About Robin

Robin Miles - MEng (Hons) MICE CEng GAICD

I specialise in collaboration, strategy, leadership and strategy. I have a diverse background bringing unique learnings and experiences; from growing up in South East London, undertaking development work in Africa, working in the Armed Forces, leading international major infrastructure projects, chairing not for profit boards, to executive roles in Government and the Consulting industry.

Negotiation, Collaboration, and Positive Influence are recognised as critical skills in every walk of life, but few people actually know how to do it or do it well. With a direct heritage from the Harvard Negotiation Project, I train with the world’s best in bringing this theory into practice and continue to lecture on this subject at Deakin University.

People have different work styles and personalities and understanding how to work with these enables collaborative work to thrive, teams to achieve and individuals to gain satisfaction. Having two kids with special needs and autism has given me even greater personal insight and skills in this area, as autistic people fundamentally think and see things differently to ‘the norm’. I believe diversity represents not just differences to be dealt with, but strengths brought to the table.

In 2013 my wife and I founded Inspireme consultancy. Inspireme allows us to do what we are most passionate about, assisting organisations and individuals to achieve and go beyond the best outcomes they believe possible.

Key strengths include:

  • Diverse experience having worked in the private, government, not for profit and military sectors
  • Visionary inspirational leadership
  • Strategic foresight and strategy development to drive business performance
  • Exceptional team management skills in developing and maintaining high performing teams
  • Advanced negotiation and influencing skills utilising an “interests based” approach
  • Relationship management having a systematic collaborative approach 
  • Skilled in setting and enabling achievement of break through results

I am the Chairperson of the Committee for Geelong Leadership Sub-Committe as well as a Board Member of the Committee. I am an Alumni of the Williamson Community Leadership Program and a regular contributor to the programs develivered by Leadership Victoria.
