Rob O'Neill Reviews

  • CyberSheath - Aug 09 2023

  • Our whole team deeply enjoyed Rob’s presentation. We appreciated him mingling with us beforehand, and he appeared to be interested in getting to know the team. His speaking style is so engaging and magnetic. He possesses so much natural charisma and that coupled with the subject matter he presents is really powerful. He does a masterful job of mixing heavy and serious topics with light-hearted jokes and funny anecdotes and stories in-between. He is so far from the average person, and yet he has an uncanny way of connecting to the “average joe”.
    Nine Energy - Mar 29 2023

  • I absolutely love working with the AAE team. They are so helpful and wonderful. I feel like I'm completely supported throughout the duration of picking a speaker through and past the event day. You guys rock!
