Sam Robinson

Sam Robinson

Dentsu Head of Growth Enablement
I started working life following the Billy Connolly mould of working in a shipyard, in my case as an electrician. Fancied getting into sales as at that time you got a free car! Had a successful selling career with Canon and Xerox before moving into training as part of the Xerox Management Development programme. I started to build a philosophy of performance under pressure whilst at ARM in Cambridge and went of to develop these principles during a 7-year stint at OpenText. This culminated in the development of the IMPACT performance programme. For the last 3 years I’ve built up the enablement function at Sage in the UK&I and Africa Middle East. The drive here was to make enablement a data driven business function not a training function.
