What he does

Bob engages as a consultant, speaker and facilitator for corporations, nonprofits and foundations across the United States and around the world.

What he says

Communication works when everything is centered around the user.

What we say

Bob takes the complex and makes it understandable. A consultant, writer, advisor, mentor and more, he has a gift for capturing the spirit and detail of a complicated concept, and is known for his talents in leading a group through (sometimes transformative!) dialogue to find new understanding.

What he is inspired by

Bob finds inspiration in helping groups find the point where all their members' aspirations intersect. His gift is creating a frame that holds everything that needs to be held, and helping it make sense to others.


Bob has a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Master of Public Administration degree from Western Michigan University. He joined Williams Group in 1984 following five years in local government.
