"Rob is a consummate Communications professional. He was my Communications Lead for a major IT Transformation Programme costing $47m and impacting 60 countries in across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Rob designed the communications strategy, delivered the stakeholder analysis and prepared all of the communications materials for Executive Leaders, Business, Regional and In-Country teams.
Since then, he has designed and delivered the communications strategy, town halls and digital communications approach for our colleagues in the wider Aon CIO Group Risk. This included engaging colleagues worldwide with our new global operating model. I would not hesitate to recommend Rob for any Communications Lead role and wish him the very best."
Gary Cheema, Global Head of Planning & Business Management, CIO Group - Risk, Aon
"I have worked with Rob for 2+ years, and the insights and alternative approaches he brings to communications of all types, is superb. Rob brought a fresh (and refreshing) approach to many facets of what we have done and achieved in Technology over the last 2 years. We transformed our comms strategy with Rob's help. I would recommend Rob to anyone, any day of the week."
Ian Grayson, Regional CIO - Western EMEA, Aon
"I worked with Rob on a large and complex remediation project. I witnessed his ability to juggle a wide range of stakeholders and priorities with very different needs in often 'impossible' time scales. He was a calming influence, incredibly easy to do business with and the letters he crafted were clear and customer friendly, often a challenge when trying to convey such complex messages. I would be delighted to work with him again."
Claire Lewis, Director, Gold Edge Solutions

"Rob has a tremendous ability to bring people together to accomplish a goal. I've always been impressed with his collegial yet focused leadership style and the ease with which he influences and motivates people. Under his guidance the Region grew and he was able to expand the network for communicators in Europe and the Middle East. Rob's diligence, charm, intelligence and commitment earned him respect at all levels of the organization. I'm proud to have him as a colleague and friend."
