Enhance your online presence

Here at Protagonist, we’ve challenged ourselves to make the switch to virtual quickly. The primary focus was to enhance our virtual presence. It’s been quite a journey from laptop, to webcam, to now using a mirrorless camera and good lighting.

In this refresher course, Rob Salafia will introduce you to the many ways we’ve adapted our work to virtual and share insights to help you enhance your own virtual presence.

Meet Rob

Driven by a passion to coach business leaders to develop their presence, tell compelling stories, and establish authentic connections, Rob Salafia combines two decades of experience as a top leadership development executive with a stellar past career in the performing arts.

In his current professional role, he assists leaders in their quests to build sharper levels of emotional and narrative intelligence, transition into higher organizational levels, and share their visions and strategies in compelling and relevant ways.

Great storytellers are willing to open themselves up and allow us to be in the story with them. We feel what they feel. We see what they see. And, most of all, we gain the realization and insight from the experience that they have had. Their story is our story.


“Rob is great to work with…he really cares about listening to your requirements, bringing that brief to life and delivering on it. He’s always curious, engaged, motivated, highly flexible and reliable and delivers what he says he will!”

Laura Ellis Director of Global Talent – Sony Music Entertainment

Rob is a well-grounded and well-rounded coach. He taught me the power of story-telling. It has meant a great deal in my development as a leader. He is able to select the right combination of exercises for the right time.

Peter Penning IT Manager - ING Bank

Rob makes leaders shine. I engaged Rob to help coach and train two performing CEO’s in facilitation and speech delivery. Rob used a conversational and casual coaching style which helped disarm the mechanical/processed sequencing often associated in these trainings.

Timothy Wong Sr. Manager - YPO

As my coach, Rob motivated me to work hard and guided me to develop the skills necessary to deliver an engaging and relevant presentation to 500 credit risk officers. His dedication to my development and his ability to challenge at just the right time enabled me to bring my story to life.

Darryl Fess President and CEO - Brookline Bank

As chair of the speaker committee for a conference that my firm recently held, I invited Rob to be our morning keynote. Rob exceeded our expectations with an engaging and relevant message for our audience. We even surveyed our participants as a follow up to the event and Rob received rave reviews.

Jessi Ryan Vice President of Business Consulting - IMA Financial Group, Inc.

When I watch Rob working with senior leaders there are couple of words that come to mind: passion, authenticity, helping others to transform, compelling and engaging. Last but not least a pleasure to work with!

Ewa Wisniewska Talent Management - NN Insurance Group
