About Robert

Young Robert

Robert was born in 1955. Like many highly intelligent people, (he has an IQ of 155) he did not start learning until he had left the education system. After a successful corporate sales and marketing career he became self-employed in in 1990. Since then he has started and sold businesses, written 15 books and helped thousands of people become more entrepreneurial.

He is inquisitive, intuitive and at times intellectual. He explores paradoxes, exposes myths and challenges the status quo. Some consider him controversial others find him empathic and sensitive. He treads paths others choose to avoid, learning, reflecting and sharing his interpretation and experience.

Robert Ashton
His campaigning led to the establishment of Norfolk Community Foundation, an organisation that now gives grants totalling more than £1m pa. He was a Trustee for seven years and is now a Vice Patron. He is also a Patron of Hertfordshire Action on Disability. In 2012 Robert started the Robert Ashton Organisation Ltd
, a social enterprise that connects newly self-employed people with valuable skills with organisations needing help. 

Robert lives in a converted barn in rural Norfolk Robert Ashtonwith his wife Belinda. They have two grown up children, one a city trader, the other an epidemiologist working in East Africa.

Huge thank you to Robert for coming to the artshoproject and suggesting lots of ideas to us. He was very easy to talk to and seemed to get what we are about straight away. His enthusiasm is catching and we came away energised – no mean feat at the end of a rainy November day! We liked Robert a lot.
