National Start-Up Day

"Delighted that Robert could join us in Hull for the first National Start-Up Day! Robert has a warmth that people connect with easily, he is realistic and down to earth with a broad depth of knowledge and experiences to share. Attendees found him inspiring with an ability to positively challenge them to try new things. And this doesn’t stop after the event, some of our them are still in touch with him.  

Book him early - Robert will help to promote and generate interest in your event too!"

We live in a time of unprecedented change. You want to gently nudge people from inertia and denial, to accept that change is inevitable and to play their part in building tomorrow’s world. Perhaps you want them to do this because you employ them, supply them or just because you care.  Robert can surprise and occasionally shock. He’s perhaps the first TedX talk speaker to throw an egg into the audience. (But you’ll be reassured to know he warned the recipient it was coming!)
