BIOGRAPHY ROBBY KOJETIN
In 2006, Robby Kojetin broke both ankles in a freak accident at an indoor climbing gym, sentencing a 28-year-old advertising creative to a wheelchair. This sparked a downward spiral to absolute rock bottom that eventually cost him his business, his engagement to be married, his independence and ultimately, his will to live. His story follows a descent into the darkest depths of debt and depression and addiction to pain medication. Robby's undoing culminated in a suicide attempt which fortunately failed. Faced without any other option, Robby began a painful journey to be "stronger, tougher, more determined" than he was the day before. That was day one. After seven surgeries, countless hours of physical therapy and his daily commitment to rebuild his life, on Day 928, Robby became the 17th South African to summit Mount Everest and realise the dream that literally saved his life. Since successfully climbing Mount Everest, Robby has had the privilege of sharing his story with over 80 000 people, in 12 countries on 5 continents. Robby's book, Mind Over Mountain, has sold over 4000 copies globally, and compliments his keynote presentation, unpacking vital issues such as depression, suicide, anxiety, hope and recovery. Robby Kojetin speaks on the global circuit to a diverse range of audiences with his unique story. Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, Robby is a father, husband, mental wellness advocate and a gifted artist with several signature pieces in collections around the world. Robby has also established himself as an with over 20 expeditions to high altitude on some of the world's most challenging peaks including K2, Denali and 9 summits of Kilimanjaro, as well crossing the Ironman finish line in his ongoing quest to redefine what is possible.

MIND OVER MOUNTAIN - A mental and physical climb to the top
A simple mistake at an indoor climbing gym sentenced 28-year-old Robby to a year in a wheelchair, shattering his aspirations of becoming a mountaineer.
In the months that followed, Robby faced depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts and a complete loss of his sense of identity. But from somewhere deep inside him, he summoned up the strength to keep going even when all seemed lost; he embarked on a monumental journey, a feat of mental and physical strength. His weakness became his power.
