I have worked with Rob on a number of occasions over the years. He has always proved to be a tower of strength, not just in terms of training for the television but also helping sift through swathes of complex material, digesting and refining it, and making it capable of presentation in an intelligible and succinct manner. He has a tremendous ability to take even the most intricate issues and boil them down to the essential basics, which is of real assistance to those who have become too close to an issue and cannot see the wood for the trees. His understanding of the political background, and an instinctive feel for public opinion, brings real added value, as does his willingness to tell you when you’ve got it wrong – something advisers are not always good at.
