Robert Lawrence

Robert Lawrence
Robert's background, after studying geography at Liverpool University, featured a stint in retail management and then both grocery & pharmacy sales. A significant change over to natural supplements in the early 90’s has lead to a career in healthfood sales over various parts of the UK ever since, from building long term relationships with many individual retailers to running sales teams and major accounts. Family, especially grandchildren, currently keep him busy as does walking his young Labrador as widely as possible! A lover of most science-fiction, he is “between motorbikes” at the moment.
