, the sale funds are transferred to me.

I’m putting this out there to guage interest, so do get a hold of me if you are even mildly interested.

Rob I am an amatuer photographer in my spare time and I have to say that your photos are outstanding. They are very vibrant and contemporary and would look very good hanging in a cafe/modern office or somewhere similar. I do hope you make some sales.

If you ever come to the UK to do some speaking I will be there. It's a bit of a long way from New Zealand though!
