It was a great pleasure to work with Robert, and not just because he achieved great coverage for our product in UK national media. He is always full of bright ideas and always sees the project as a part of business. He is very straight to the point and specific in everything he does, which makes cooperation with him extremely effective.

Robert generously shared his PR expertise and contacts to help raise the profile of Child In Need India (CINI). He was a pleasure to work with and helped fill the gaps in our knowledge about how best to get CINI's name out there. Having access to someone with his extensive experience in the PR and Communications field has been invaluable to the charity.

Robert White worked at Vodafone’s subsidiary ipulsys b.v. from July 2000 to end of July 2001. He reported directly to me as PR Manager when I was Vice President Communications at ipulsys b.v. and I reported to the CEO, Peter Glasbeek.
Robert was responsible for all PR and media relations activities. His role was to manage the reputation and profile of the company, as well as to support me in internal communications, marketing and investor relations. He won speaker placements and a major award from Billing magazine.
He also achieved some major PR coups with several articles across UK and Dutch national newspapers. Robert proved himself an adept communicator, was consistent in delivering high-quality results and demonstrated both passion and competence in all of his communications activities, including managing and reporting a budget, a complex calendar of activities, and PR agencies in two countries. He developed a strong and nuanced understanding of the sensitivities of PR and media relations, that helped achieve great results in coverage and in the development of ipulsys’ profile in the UK and in Europe. Moreover, he is one of the most well-read people I have ever met, a real absorber of facts, and a great storyteller, full of anecdotes and experiences – a true communicator.
Robert, along with all other staff – including myself – were made redundant when Vodafone’s acquisition of Mannesmann ipulsys was then sold off to Warburg Pincus and, essentially, asset stripped and sold off in parts to other businesses. The loss of all investment funding put the company into receivership. Robert comes with my highest recommendation.

Robert worked for FxPro as Head of PR for an eight-month interim contract. He participated in some major company projects, such as rewriting our website, marketing campaigns, market research, advertising, press releases and, in certain cases, he acted as spokesperson on behalf of the directors. He managed a team of five. Robert also continued a pre-existing relationship with Citigate Dewe Rogerson and helped in the appointment of a new agency (Financial Dynamics) and a media monitoring agency (Durrants). His contribution to all areas of company activity in which he was involved has been much appreciated. I believe that Robert will make a valuable addition to any organisation that he may join and I recommend him without hesitation.

Robert White worked with Action Global Communications as a senior PR consultant and head of business development from January until September 2009.
My team and I found him to be extremely diligent and conscientious. He was also versatile across a range of demanding projects for our 40+ office network. Robert showed a real passion in his work and achieved outstanding results, demonstrating a great range of PR and business skills.
I am sorry to see him move on to new consultancy opportunities, but I have no doubt we will work together in the future. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him to a senior position in PR and/or business development.

Robert demonstrated a strong ability to think strategically about business growth and how a flawlessly executed communications and media plan would be critical to helping us achieve our goals. He did so through the media, in white papers and various board level presentations, and as a result was able to positively influence the direction of the firm.
He consistently displayed an ability to manage change in a fast paced, dynamic industry environment. His ability to create strategic frameworks and communication plans were an outgrowth of his highly developed leadership and listening skills.

Jan Altink, Global Communications Consultant, and Former Director of Corporate Affairs, International,
In 2009 I had the pleasure of working with Robert in Cyprus for three months. Robert is a consultant’s consultant and professional at all times. He’s someone who cares deeply about his work and is passionate about doing a first class job both for the team and clients.
As well as this, he takes a very sympathetic approach towards his colleagues’ needs and knows how to motivate a team through kind spirit. Anyone that works with Robert will benefit in numerous ways, not least of which from his professional integrity and strategic approach.
It’s not all seriousness though and he can joke on with the rest of them. He is a pleasure to work with and I hope our paths meet once more to do so again in the future.
