We hounded Rob on email and Linkedin until he finally agreed to speak to us. We called it the ‘pincer movement’ where we basically gave him no other option but to arrange an initial phone call with us.
Trunki is one of the biggest kids travel brands in the world and we knew that he would be an awesome advisor for us. If you go to an airport today, most kids will be riding or dragging along one of Rob’s suitcases. They are one of the biggest brands to ever come out of Dragons Den without an offer and have since gone on to win more than 100 product and design awards, being stocked all over the world.
We use Rob as a soundboard for any business related problem and his experience will be hugely valuable as we grow.
