Robert Woolliams

Postgraduate Researcher

Bob has been working in communications for over twenty years running a number of UK agencies including leaders in digital communications. Bob was the founder of ‘Consense’ a UK market leader in public consultation for energy and environmental projects, credited with over 200 UK based energy projects.

Since 2014 Bob has been working exclusively in the area of low carbon, building his knowledge base in the environmental science, politics and media skills required to assist in facilitating the UK’s transition to NetZero.

Bob’s PhD is entitled ‘In pursuit of NetZero’ and integrates analysis of policy documents, research papers and media reporting over a 5 year period. The deliverable from this project will be one or more narratives capable of facilitating the UK’s transition to Net Zero, a societal change he considers second only in importance to the industrial revolution.

In addition to policy, research and media channels Bob is also working in education, taking the NetZero message to secondary school audiences.
