“I heard Rob Davis speak in NYC at a fundraising benefit called “Open Your Heart To The Children,” held to raise money from the financial community for the prevention and treatment of child abuse. He was the CEO of Hedge funds Care/Help For Children, www.HFC.org, an organization he founded that supported nonprofit agencies throughout the U.S., Cayman Islands, Canada, U.K., Ireland & Hong Kong, that helped children who had suffered the trauma of abuse and their families. I was the Executive Director of one of those agencies and received Rob’s support for several years. 

There were more than 900 people jammed into the ballroom in attendance. The chatter and clinking of glasses was booming as Rob stepped up to the podium, but quickly quieted down as he began to speak. Rob clearly commanded attention at the podium but is also sincere and engagings, his voice warm and trustworthy and his words demonstrating his knowledge and passion for the subject. 

I left the benefit that evening feeling renewed inspiration. I must say that Rob is a wonderful public speaker. Child Abuse is a difficult topic to speak about, but he tempered the disturbing facts with hope and optimism. It was as though he gave us an individual pat on the back and I felt recognized and even more passionate about the work to help children. He gave us a clear reminder that every child deserved a happy childhood and his very big heart came clearly through.

When Rob finished his speech he received a standing ovation and there were few dry eyes in sight. I for one left motivated and energized by his sincerity, warmth and appreciation for the work that I and many in attendance did. I would gladly go out of my way to hear him again.

I remember receiving a phone call in the late 90’s from Rob Davis about creating a non-profit organization within the financial services industry to raise money for the prevention and treatment of abused children. I had experience in the non-profit area as an attorney and agreed to assist. Rob asked what we should call it and I suggested “Hedge Funds Care”, currently known as “Help For Children.” Since that time, under Rob’s leadership, “Help For Children” has grown considerably into an international organization with chapters both within and outside the United States. I have had the pleasure of hearing Rob speak on behalf of the organization many times, to groups both large and small, articulating in a compelling manner the vision of  its aims and goals.
