Engagement overview

I work with motivated senior executives and owners on the intersection between their personal and professional attitudes, habits and behaviors. Sometimes this is one-on-one, sometimes in a team training environment. My work is focused on results so if only a general, small improvement in performance is desired, I'm probably not your guy.

We all make decisions -- especially important ones like our career direction -- because something is more important than something else. These foreign national contributors deserve and need a sit down designed to explore what they really want. They may not realize that there is a bigger game available to them if they choose to improve their English. This is not about economic nationalism. The linq... Read more

James R. Leva, Chairman, CEO and President General Public Utilities

The Seminar experience was the single most powerful learning event in my life. I was able to create a much deeper understanding of my life's journey and see how to make a bigger difference and greater contribution to others. I believe the personal results that are possible in the seminar coupled with the reinforcement from the book Living an Extraordinary Life are so extensive and pervasive, it would be impossible for anyone not to learn and grow significantly

Nelson Frye, Consulting Firm Associate

To say Robert White's work is life changing sounds so cliche'd but I thank God for the opportunity to be challenged to examine my goals and the path I am on. This has indeed led to me change my life by aligning my goals and path in such away that I have seen my dreams come true

Craig Burrows, Missionary and Aid Director

I learned from my seminars that even in defeat, I can win; that my competitors are there to bring out the best in me and that it is through knocking down the doors to my own heart that I am most happy

Nobuhira Shimada, Champion Formula One Racer

My seminar experience gave me a clearer sense of what my life is about, what is possible, what an incredible gift life is. Part of me always wanted to go one way while another part wanted another. After the seminar, I've been clear about my focus. It seems like everything in my life is working in alignment toward that focus. It's very exciting and I'm very proud of the songs I wrote to celebrate my experience of working with my friend Robert White: "Higher Ground" and "The Gift You Are

John Denver, Singer, Songwriter, Activist

These seminars, over twenty years ago, were a very important and positive turning point in my life. They brought me face to face with many hitherto unresolved (and largely unrecognized) issues, and helped me to see how to resolve them and to live more honestly, openly, positively and lovingly - in particular, to open myself more to the love of other people. Since then I feel my life has blossomed in many respects - awareness, focus, career, love, friendships, achievements, happiness, adventure - and I feel a huge debt to Robert White and all the good things he stands for

Martin Beresford, Representative Director

The Aspen Experience with Robert White was truly life changing... There were relationships developed that week that I know will last a lifetime. I will never again underestimate the power and benefit of introspection and self-renewal. I can't think of a better way to spend at minimum one week per year. I will forever treasure the opportunity

Kimberly Davis, SVP Global Development Chase Manhattan Bank, USA

My work in the Robert White's seminar allowed me to uncover and heal a [hidden] wound that had been adversely affecting my interactions with my coworkers for over 20 years. This discovery gave me a new sense of freedom and improved effectiveness in dealing with my colleagues

Ken Fischer, Marketing Executive

I have attended several of Robert's seminars and made a major life breakthrough at each one. I highly recommend his seminars!

Joseph J. Janiczek, Best-selling Author How to achieve Absolute Financial Freedom, USA

A masterfully delivered seminar that helped me to move toward mastering my own life and work
