An audience member from one of Robert's talks said, "I've heard so many speakers over the years, and they all seem to have gone to the same school. Except Robert. He's so different. He seems to have gone to his own school." Robert is a special speaker because he and his speaking are one, not two. There is no separation between who he is and what he says.
