I'm a creator, author, management consultant and publisher, fascinated by what's special about seeing and doing things differently.
As a consultant, I've been advising governments and corporations around the world for the last thirty years in how to deliver something truly different. As a Director of i4intrinsic, we help organisations convert their strategies into reality and track major, game changing shifts in the world around us. I'm a specialist in understanding what's going to stay the same and what needs to change.
As a creator, I'm a founder member of Oblique Media Group. Oblique Media is a model designed to take advantage of the digital changes taking place all around us, by superseding what is redundant in the current publishing industry and replacing it with a more effective, creator owned model. If you're a creator, or want to find out more about this, take a look here.
As an author, I'm a child at heart. I love that excitement that children feel when opening a new book and exploring their imaginations with larger than life characters that help them shape who they will one day become. I'm passionate about the power of reading to create well rounded human beings and am an advocate of anything that will engage youngsters in reading, hence Oblique Media's unashamed initial focus on children.
That's why I created the brand, 'Childhood Mystery from Robert Smithbury'.
I fervently believe in the potential of re-usable worlds in which our stories take place. I hate waste and feel its senseless to just throwaway perfectly re-usable backdrops at the end of just one story. That's why I'm a firm believer in letting others tell their stories in the universes that I've created. Take a look here if you want to find out more about this.
