Rob's a passionate advocate of the need to disrupt traditional forms of leadership and management development with individualised, context specific and application based coaching solutions.
His perceptive leadership acumen has been published in two successful books; The Naked Executive, (Prentice-Hall 2001) and The High Wire Executive, (Penguin 2004), which he coauthored.
