About the Trainer

Rob O’Donohue (AKA Rob of the Green) started Podcasting in 2016 as a passion project as he wanted to change from consumer to producer of podcasts. Since then he released over 200 episodes over 5 different shows, interviewed highly successful leaders from across the world, learned a lot and made many mistakes doing so. To keep in line with the theme of continuous improvement and helping others get better (1% or more), Rob has started to run podcast workshops in 2019, to individuals and groups to help them get their podcast journey started or improve upon what’s already in place.
