An engaging, passionate speaker, Dr Bill Robb has been assisting organisations and their people meet the challenges of clarifying strategy, improving productivity, overcoming morale problems and turning around failing projects and departments for over twenty-five years.

He has a strong academic background (two masters and two doctoral degrees) but his extensive expertise and wisdom has been hard-won working with management teams in organisations ranging from large oil majors, drilling companies and shipping companies to medium size businesses in the fields of engineering, construction, law, education and accountancy.

His speaking engagements have taken him to United Kingdom, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Cyprus, Dubai, Bahrain, Canada, USA, West Africa, South Africa and Uruguay.

Robb’s speaking style is engaging and interactive. He knows that business success depends on every employee doing the best they can do. Rather than lecture, he offers the audience case studies and gets them to think of solutions to particular challenges. With light-hearted humour, he encourages people to face up to the difficult decisions that often have to be made and to then implement practical straightforward techniques. He makes sure his presentations are directly relevant to what your organisation does and the issues your people are facing now. He does his homework.

What makes his wisdom unique and his presentations a great success is his dedication to simplicity, summarised by his quote, “Nothing is complicated! It’s just that some problems take more effort to understand, and we sometimes (consciously or unconsciously) make things complicated.”

Robb has been published extensively on safety and productivity.

He has tremendous enthusiasm and builds great rapport with the audience. This is no easy task, bearing in mind the groups can number up to sixty and many people not having a full grasp of English. He puts the message across in a simple but powerful way

Bill did a marvellous job. The agenda was packed with important information and the audience comprised senior managers from at least twenty companies and some government officials. Bill skilfully kept the event moving – keeping to time – without making the speakers feel rushed.
