What people have said about Robert's speaking -

Graeme Nicholls – Accelerated Business School for Entrepreneurs

“What can I say!! You ‘brained’ them last Wednesday night. As an audience, this alumni from the Accelerated School for Entrepreneurs heard some very good speakers over the years. One could almost say they’ve heard it all. But they hadn’t heard from you before, and you gave them a whole new experience.”

“I have had the absolute pleasure of attending numerous Robert Elrington’s speaking seminars over the past 15 years. Each time they leave me feeling inspired, humbled, and energized. I have engaged Rob to work with my team on more than one occasion, resulting in a supercharged sale team that smashes targets.”

I have conducted many training, communications and development courses over a 15 year period and find the content and execution of Roberts courses to be the most effective and productive. It has been a very worthwhile investment that has already paid for itself and will, I know, continue to show results well into the future.

I was inspired by the presentation that you made at the SWAP breakfast last year and without knowing anything about you at that stage, I knew that I had a great deal to learn from you. You “walk your talk” I just want to thank you, Robert, for the last few months and to say that my life has undergone a tremendous change.

I wanted to take the time to write to you and thank you for the course Effective Retailing Made Simple, which you have implemented with our retailers at Harbourside. We have one attendee report at 27% increase already, and substantial increases with other retailers as well. The most pleasing aspect in the positive change in attitude of our retailers

“Thank you, Robert, for your speech to our national conference last week. I have never seen our group so motivated, I have never seen such an outstanding reaction – our sales people are still coming to me saying it was the most inspiring profession speaker they have ever heard – and they have heard many!

Thank you, Robert.”



Robert Elrington is the consummate sales and motivation trainer. He has also led an extraordinarily interesting life. Combine these two factors with an outstanding ability to speak in front of an audience, and you have the ingredients for a guest speaker which will inspire, motivate, and challenge your audience. His talks will make you cry, make you laugh, and teach you some valuable new ways of thinking.

Roberts communication skills are so finely honed, that by following his own standard sales techniques, he made a personal appointment with one of the most influential and closely guarded media men in the world – from a cold call!

“Thank you very much for coming to see me yesterday with your colleagues. I greatly admired your enthusiastic and honest approach”
