Robert Blood

Founder Chairman, Sigwatch

Robert is considered one of Europe’s leading experts on NGOs and activism. He was inspired to create SIGWATCH after a career advising companies on managing reputational risk, where he observed how much more effective campaigning groups were at strategizing and communicating than the businesses and governments they were opposing. Robert has built SIGWATCH into the world’s leading research and strategy consultancy for understanding the impact of activism on business, and for quantifying campaigning activity over time to predict emerging issues and the potential for societal change.
