Robyn has been described as the greatest woman basketball player Australia has ever produced.

She has been representing Australia at International Level for over 20 years. She has captained The Opals; Australia's most successful basketball team since 1989.

Under her inspired leadership The Opals have attained the remarkable world ranking of third and have won Australia's first ever Olympic Medal (Bronze at Atlanta) and World Championship Medal (Bronze at Berlin).

A truly great athlete, Robyn represented Australia at three Olympic Games - Los Angeles in 1984, Seoul in 1988 and Atlanta in 1996.

She has nine WNBL titles to her credit including leading the Spectre's to six titles in seven years and then winning three consecutive titles. In all she has played in 5 World Championships, won 10 WNBL titles, was voted WNBL Most Valuable Player 1983 and 1987, WNBL All Star Five 1988, WNBL Defensive Player 1992 and 1994.

Robyn is a charming person, warm and remarkably easy to relate to. As a professional athlete, wife and mother one of her favourite subjects is "having it (or managing) it all", a presentation that is both insightful and amusing.

Other favoured speaking topics include inspired leadership, teamwork and longevity (staying on top).
