Rob Shand

As a former fast jet pilot, Rob came within seconds of an untimely end when he was forced to eject from his burning jet. Years and years of simulation, training, grit and hard work (what we'd now call building resilience) went into ensuring that he knew exactly what to do when 'that' crucial moment came. He moved into business and spent 15 years building an award-winning VC backed travel company where he also learned all about the need for resilience in a turbulent industry living through extraordinary times. Now, in a world that continues to lurch from crisis to crisis, Rob and the team combine their military expertise with over 25 years of commercial acumen in some of the world's riskiest industries (including travel and maritime security and intelligence) to deliver their unique Rigour in Resilience methodology. With a singular mission to make Britain’s organisations more resilient, they help to make businesses strong enough to withstand this chaotic era. Rob Shand, Chief Resilience Officer, Impact Resilience
