I have known Robin for over 10 years, both socially and in business. Having recognised Robin’s ability to quickly connect well with other people, and to carry out a wide variety of roles in business with efficiency and integrity, I was delighted when Robin agreed to join me in my new business venture. While seeking to bring my invention to commercial reality over the last three years, I have benefited hugely from Robin’s ability to scrutinise every aspect of developing my business plans, aswell as being a shrewd advisor negotiating our way through the complexities of R&D. I can trust Robin to give an intelligent, honest opinion, often spotting salient issues which I might have otherwise missed. He contributes in an encouraging and sensitive way.
