After a 20 year career as a Royal Marines Officer, during which time he completed a degree and a Masters in the “Design of Information Systems” (from a business perspective), joined the Institute of Directors and the British Computer Society, Robin entered the Defence Industry and then the Information Security space, organically growing a consulting business from almost zero to £1.2M in 5 years, during which time he was instrumental in defining the Vision and Mission for the Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers and drafting their MOA and getting this trade body off the ground and established.

Choosing to move on at the start of the recession was always going to be interesting, and a couple of years later after a family bereavement lead to a change of focus, he established his own consulting business focused on start-up and SME businesses, covering all aspects from Vision and Mission, organisational structures, business plans, definition of appropriate technology, (including web, e-mail and social media) and marketing.  He hates accounts and admin!  More recently he has become a director of Rock 2 Recovery CIC, and established an Event Management Company, Number 300 Ltd.
