“I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside Robert as a member of Narrative Leadership Associates and enjoyed his engaging and effective style of group facilitation. Beware…his passion for story and it’s power to change the world is contagious!”

Dr Geoff Mead, Director, Centre for Narrative Leadership

“Robert is a skilled and convincing advocate for the role of story in shaping our world. My own experience of being in one of his workshops was to realise that in re-telling part of my life, where I overcame a challenge, I gained a deeper understanding of the processes at work and my own agency. Good learning which I now apply to other parts of my life.”

Isabel Carlisle, Education Co-ordinator, Transition Network

“A lot of the content was counter-intuitive, especially to academics used to giving very laborious proofs. I think this course ought to be compulsory for all Graduate School of Life Sciences students.”

Researcher, Cambridge University

“Robert is a skilled and thoughtful trainer. He combines a deep knowledge of his field of expertise with an empathy for the group he is working with. His creativity and intellectual engagement from planning to delivery means his workshops have been extremely well received by our team.”

Robbie Semple, Executive Director, Worthwhile

“I was not sharing my research, I was sharing my feelings – and while my passion is research, rather than feelings, this, being about emotions, felt like the best talk I have ever given.”

“I loved the way Robert facilitated the course – the design of the day was great and he has a lovely inclusive and enabling manner. This meant that people were gently guided further and further out of their comfort zones without really noticing it, and encouraged to take risks. In other words they were supported into their zone of proximal development and encouraged to ‘risk on purpose’…I learnt so much in terms of concepts and ideas and experienced some profound light bulb moments. My mind is buzzing with new possibilities and for me that is a sign of a great workshop.”

Dr Belinda Hopkins, Director, Transforming Conflict
