Rob Redenbach provides powerful insights into leadership and resilience.

Drawing from experiences that include working with Nelson Mandela’s bodyguard team in South Africa and surviving a roadside ambush in Iraq, Rob has successfully transferred the strategies of elite security to business and everyday life. His latest book, Leadership Without Rank, casts fresh light on practical steps anyone can follow to become more respected and more influential – whether they have rank or not.

As a keynote speaker and a workshop facilitator, one of the hallmarks of his approach is that he never uses PowerPoint. Instead, he uses humour and hard facts to provoke thought and initiate change.

His proven ability to engage diverse audiences has seen him present at hundreds of major conferences, including the inaugural Global Leadership Summit in Singapore – the largest gathering of CEOs in the world at that time. He has also been featured in a range of media outlets, including the ABC, Sky News Business and the Financial Review.

Influenced by Kaizen (Japanese for continuous improvement), Rob has completed Executive Education at Harvard, studied dispute resolution at Bond University and been awarded a Master of Arts (in Terrorism, Safety & Security) from Charles Sturt University.
