What some say about Rob
Having worked with Rob, I have no hesitation in recommending him. His management skills are second to none, with clear focus and the skills needed to get things done. He also has first-class people skills which make others around him want to get the job done too.
- Aaron Powell, Chief Digital Officer at NHS Blood and Transplant
I worked with Rob in the Middle East on a change management assignment and continue to this day to be impressed with his transformation management skills and international business acumen. He is a highly organized, inspiring and motivated executive who has a laser-sharp focus on getting to positive results.
- Gabriel Schild, Executive Consulting Partner at Verizon
Rob was the Program Manager in a major transformation for a client in the Middle East; the activity was challenging due to the short time frame of the program and cultural aspects involved, however Rob did a great job managing the relations with different stakeholders, senior management and ensuring the delivery team with the right conditions to perform effectively.
- Diego Prina, Management Consultant at PwC
Rob and his team of associates led the transformation of the Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) virtualization programme. The programme management expertise that his firm brought to us was a major success factor in ADEC's ability to transition from an out-dated server room to a state-of-the-art data centre in less than six months.
- Walid Nsouli, PgM Manager at Abu Dhabi Education Council
Rob made a great contribution to one of our most critical and challenging programmes by drawing on his immense knowledge and experiences to construct a comprehensive and detailed plan, and making sure that we all stuck to it. He handled the inevitable dramas with calm professionalism and clarity of thought - always finding a way through them, while finding time for everyone.
- Jon Kidd, Former CEO at Musanada
Rob has a wealth of experience of delivering complex transformation programmes while providing the necessary leadership skills to inspire all those working with and for him. He always acts in a calm and professional way but is highly driven. He was a major loss to our team. I would not think twice of recommending him
- James Cusworth, EMEA Programme Manager at HP
I was fortunate to sit in on his programme workshops whilst at Musanada and found the sessions to be incredibly engaging and interesting. Rob is passionate about customer focus. He is dedicated to his work from the inception of a project to the completion stages.
- Tashfin Shafique, Managing Director at Emerge
Rob is a detail-conscious programme and project manager. Having seen him operate in a very challenging environment, I can say that his mediation and consensus-building skills are of the highest order. He is outcome focused and completely dependable. I am happy to work him on any project.
