About Robert Ian Bonnick
A tall charismatic English born Jamaican, Robert Ian Bonnick who has co-run a hospitality business voted number 3 in the world, as a sportsman represented his country at the highest level, danced for M-People, Womack and Womack, recruited for Madonna (MTV Music Awards) and modeled alongside supermodels such as Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Eva Hertzigova and Christy Turlington. He has also traveled the globe living in destinations such as London, Sydney, Milan and Bali.
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, there has been a lot of self-work behind the scenes which strongly influenced Rob’s success.
Growing up in two orphanages between the ages of one and eighteen, Rob did not get a running start in the game of life. In addition to the initial challenges of not having his parents, Rob was faced with 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, trainer/coach and Author of Soul Survivor (published by New Holland Publishers), 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, engaging audiences utilising a natural penchant for being animated in his humour whilst storytelling.
Rob is deeply passionate about providing people with the tools that enable self-reflection, awareness in an atmosphere of diversity and inclusion. After all, the reflection of ourselves that we hide from, is more often than not, the fuel that ignites our greatest potential as human beings. This becomes even more important now being a Father of two young girls.
Rob has leveraged his natural ability, experience and skill as a coach / speaker in his latest venture, two ONLINE courses rolled into one. How To Turn Your Story Into A Book and How To Turn Your Story Into A Book & A 6-Figure Income.
