Robby Kojetin

Motivational Speaker - Johannesburg
Robby Kojetin


A simple mistake at an indoor climbing gym left Robby in a wheelchair with severely broken ankles, ruptured tendons and permanently damaged feet, sentencing him to almost a year in a wheelchair and 7 surgeries.

Crippled by mounting debt, depression, having lost everything, Robby takes the audience on a nail biting journey from the brink of suicide, staring at a lethal dose of painkillers, to conquering the ultimate endevour of the human spirit, summitting Mount Everest. Using his experience of rebuilding his life from rock bottom, he invites the audience along as he brings the decisions and conscious shifts in attitude to life in a highly engaging 60-minute story.

His eye-opening insights and super human tenacity make for a story that is as entertaining as it is hard-hitting and relatable.

Since his accident in 2006, Robby has gone on to join a handful of people to have stood on top of the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest. He has also completed the Ironman triathlon, climbed Kilimanjaro nine times, 5 of the Seven Continental Summits - and cemented his place as one of the most inspirational and engaging thought leaders on the international speaking circuit today.

Robby also coaches people to reach their personal summit goals and is a regular contributor to a number of radio programs, magazine articles and TV features, including Discovery Channel’s Everest: Beyond the Limit.
