…helping you make the impossible, possible

I work with individuals, teams and across organisations or communities to help you deliver impossible results. Over the last 25 years this has included working with large corporations, entrepreneurs, sports professionals and charities, as well as large-scale projects such as the 2012 Olympics. I am a Non-Executive Director of EMMY and BAFTA-winning visual effects company Jellyfish Pictures, and a writer and speaker on issues ranging from leadership, to flexible thinking and the dynamics of conversation. My first book was 'Blamestorming: Why Conversations Go Wrong and How to Fix Them', and 'Workstorming' will be published this year. Do also visit www.conversationexpert.com

"What I found from Rob was practical help and a very 'no kidding' approach to problems and issues. There was no fluffy nonsense, no creeping to the boss, no pulling of punches, but we found it easy to be brave because we knew it came from a great commitment to us. His approach allowed us to become more self-reliant."

Chief Executive Officer


The route through my professional life has not been traditional or linear.  I worked with amputees at the age of 18 in India, before completing a degree in English at the University of York and becoming a professional artist with work sold in 24 countries.

For the last 20 years, I have passionately explored 2 themes: the power of communication to transform people’s lives, and how to approach and fulfil challenges that are widely considered to be impossible. This has involved working with leaders and teams on every continent, and leading public and corporate programmes with many thousands of people, as well as speaking and writing. Highlights have included:

  • Working with organisations undergoing huge upheaval, such as AT&T, Shell, and Nedbank in South Africa
  • Supporting companies that are out to break the mould, such as Burberry, smile, Selfridges, Saatchi & Saatchi, Zopa
  • Coaching sports professionals, such as the Kent County Cricket team
  • Helping the delivery of landmark projects such as the construction of Heathrow Terminal 5 and the London 2012 Olympics
  • Assisting institutions at the heart of national life in the UK such as The Post Office, Met Office and BBC Worldwide

Here is a full list of companies I’ve worked with.

My first book Blamestorming was published by Watkins in September 2014 and will be available in 5 languages by the end of 2016. I  am represented by Robert Kirby at United Agents.
