Hi, I’m Robin

My mission is to maximize potential.

I run events, including the Design for Dance and Responsive conferences. I own a cafe, and host a podcast about work in the 21st century.

I love movement and write about physical education.


Robin is a intellectual acrobat! As agile with his body as he is with his mind! An insatiable, bright and creative entrepreneur, fond of making things and bringing them to life. Robin is gifted at creating space for people to think dynamically and has a contagious positive energy.

Natasha Tsakos, TED Speaker, Artist & Performer

I work hard and get a lot done. I don’t know of many people who get more done than I do. Robin is one of them.

BJ Fogg, PhD, Director Stanford Persuasive Tech. Lab

Robin is talented, sensitive, and articulate. He not only practices compassion with skill but also conveys this gift usefully to others with both art and precision.

Martha Herbert, MD, PhD, Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School

Robin’s events are the most fun I’ve ever had at a conference, and I run conferences!

How We Work

The Robin Zander Show is a podcast with guests from disciplines as diverse as the arts, technology, and business in which we explore how we work.

The annual Responsive Conference is a similar effort to bring together thought leaders on "The Future of Work" to explore issues relevant to succeeding in the 21st century.

Why Movement

Movement has been my gateway into the study of learning and human performance.

I publish on physical education, including a few small books.

Similarly, the Design for Dance conference, founded at Stanford University, explores dance and behavior change.
