- Hear Robbie’s honest reflection on his struggles growing up in a traditional boarding school in Scotland - wrestling with his homosexuality and the setback of glandular fever, which derailed his passion for sport and sense of self;
- Learn from his conviction to be his authentic self and the workplace discrimination setbacks he has faced on this journey;
- Be inspired by how he has nurtured his entrepreneurial spirit and successfully built several businesses throughout his career.

Robbie’s Investing for Life story is one that will encourage you to reflect on your own journey – how setbacks can become your strengths, and why embodying your authentic self can in fact help you stand out from the crowd and access opportunities only you can.
