“Rob has always provided me with sound political advice, which has been so helpful when starting the Democratic Reform Party. His broad knowledge of the political spectrum, mixed with practical experience helps to keep me focused on the right path.”


Karl John, Leader of the Democratic Reform Party

“Robert has played a pivotal role for Democratic Reform by understanding the organisation’s objectives and applying practical methods used by modern businesses e.g. Lean Management.
