Episode 11 of the Podcast Features Stories from Professional Storyteller and Explorer Rob Caskie
Crystal Symphony Cruise Director Shane Morley is setting sail with storyteller specializing in South African History as well as early Arctic and Antarctic exploration, Rob Caskie as they sail from Amsterdam to Monte Carlo.
Rob Caskie’s career as a storyteller launched when he began sharing stories about solo motorcycle journeys in Africa. With a varied background Rob has always believed that human beings have an innate desire to hear stories, and more particularly stories about human beings, rather than events.
Telling stories for a living began in 2001, on the famous Anglo-Zulu War battlefields at the foot of world-renowned raconteur, David Rattray. Researching and sharing human dramas has taken Rob to the Antarctic on numerous occasions, the Arctic, annually to the UK and very regularly to the Battlefields.
Rob chooses stories from his repertoire for clients depending on their theme or what their objective is. He modifies content accordingly, drawing from a miscellany of stories. With stick and trademark shorts, Rob prides himself in positive, unique storytelling and does not rely on electronic or visual aids ‘when the lights trip, Rob does not’.
