Robert Catton currently works in sustainability and technology-development for a large-scale, global, telecommunications company. Having initially studied business management, Robbie has since enjoyed acting as both an internal and external business consultant, and more recently as an advisor, founder, director and trustee of a range of social enterprises and charities. In particular, he is currently a Trustee/Director for the Keystone Development Trust, (which raises money from a portfolio of socially and environmentally-sustainable businesses, and uses this money for the good of local communities and the environment), and a Incubator for fledgling social-enterprises set-up jointly by the UK Government’s Cabinet Office, Judge Business School in Cambridge, and the Keystone Development Trust. Over the last three years, Robbie has since studied entrepreneurship and sustainability on a part-time basis, and is currently engaged in post-graduate research into the ways in which technology can assist in achieving social sustainability (including the areas of health, care of the elderly and education). Outside of work, Robbie enjoys running, rowing, surfing, reading, playing the organ and piano, and a number of adventure sports including skiing, snow-boarding, kite-surfing, mountaineering and climbing.
