Next up: Spotlight on our expert Marketing Capability Director Rob Hancock
As promised, here is our next team introduction of the series.
This week our spotlight is on Rob Hancock.
Passionate about business skill-building, nothing motivates Rob more than to see people fired up with enthusiasm to learn new approaches and apply these techniques to drive growth. Rob has worked in both small and large companies; from a Birmingham start up through to championing the Häagen Dazs brand globally. He has had exposure to varied commercial challenges in markets all around the world including McVitie’s, Diageo and InterContinental Hotels.
Energised by facilitating people through genuine live business problems, coaching and guiding them to solutions, Rob is consistently scored highly by clients and attendees alike as an engaging, thought-provoking and energetic moderator.
Rob spends his spare time being a compassionate neighbour by visiting terminally ill patients, volunteering for The Princess Alice Hospice in Epsom. He is also a parish councillor at St Mary le Bow, home of arguably London’s most famous bells.
Here, Rob shares a little more about who he is:
If you’ve learned anything in your career/ life so far it’s…
I have more to learn (and it’s fun) but my advice to you is follow your passion because there is a direct correlation between what you are good at and what you enjoy.
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
There are things to do and I’m ready to do them! I’m an evening not a morning person, but when you hit my awake button, I am fired up and ready to go.
What do you bring to the Cormis team?
Grey hairs, a fat belly and a few wrinkles (both physical and methodological). Joking aside, I have rather more years than I can count in both practical commercial experience and capability development and delivery.
Tell us something people may not know about you
I have run over 500 workshops in more than 50 countries to over 10,000 delegates and I’ve got all the air miles to go with it.
What was the last book you read?
I don’t read many books (no patience) – just the Sunday Times, and that takes me all week! Given that I travel so much, I take my kindle with me everywhere as there are always some great podcasts available from the BBC or Ted. My recommendation is Predatory Thinking by Dave Trott.
What is your personal mantra?
Just do it (with apologies to Nike).
