Rob Redenbach

After a successful international career in VIP Protection, Rob Redenbach transferred the strategies of personal security and tactical communication to the business arena.

Drawing from experiences that include working with the bodyguard team of Nelson Mandela in South Africa and providing risk management services in the Middle East, Rob provides compelling insights into leadership, adaptability and how to reduce conflict and improve cooperation.

A Nationally Accredited Mediator, Rob has studied post-graduate law at Bond University’s Dispute Resolution Centre and has a Master of Arts (with Distinction) in Terrorism, Safety and Security from Charles Sturt University. He has also completed Executive Education at Harvard Kennedy School of Government in the United States.

Media reviews of Rob’s autobiography “Waveman” included “a great, inspiring and motivating read, with wider audience appeal than it would first seem” and attracted positive coverage in The Financial Review and Sky News Business – among others.

Corporate executives, special forces officers, project managers, professional educators and small business owners are just some of Rob’s clients who have benefited from his leadership and communication strategies.


Rob Redenbach’s primary keynote presentations are: 7 Leverage Tools and Power of Initiative. While the content of the two presentations is different, both incorporate a healthy mix of humour, memorable stories and practical knowledge. Additionally, Rob can tailor his material to suit a particular training objective or conference theme.

7 Leverage Tools

7 Leverage Tools approaches communication and leadership from the perspective that working with, rather than against, human nature leads to a better outcome for everyone involved.

Available in 60 and 90 minute formats, 7 Leverage Tools combines academic rigour with emotional intelligence and streetwise leadership to deliver seven surefire techniques anyone can instantly apply to:

  • Reduce conflict.
  • Improve cooperation.
  • Lead effectively.

If you are serious about improving your ability to influence the attitude and behaviour of people around you, 7 Leverage Tools will give you a significant advantage in any situation that involves leadership, teamwork and communication.

Power of Initiative

Rob Redenbach’s Power of Initiative brings to life the core message of his autobiography “Waveman” which Peter FitzSimons of the Sydney Morning Herald described as “A tour de force!”

With a unique blend of self-deprecating wit and hard-won wisdom, Rob recounts his extraordinary journey from managing a security company in Papua New Guinea to teaching his own system of self defence to the bodyguards of South Africa’s first democratically elected president, Nelson Mandela.

A story within a story, Power of Initiative will surprise and delight as it demonstrates the universal value of a proactive approach to personal and professional development.

“Waveman is a rollicking ride . . . the over-riding charm is that despite the dangerous locations and his obvious skill, the author is self-effacing and comes across as a kind of everyman.”
