About

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialisation is for insects.”

Robert Heinlein: The Notebooks of Lazurus Long

Hi and welcome.  My name’s Robin and I facilitate personal change and business growth for creative people.  I’ve worked in the creative industries for over twenty years and in that time I’ve done a huge variety of jobs, from running a theatre company, acting and directing to working as a roadie in the music industry; from developing, programming and licensing software to graphic design and article writing.  I’ve had a life long passion for learning and a willingness to say “yes” to new experiences that has lead me on some merry adventures!

In parallel I have pursued a fascination with the psychology of freedom and since 1996 I have run a private practise coaching  people to overcome fear and trauma in their life and recognise their natural gift, to be the author of their own destiny.  I’ve also acted as a consultant to companies including:  Shell Exploration and Production, Proctor and Gamble, Legal and General, Damovo, Brighton and Hove Council, Glaxo-Smith Kline, NHS Executive …

I’m passionate about creativity because the more I look at the world around us the more I believe we have to come up with some better ideas:  better ways of managing our consumption and protecting bio-diversity; better ways of providing justice and equality and a decent standard of living for everyone; better ways of managing our economic life and balancing our work and leisure.

It’s individual creativity that will provide those ideas and it’s communication and collaboration that will put those ideas into action, so that’s what I focus on teaching: creativity, communication and collaboration skills.

You can read what other people have said about me on the Testimonials page or find out about public trainings and working with me personally.

This blog is organised into a number of different sections.

The journal is a diary of ideas, thoughts and inspirations.  There’s news and events of interest to creative people and tips on creativity, communication and collaboration.

Enjoy yourself.

Robin
