What I do
Robbie is a Programme Manager in the People Powered Results team at Nesta’s Health Lab. He is working on 100 day innovation programmes in Elective Care.
Before joining Nesta, Robbie spent four years running the social enterprise Worthwhile, which he founded. Worthwhile creates the conditions for young people to do their best work in social impact. He is a board member at On Purpose, the leadership development programme for those looking to build a new economy. He also spent four years with Rolls-Royce across the UK and USA, has worked as a journalist in Liberia, as well as numerous voluntary projects in the UK, Ireland and India.
Robbie has an MSc in Organisational Psychology from the London School of Economics and a BA in Economics and Psychology from Trinity, Dublin.
Outside of work, Robbie spends his time watching and taking part in far too much sport, cooking and failing spectacularly at improvised comedy.
