Robin Sharma Biography
(Writer, Public Speaker)
Birthday: June 16, 1964 (Gemini)
Born In: Port Hawkesbury
Robin Sharma is a Canadian author of Indian origin, internationally acclaimed as a motivational and leadership speaker. He became a worldwide sensation with his second book, ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari,’ and is known as a writer with a deep understanding of life. He holds a master’s degree in law and has worked as a litigation lawyer. However, he could not find peace or satisfaction in his work. At the young age of 25, Sharma decided to turn his life around and give writing a shot. The turning point in his life did not come in a moment’s epiphany. It was a long-drawn process, full of failures. After the international success of his second book, he quit law and gave in to his calling. What he did not foresee, however, was his popularity as a speaker. Currently, he is consulted by CEOs and top leaders from the corporate world, who seek his advice on how to keep employees inspired. He has consulted and conducted trainings for many ‘Fortune 500’ companies, including ‘Microsoft,’ ‘GE,’ ‘Nike,’ ‘FedEx,’ and ‘IBM.’ Organizations such as ‘NASA,’ ‘Yale University,’ ‘The Young Presidents Organization,’ and ‘Harvard Business School’ regularly invite him to deliver speeches.
