An African Odessey - Rob Caskie Engaging Storytelling

25/11/2017 - 25/11/2017 ()

Rob Caskie


“Our Young Country has a fascinating and complex history”

This story deals with early inhabitants and the arrival of the Nguni people.  One of them became the military genius Shaka, with major implications.  Religious persecution and poor standards of living result in a miscellany of Europeans arriving in the Cape after 1652. British rule, taxation and slavery eventually leads to the Great Trek.  Some emphasis will be given to the development of the mighty Zulu nation, particularly appropriate in Natal's history. Along with the discovery of diamonds and gold, it creates a kaleidoscope of characters and intrigue worth sharing.

As always Rob shares these stories from a human perspective and the character sketches are beguiling.

About Rob Caskie

ROB CASKIE ~ Storyteller extraordinaire, keynote speaker, cultural guide and author

Stories of human trials and triumphs never go out of vogue, and mesmerising storyteller extraordinaire Rob Caskie, with his walking stick and trademark shorts, brings them alive like no other. Often in the settings where such stories unfolded, in South Africa and abroad. In a world of instant gratification, the art of a powerfully told story belongs to few and relies on he who stirs the imagination.

Most interested in how people behave when challenged and under pressure, he believes we only reveal our true strength in adversity – and he shows audiences how they can draw on this to thrive in uncertain times.

Rob’s new keynote, ‘Engaging Intuition’, takes the familiar concept of ‘Ubuntu’, or interconnectedness, and repurposes it for today’s audiences. While times may have changed, the virtues of goodness, positivity, intuition and sharing are perhaps more important than ever in South Africa – and Rob brings a message of hope into boardrooms and conference venues. Suggesting that it is interconnectedness that makes the world go around, he shares stories of greatness, diversity and generosity that will reach the hearts of even the most cynical audiences.

Rob excels in crafting lessons from some of the greatest historic tales available. These lessons focus primarily on leadership, choice, victory and defeat. Using his skills as a tour guide, Rob brings immediacy and passion to his keynotes, knowing just which messages to deliver to inspire, to create change or to entertain.

Importantly, Rob can modify content in such a way that it speaks to an event’s theme or a client’s objective – whatever the occasion, he delivers an important message in an accessible, engaging fashion.
