What They Say

Robert’s talks are always: (1) personal: he selects subjects he cares about and explains why he likes them, whether Founding Fathers, businessmen, or musicians; (2) well prepared: both in researching his subjects and tailoring to his audience; and (3) passionate: he cares about his subjects, their accomplishments, and their legacies.
