Biography

Robert enjoys providing entertaining and informative guided walks. He started his business career training as a chartered accountant and first worked in a Georgian cul-de-sac in the City. Whilst his career took him to many places, he believes that nothing beats the ‘Square Mile’ for its vibrancy, history, its people and their stories and its cutting edge architecture.
