Rob is Director of Cultural Insights at Fiftyfive5, a research consultancy based in Sydney. After completing a vaccinology PhD at Oxford uni, Rob transitioned to branding and strategy in London. His research has swept him from the living rooms of middle England to the wild spaces of sunburnt country. Wielding a semiotic scalpel, he’s unravelled the fabric of consumer, culture and brand, unlocking growth strategies for a cupboard full of household names. On his days off, he draws mermaids with his daughter and makes Jamie’s 15 minute meals in 150 minutes.
