Rob inspired the creation of Vodafone UK’s first-of-a-kind “ReConnect” event, helping women on a career break get back to work. He also drove the introduction of a Northern Women’s Network, engaging that network to support local communities of women and girls. He regularly mentors, and actively seeks out female talent to guide through their career. Rob has spoken passionately about diversity and inclusion at events such as “Northern Power Women Live”, “Guys That Get It” and “The Northern Powerhouse Business Summit” at the Great Exhibition Of The North. In recognition of his work in this area, Rob is the current holder of the Women In Sales Awards (Europe) “Best Male Mentor” Award and the Northern Power Women “Agent Of Change” Award.
