We were extremely pleased with Bob Rathbun. After he completed his presentation, I took the microphone and explained to the audience that we have been using professional keynote speakers for about 10 years. In that 10 years, I never met the keynote speaker prior to the opening day of the conference, UNTIL Bob Rathbun came onto the scene. I further explained that Bob met personally with me and another board member and took pages of notes about the attendees of our conference. He was attempting to learn as much as he could about their jobs, their mindsets, the issues they face and any other information he could use. Additionally, he attended our board meeting two weeks prior to the conference and let our members learn about him and vice versa. After learning this, the audience gave him a standing ovation. We were extremely pleased with Bob and would highly recommend him to others.

Your presentation was absolutely wonderful! The content you provided was excellent and it was right on target! It’s so wonderful to find a speaker who puts their heart and soul into their presentation and into everything else they do. I believe this has the biggest impact of all.

When I asked Bob Rathbun to handle moderating duties for our annual issues forum, I knew I could count on him to walk the tightrope for our audience. The subject matter has to be informative for those in sports media and entertaining for those who might not care about sports or media. Not only did Bob do a great job, but he exceeded even my expectations. Of the four panel discussions we have held since I’ve been on the job, this was by far the best.

Bob spoke to my University of Georgia graduate class on the importance of effective communication skills and developing rapport with the media. The students found him personable, engaging, entertaining and very knowledgeable. Not only did they find his presentation enjoyable, but the take home lessons have proven invaluable. Bob Rathbun is a motivational speaker with substance. He speaks from the heart and from experience–a powerful combination.

Bob is truly a professional. Not because he workes in the broadcasting industry but because he understands how to communicate with people well. I have only known Bob for a short time but he has shared a wealth of meaningful information with me that has allowed me to help many others. Bob has inspired me to inspire others. It is one thing to be one of the best in your industry but it just as impressive to be willing to share information with others. Bob Rathbun is truly a professional.

Bob Rathbun sure makes his job look easy, and that’s hard. His insights into what it takes to succeed in sports (and in life) are simply elegant. Bob shares those with an energy and fluidity that makes his concepts so easy to absorb. Because of his decades of involvement with high-level competition, he’s able to distill the trite one-size-fits-all admonishments you’ve heard others dish out into powerful nuggets you can actually use. Plus, he’s genuinely interested in seeing you use them and succeed. Work with Bob, and you’ll find him to be a great guy AND a great asset.

Bob approaches each day with more enthusiasm than anyone I know. His preparation is second to none. He treats every person that crosses his path with humility and respect. There is no one I respect more than Bob Rathbun.

I had the pleasure of seeing first hand what a TRUE professional Bob always was in every endeavor he took on. We worked the “daybreak” news show together and he was always on top of things, even when the rest of us were just lucky enough to be awake! His constant positive energy is contagious. His knowledge knows no boundary! Anyone lucky enough to work with him will learn more than any University could ever teach!

We have had the privilege of working with Bob Rathbun for 5 years. He has emceed a number of our events, ranging from the annual Naismith Awards Banquet to the Naismith Awards Invitational celebrity golf tournament welcome dinner, to our College Basketball Preview Luncheons. There is no easier person to work with, and more professional, than Bob. He instantly elevates the quality and prestige of our events through his dynamic style, endless energy and eloquent presentation. We know we’re in good hands when Bob takes the microphone…and we’re proud to have him serve on the Atlanta Tipoff Club Board of Directors.
