He strongly believes that a successful quality strategy needs to expand its boundaries beyond traditional ‘testing’ phases and into areas such as business relationship management, delivery working practices, vendor management and application implementations.

Rob possesses excellent communications skills and has demonstrable experience of working closely with in house technology teams, business user teams, board level steering groups and third party vendors.
