Rob Biesenbach

Step Away From the PowerPoint!

Everyone in your organization is in the business of persuasion, whether they’re selling to customers, driving strategy, leading teams or convincing people to wipe down the microwave after their breakfast burrito explodes.

The struggle is real, and you won’t get there with dull data dumps, muddled messaging, impersonal interactions, or one more Dilbert cartoon.

Rob Biesenbach will help your people overcome the clumsy communication practices that cause employees, customers and other critical audiences to tune out and turn off. He’ll equip them with the latest tools and techniques, from powerful storytelling to presentation mastery, so they can connect in a truly meaningful way with those they wish to influence.

That means closing more sales, driving employee performance, fueling growth and even achieving break room peace in our time.

Rob’s consulting, speaking and training work is delivered in-person and virtually.
