Rob set up Emphasis in 1998, after a career in magazine
and journal editing. He moved into publishing after
working in medical research and local government.
He also spent four years at the Consumers' Association, where he was
managing editor of Health Which?.
He is passionate about written communication, and can't read a document
without looking for a way to make it better (a sometimes troubling affliction,
especially for his colleagues).
He is now managing director and principal consultant at Emphasis.
