Anyone that has met Robin will have heard him say that he is a ‘behaviorist at heart’. He genuinely cares not only about what people learn, but more importantly what people DO with what they learn. His style of teaching is very practical and hands on allowing you to engage in a meaningful, provocative and memorable experience. 

Robin believes that deep down, everybody wants to excel and that people need to be challenged before they will change. His direct ‘feet on the ground’ approach and deliberate use of accelerated learning techniques are central to his success as a professional business consultant.

When you engage with Robin you become so much more than a client. Robin is committed to helping you change your inner attitude so that you can change your outer life. You can expect to be challenged both professionally and personally and Robin will be there to encourage you throughout your journey.

Robin is a specialist in his industry with over 30 years’ experience and is considered one of New Zealand’s foremost Adult Educators. He has worked with many high profile companies across New Zealand and around the world. He has extensive knowledge and experience in management training, skills based employee development, professional development and business coaching/mentoring programmes. In addition to his extensive experience, Robin holds a National Certificate in Business Studies, a Diploma in Adult Teaching and a Certificate in Training and Development. He is a senior consultant for the NZ Institute of Management (NZIM) South Island wide and an accredited 4QL educator with the Wilf Jarvis Foundation.

Outside of work, Robin is a devoted husband, father and granddad.  He would best describe himself as 'young at heart'. He is a passionate collector so be sure to ask to see the infamous Batman collection if you haven't already. An honest Kiwi bloke, he loves mucking about in his shed - building, creating, and unwinding from his busy working days. Robin also looks forward to working on several books in the coming years to channel and share his lifetime of knowledge and learning.

Rebekah is passionate about helping others develop a greater awareness and gain access to what they need to enhance their personal wellbeing both at work and at home. After completing post-graduate study in Organisational Psychology at the University of Canterbury, she started her career with OPRA Psychology Group where she developed a special interest in psychometrics, particularly their use in the role of leadership development. She has worked with leaders and organisations in this capacity for over ten years and is thrilled to be able to deliver specialist services in corporate wellbeing.

Rebekah truly aspires to practice what she preaches and enjoys spending time doing things that she knows enhance her own wellbeing (and not just because there is good scientific evidence to back it up!). She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, yoga, family holidays, reading and walking with friends. She is also actively involved in her children’s school community and sporting interests.

Rebekah is a Registered Psychologist with the New Zealand Psychologists Board. She is accredited in the use of a number of psychometric assessment tools, the Global Leadership Wellbeing Survey (GLWS), the MTQ Plus Assessment Tool, and is also a member of the New Zealand Association of Positive Psychology.
