Rob Kirby | Founder of People People | Executive Coach | Facilitator | Speaker

Home educated until the age of ten, Robert found life at school a little difficult. Six years of anxiety and quietness followed and whilst he didn’t quite know how to navigate social circles, he found a passion for acting. He soon realised that the skill of an actor could be stolen and used outside the rehearsal room until believed – a little confidence, a voice that could be heard and an energy that starts to engage people. Friends were found and sense of self gained. Hungry to learn more, he followed in the steps of Hugh Bonneville, Daniel Craig, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Helen Mirren by joining the National Youth Theatre and furthered his training at London based Drama School Rose Bruford (Pat from Eastenders went there!). Certain at this point that the skillset of a good actor is the ability to communicate superbly and wanting to spread that far and wide, he founded People People with the support of the Prince’s Trust in 2017 to do just that. He trained as an Executive Coach with Henley Business School and has created the People People Way, fusing psychology, acting tools and coaching principles to partner with people to enhance their full communicative potential.
