Rob Lilwall is an adventurer, author, and keynote speaker with expeditions by bicycle and on foot across 80,000km of the world, including through Siberia in winter, Afghanistan, Tibet, Papua New Guinea and Mongolia.
Rob Lilwall’s speeches tell the tale of how, as a very ordinary person, he learnt to camp at minus forty degrees in Siberia, to cross swollen rivers in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, and to survive the lonely passes of Afghanistan whilst riding the world’s slowest getaway vehicle. Using stunning photographs and videos, Rob relates such ordeals in the extreme corners of the world to the ever-growing challenges of the 21st century workplace. He brings to life the mindsets that are needed to succeed in today’s uncertain, high-pressure and high-opportunity business environment, with powerful takeaways to empower the audience to thrive amid change, embrace challenges, and achieve great goals. Rob has given speeches in over 50 cities around the world, to organisations including Microsoft, Symantec, Gemalto, IBM, CBRE, Nike, Adidas, P&G, Mars-Wrigley, Hyatt and Marriott.
Rob’s story has also been told in a critically acclaimed book published by Hodder and Stoughton (UK) and two television series’ by National Geographic.
