CEO. Author. Commentator.
Robert is an expert in communications, leadership and trust and an advisor to global business leaders and organisations. He spent 25 years at the top of the PR industry – co-founding legendary consumer brands consultancy, JCPR, and ending-up as European Chief Executive of Edelman – before deciding, in 2012, that “it was time to call bullshit on the bullshit industry of spin”. Since his epiphany, Robert has been developing new models of communications, based on activism, participation, accountability and dissent.
Robert is the author of Trust Me, PR is Dead (2015) and Citizen Renaissance (2008); founder of Jericho Chambers; Visiting Professor at Cass Business School, London; and a punchy public speaker and commentator. He has been trying to make the world a better place since the age of eight.
