Passionate about understanding and explaining change executed by innovative companies, Robert has written for top-tier outlets like The Guardian and Wired News, and provided intelligence to communities on matters affecting their industries.
Drawing on 15 years’ sector experience and from voluminous sources and perspectives, Robert is known for extrapolating micro-news stories to paint deep yet concise assessments of important sector trends.
Too often today, the views of analysts and online commentators are coloured by their own opinions and hubristic agendas. Readers deserve better. Robert paints unvarnished pictures that analyse challenges and opportunities.
Fifteen years in journalism and online communications means a skill for telling a story, often with new digital tools. Today, any company can be a media company – and content can be a better business driver than traditional advertising or marketing.
Robert’s knack is taking information for sharpening and distilling in to messaging that cuts through in today’s increasingly cacophonous and fast-moving information environment.
