Words That Work Why not share your enterprise challenge with Robert Ashton? He understands, cares and above all delivers real results! When our hopes of a new school were dashed, we hired Robert.

Robert Ashton the barefoot entrepreneur

“Social enterprises need social entrepreneurs. This book will help you decide if you’ve got what it takes to be one.” – Peter Couchman, Chief Executive, Plunkett Foundation
