Conference Speaking

One of the most important factors in the success of your conference is the motivational speaker you choose.

If your audience is involved with anything to do with productivity and efficiency (and most are!) – then you’ll have delighted audiences when you bring in motivational speaker¬†Robyn Pearce¬†to help your people.

Robyn’s practical message and empathy with her audience connects your people to their own issues – and shows them how to win their time challenges! Her “Getting A Grip On Time” message is exactly what your people need to get past the stress, clutter and pressure of daily work. It gives them a lift; it shows them simple alternatives. Like so much wisdom, it’s so easy to see and apply once it’s pointed out. And yet – people at all levels forget to take the time to seek out these great strategies.

And of course she does thorough pre-event research and customises the programme for your company, products and situation.

Robyn is recognised world-wide as one of the top experts in the field of Time Management.

Her dynamic, customised and compelling presentations involve the audience and engage their imagination. Give her people who seek to regain control of their lives and you’ll have audiences who walk away excited and motivated to change.

As well as over twenty one years specialising in the business of productivity and working with clients across the globe, she speaks from her experiences as a mother of six children who spent some years on social welfare after a marriage breakup, then a top selling but burnt-out real estate agent. (And those children have taken seriously the injunction to ‘go forth and multiply’ – there are now 15 grandchildren who fill every ‘spare’ minute.)

She’s made all the mistakes in the book – and survived! No other person can bring Robyn’s industry experience, knowledge, passion and unique and compelling stories to your conference room.

Getting A Grip On Time

Discover the best of the best from around the world in time management knowledge and research. Give your colleagues the chance to learn, laugh and be revitalised with a fresh perspective on how they can be more productive, have less stress, make more money, and spend more time with the activities and people they love to be with.

People have many diverse views and experiences of time management.

Many say, ‘Oh, I could do with some help in that area – but I can’t afford the time!’ It should be commonsense, but many people struggle with the way they use their time. It’s rarely taught in school or university (apart from brief mentions in tutorials on how to study). And yet the way we use our time, deal with our time challenges, focus, prioritise, plan, delegate and communicate is critical to success in all areas of our life.
The only thing consistent in life is that, from beneficiary to CEO, from shop-girl to supermodel, we all have the same 24 hours in a day. The major quality that separates outstandingly successful and happy people from stressed and struggling souls is the way they make choices in life – hour by hour and day by day.

Robyn Pearce has been down the road of stress, burnout and exhaustion. For years she struggled with her own time habits. The good news is – she won. Since 1992, as a keynote speaker, trainer and author she has shared her experiences and knowledge with thousands of clients in five continents.

Robyn presents her material with a unique blend of commonsense, humour, and practical illustrations, gleaned from both her personal experiences and those of her clients.

From Gumboots to the Boardroom

Robyn shares her journey from the years as a librarian, then raising 6 children on an isolated sheep-station in Northland, New Zealand, through welfare aid as a solo mother, part-time government-assisted work, to top-selling real estate agent. She then became a business owner and since 1992 has set up a speaking and training business in two countries, starting each time from scratch, with an entertaining variety of ‘learning experiences’. As her reputation as an eminently practical and easy-to-listen-to speaker on time management-related matters has spread, it has led her to the boardrooms and conference centres of five countries.

She will delight your audience with her practical and humorous journey.


How to be a ‘Clutter Buster’… win the war with your desk and paper

Ever felt stressed and overwhelmed by the volume of paper on your desk and the information you have to process? Are you convinced the stuff breeds the minute your back is turned? Ever given an embarrassed laugh and said to a visitor, ‘Sorry about my office – it’s not usually like this!’? Or taken them into the boardroom because you couldn’t squeeze them round the piles of clutter parked on every spare chair?

Help is here. Have fun with Robyn, finding lighthearted but very practical solutions to one of the most common workplace challenges.

Tap Dancing with Time Wasters

This is a very powerful and practical session – you’ll get the chance to solve your specific problems. In today’s flat-out busy world we rarely take time to discuss and brainstorm solutions to everyday time-stealers. In fact, the majority of the answers are always within the minds and experience of the group. What is needed is the opportunity for discussion and an experienced external facilitator with the knowledge to fill in the gaps.

Some of the topics generally selected by the audience include how to run an effective meeting; how to use the company intra-net more effectively; better delegation; what systems can be improved in the company, and how.


24 Hours IS Enough!

A provocative look at the prevalent beliefs around time, and the thorny topic of work/home/family balance. This speech is designed for the groups who already have a good working knowledge of the principles of time management, and want to dig deeper into the vital subject of how we use our time, and the choices we make in life.

How often do you hear people say “If only I had more hours in the day’, or ‘There’s never enough time to do everything’? Do you want more effective workers? Less stressed employees? Where does quality of life and quality of output fit in? And this elusive goal called Balance – how can we achieve it?

How can we stretch time, get back the weekends, and have more quality time with the ones we love, as well as be more effective at work?

We predict that the ripple effects of peoples’ slowly awakening awareness will profoundly change the way business is done – within the next 10 – 20 years.
