Bob is my life-time career mentor. His commercial capabilities combined with people oriented warm heart have led his organisations to be more competent places that people like to work for. His expertise in managing aged workers will ensure he keeps contributing to worldwide policy makers in this fast ageing society.

There are management consultants, speakers, advisors, and then there is Bob Critchley. His deep and rich background in successful senior management positions, including Managing Director and Chairman, give credibility and perspective in his strategic consultations and lectures.
The real secret though, is the integrity and respect Bob commands.
In the corporate boardroom, he is honest, trustworthy, confidential, yet charming and graceful in his approach. On the speaker’s rostrum, he is inviting, warm, sincere and has the ability to become a virtual family member.
He is one of those rare individuals in that once you spend time with him, hear his thoughts, and witness his ability to process information quickly and accurately, you will most likely feel as I do. Yes, Bob’s warmth and charm help, but it is his character and substance that make him such a valuable asset to senior management and their staff.

On many occasions I have witnessed Bob present and each time he impresses me enormously.

Bob Chritchley and I have worked together over the past 3 years on a number of senior executive education programs and in delivering national Keynote Speaker and facilitation assignments to large numbers of successful business entrepreneurs and professional services providers.
Bob is unique. He combines many years experience as a senior business banker, then became a highly successful entrepreneur running his own businesses, firstly within Australia and then internationally.
He now also has the experience of being the Chair or an External Director for a number of Australian ASX publicly listed companies and several large private enterprises. He is renowned for his capabilities in best practice corporate finance, corporate governance and senior level executive development.
He is also a successful author, an accomplished presenter and public speaker.
More than being a rare business talent, Bob is a “giver” to the broader Australian community.
He genuinely seeks to enrich both the business and personal lives of the people he works with and those he meets in his extensive array of business activities.
It has been my privilege to work with him and I look forward to our long term future relationship.

Bob was a key-note speaker at our MBE Conference in Langkawi. With Bob’s broad business background, he delivered a thought provoking presentation aimed at developing a winning culture, business values, creating flexible work practices, making the most of skills shortages and life choices. Thanks to Bob’s extensive experience in business and his superb content and delivery, our delegates left re-thinking the way they conduct business and how they can positively impact their future business decisions. While with us Bob took the time to stay on and network with our delegates and help them with their own specific needs. I highly recommend Bob as a professional, motivating key-note speaker for any progressive business.
We have been lucky enough to have Bob present at various events for St George Bank including to a large audience of our key corporate clients and to a group of our senior management team. Bob’s strategy sessions on motivation of employees and improving performance helped us renew our energy and excitement about the future direction of our business.
