Robert Blood, founder and managing director Robert was inspired to create SIGWATCH as a result of working at board director level of the public relations and issue management consultancies Fleishman-Hillard UK and before that, the Quentin Bell Organisation. During this time he was increasingly being consulted by multinationals and industry and professional associations on the impact of the emerging political force that was activism and NGOs. Since then he has built SIGWATCH into the world's leading research and strategy consultancy on NGOs and campaigning groups. Today SIGWATCH has dozens of clients across the world and a global network of researchers and analysts.
Robert is a highly regarded trainer on predicting and managing issue campaigns and has developed several popular workshops on the topic. He is also a visiting lecturer to undergraduate and postgraduate courses at several UK universities and a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Communications Management. He has a degree in physics from Durham University, England.

Reached at his office in Germany, Sigwatch founder and managing director Robert Blood said that successful companies figure out how to "go beyond NGOs" in addressing environmental issues or other concerns, in essence preempting confrontation and a potential public relations quagmire. But this often means reevaluating core positions or coming to some kind of compromise. "Our methodology is based on the idea that NGOs make the weather," Blood told me. Understanding what NGOs or activists do is crucial to a corporation's livelihood, Blood says.
Given that Blood advises companies on how to engage with NGOs, I asked him how Sigwatch addresses climate change with clients in the fossil fuel industry. "It's the elephant in the room," he said.
