Robert Ian Bonnick's Biography

Through his adversity, Robert Ian Bonnick has been able to face life’s challenges through choice.  He has created an incredible life for himself and now shares his passion to enable self-reflection and awareness.  An engaging speaker, Robert inspires leaders, staff and individuals to feel empowered.

Robert Ian Bonnick has danced for M-People, Womack and Womack, recruited for Madonna and modelled alongside Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Eva Herzigová. He has also travelled the globe living in destinations such as London, Sydney, and Milan.

As the main promoter for Australia’s most iconic venues and parties, it would be easy to dismiss Rob as one of the ‘lucky few’ who has rubbed shoulders with the rich and famous. In reality, luck has had nothing to do with Robs success.

Growing up in an orphanage between the ages of two and eighteen, Rob did not get a running start in the game of life. In addition to the initial challenges of not having a family, Rob was faced a choice. Would he choose to reflect and follow the path of fellow orphans who ended up in jail or dead? Or, instead choose to step into his greatest potential as a human being?

As a speaker and MC, Rob is a born entertainer bringing grace and charisma to any corporate stage. He has hosted events for the globe’s biggest stars, and has mastered the art of influence when it comes to connecting people, and engaging audiences.

Rob is deeply passionate about providing people with the tools that enable self-reflection and awareness. After all, the reflection of ourselves that we hide from is more often than not, the fuel that ignites our greatest potential as a human being.

Despite the scars of a troubled youth, Rob has used his pain to embrace purpose, and today is a passionate advocate for youth at risk, overcoming adversity and standing united in diversity. After all, it is not life’s circumstances that define who we become, but the wise words of the ‘man in the mirror’.

SOUL SURVIVOUR – How an abandoned child went from nothing to everything

 

Robert Ian Bonnick grew up in a children’s home, yet, when so many of his fellow orphans ended up in jail or dead, he overcame his difficult start in life to achieve success in sport, modelling, hospitality and a motivational speaker. While there were failures along the way, he learnt quickly how to prosper and realised there were five keys that, when applied correctly and consistently, allowed him to unlock great success and happiness.

 

Robert outlines his humble beginnings and how he applied the five keys in his own life, with colourful examples to illustrate each and show that it’s not where you come from but where you are going that matters.

 

This presentation provides key to unlocking your own potential using self-reflection, self empowerment, dream activation and tips for overcoming adversity.

 

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION IN THE WORKPLACE (Keynote/Facilitator/Coach)

 

What do you see when you look at your work colleague? What if you have a fundamental mistrust or negative view of them? Or a lingering doubt without even knowing them which affects your performance at work or that of your team.

 

In this presentation, participants are empowered with the tools to awaken a level of self-awareness, in order to reframe limiting belief systems and behaviors that inhibit the ability to step into our greatest potential both personally and professionally. Moreover you will gain a clear insight into why you think in the way you do, why you have generalisations about other people in the way that you do and why bringing this to your working environment has a negative effect.

 

Through key learning methodologies, participants will not only walk away from this presentation, empowered with the skills to take personal responsibility for the outcome of our decisions, rather than external conditions, but also with greater compassion for themselves and the people that they work with. This enables transformation in the working environment – which will lead to transformation in the culture of the team and the atmosphere at work. This in turn will produce greater rewards for the organisation as participants will feel more engaged in their lives at work. They will feel greater alignment with their purpose and most importantly each other – creating a more fulfilling and happier life at work.

 

Whether you are an organisation employing a selection of staff from a plethora of backgrounds, or an individual looking for more personal fulfilment, or a professional looking for career advancement, or a leader looking to inspire their team, all the keys to success start with understanding diversity and inclusion, knowing why we think they way we do, create greater compassion and more uplifting productive environment at work.
