ROBERT IAN BONNICK
Robert Ian Bonnick has danced for M-People, Womack and Womack, recruited for Madonna and modelled alongside Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Eva Herzigová. He has also travelled the globe living in destinations such as London, Sydney, and Milan.
As the main promoter for Australia's most iconic venues, it would be easy to dismiss Rob as one of the ‘lucky few' who has rubbed shoulders with the rich and famous. In reality, luck has had nothing to do with Robs success.
Growing up in an orphanage between the ages of two and eighteen, Rob did not get a running start in the game of life. In addition to the initial challenges of not having a family, Rob was faced a choice. Would he choose to reflect and follow the path of fellow orphans who ended up in jail or dead? Or, instead choose to step into his greatest potential as a human being?
As a speaker and MC, Rob is a born entertainer bringing grace and charisma to any corporate stage. He has hosted events for the globes biggest stars, and has mastered the art of influence when it comes to connecting people, and engaging audiences.
Rob is deeply passionate about providing people with the tools that enable self-reflection and awareness. After all, the reflection of ourselves that we hide from is more often than not, the fuel that ignites our greatest potential as a human being.
Despite the scars of a troubled youth, Rob has used his pain to embrace purpose, and today is a passionate advocate for youth at risk, overcoming adversity and standing united in diversity. After all, it is not life's circumstances that define who we become, but the wise words of the ‘man in the mirror'.
