Testimonials for Robert Tighe

Robert’s Origin Story sessions for me at Weave were very well received. His Origin Story provides a very useful tool by which business leaders can share their personal stories of background, learning and experience to increase customer & staff engagement. It’s power is rooted in the sharing of an authentic personal story or experience that shows the human qualities and experiences of the presenter and grows connection and understanding. I consider it a powerful new tool whose quality and potential has already been identified by practitioners in leadership development.
