Trained as a direct marketer who embraced Digital early on, Robert Solomon is known for his expertise as a brand strategist and new business developer. He also is a commercial writer, published author, and expert speaker and workshop leader, who also is certified as an organizational and executive coach, particularly skilled in job search.
