Rob is one of the most tenacious and experienced SEO professionals I have ever worked with. His knowledge of his trade is not only extensive, but crucially, always up to date. I've seen him spearhead fantastic results through SEO and his friendly, good-humoured approach is always a pleasure to engage with. Rob will go above, beyond and then some to deliver excellent results, and I trust his judgement and expertise whole-heartedly. A real asset to our digital marketing strategy and a good laugh along the way.

We hired Rob as Interim Head of SEO for continuity and whilst we waited to on-board our permanent solution and couldn't recommend Rob highly enough. Rob was fully engaged, took the time and interest to get up to speed quickly and had a wide remit including leading client calls/meetings, new business and assisting with team training and development. Rob's ideas, creative solutions and can-do attitude have had a positive impact on both clients and team in the short space of time he's been here. Rob also has a commercial aptitude that has helped turn the theoretical into the practical allowing us to involve relevant business solutions with outcomes to clients. Given that he's only been with us for a relatively short period of time, hopefully, the above demonstrates that he gets his hands dirty! Would highly recommend!
