An award-winning author and Prize Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, Robert Rowland Smith went on to become a partner in a London advisory firm. He has worked with the executive teams and boards of numerous organisations from global blue chips to start ups.

It is this combination of the philosophical and the practical that makes him unique.

Robert has subsequently built a reputation as a leading practitioner of systemic constellations.

Book Robert as a speaker

Robert is a regular speaker at public and private events, addressing a wide range of topics that include philosophy, psychology, politics, and business strategy. 

"I have had the pleasure of hearing Robert speak at many corporate events on a wide range of topics. He offers fresh perspectives on important issues, and always does so with great clarity and good humour. He is a first call for new insights on complex issues. I would recommend him without reservation."

Robert convenes an extraordinary depth and richness of worlds: philosophy, psychology, business, government and even spirituality have their place; I see this reflected in the fascinating variety of clients drawn to his work, from business leaders and consultants to artists and therapists - each of them magnetised by Robert's synthesis and integration of the rational and the emotional, the everyday and the miraculous.
