Robert is passionate about identifying the working strength of all the year 11 students within the local state schools particularly in his town of origin, Stevenage.

Uniqueness has worked closely with the Princes Trust, YMCA and the Hertfordshire Police and sponsored Tony Franklin's not for profit organisation, Time2Change who specifically work with prolific & persistent offenders.

In 1989 aged 23, Robert founded the award winning specialist global polythene supplier, Stevenage Packaging Limited.
31 years on, the company has demonstrated 30 years consecutive net profit and sales growth, whilst never making a redundancy & employing three family generations.

Robert and his company have won a number of regional awards: New Business Enterprise Award, Against All Odds Award, Employee of the Year Award and Robert has won Business Person of the Year Award.

Robert acquired Happy Mechanics Limited in 2010 - a specialist accountancy practice and in its first year under his leadership the company has achieved 2,250% growth, making it one of the fastest growing companies in the UK in 2011.

"One boy deeply disaffected almost disengaged completely in terms of attendance but with the potential to do something in his life was genuinely moved by your life. The boy who received the prize (for which much thanks) has stayed with us over these last few months when likelihood was that he would have disappeared"

"I think the work you do with ex-offenders trying to make good out of a bad situation is very unique."

  • The Independent Opticians Annual Convention
    Rob Stewart, our keynote was inspirational, grasping the intricacies of a complex industry like optics and developing the sort of insight he did takes a special kind of skill. Doing that and holding an audience is pure genius. If you ever get the chance to hear Rob, take it.
