Robbi Mack is the ‘Queen of HeartBeatz’ and has a passion for inspiring and amplifying the potential found in human connection and for creating awareness within others to consciously raise their resilience. Robbi empowers people with the tools to integrate our minds, with messages from the heart. An expert in emotional intelligence she innately understands the power of resilience and the importance of self-awareness and self-management in becoming our greatest selves.
Every human being has a heart beat. It is the rhythm that unifies and connects us all. Metaphorically the heart symbolises relationships and love in all forms. It is through the heart we unite, in our organisations, community and family. Our heart and its beat are at the essence of all life.
'HeartBeatz' lays a foundation for inspired heart-centred leadership. Understanding human connection enhances communication, strengthens teams and builds collaborative high performing cultures. At the core of business is the heart of the people driving its success.
As a professional entertainer, singer and comedian, Robbi spent the early years of her career becoming the masterful performer she is today. Those years were bright with spotlights and glitter. However, the lights dimmed when after the birth of her son she descended into deep postnatal depression for several years.
This was combined with a family member’s collapse and homelessness from crippling alcoholism plus the death of her parents, adding to her overwhelming distress. The greatest sunrise comes after the darkest nights, and these challenges led Robbi on an inward journey to recovery building tools of resilience to overcome hardship with grace and create stability. She has travelled from depressed to dynamic and inspires others to be their greatest selves.
These experiences led Robbi through destiny's door when in 2004 she had the privilege of joining a global community of Clown Doctors inspired by Doctor Patch Adams.
Working for over a decade as the vivacious, compassionate 'Doctor Have-a-chat' at Sydney’s Children’s Hospitals, she experienced first hand the extraordinary power of the human heart. Robbi developed tools to use humour, empathy, and connection with a clear intention to initiate a sense of emotional well-being in children experiencing trauma. She witnessed first hand the power we have as individuals to influence others in a positive way.
Today, Robbi uses these same tools to empower individuals and corporate organisations to activate ‘HeartBeatz’. Raising resilience and enabling a deeper sense of emotional intelligence allows us to take personal responsibility for the choices we make in regards to human engagement in our personal and professional lives. Her quest and long term vision is to connect people to themselves and others creating vital individuals, teams and organisations.
As a speaker, Robbi is a five-foot firecracker who brings style and flare to any conference program. Spending most of her life onstage her presentation is a unique combination of enriching business content delivered with the execution of a world-class performer.
