Robbi Mack is an engaging, funny and passionate keynote speaker that takes the audience on an emotional rollercoaster from pin dropping silence to roaring laughter. She is a great reminder of the value of a positive attitude when dealing with challenging situations.
Robbi’s message is heartfelt and authentic inspiring people to take stock of their current position in both work and life and motivates them into action to improve their performance and productivity. Leaders, managers and people who participate in all levels of companies are shown that they have the choice to create the culture they work in regardless of the circumstances they find themselves in.
Robbi enjoyed an excellent ‘first career’ working as a full time professional entertainer, singer and comedian within the theatre and television industry. Things changed dramatically when post natal depression took Robbi to the depths of her own personal despair, a stark contrast to the laughter and delight she had given others. Learning to live again after recovering from crippling depression, she found her love of laughter again through giving, this time as a Clown Doctor working in Sydney’s children’s hospitals.
Robbi has had the privilege of belonging to a unique global community of Clown Doctors originally inspired by Dr Patch Adams. For ten years Robbi has worked within Sydney’s children’s hospitals as the much-loved vivacious Dr Have-a-Chat, spreading her brand of love and laughter to help minimise and relieve pain and suffering through the healing effects of humour. Robbi is passionate about the ‘art of connection’; she believes that empathy gives us the opportunity to have a massive impact in a moment that really matters.
When Robbi first began working as Clown Doctor Have-a-Chat she felt she was there to ‘give’, however she ended up receiving so much more and these days shares her message, ‘Laugh, Live & Give’. Her energetic and uplifting leadership message inspires people to connect with their humanity so that they lead more fulfilling lives and have richer relationships with themselves and others in the workplace and at home.
