Robert has a bachelor´s degree in business administration and a master´s in law. He started his career in the Netherlands and built his expertise over 18 years at Unilever. He worked in challenging marketing and business positions in various European countries as well as in South Africa and in Brazil. Robert knows from experience the massive positive impact on both business results and society of really putting people first in brands and teams, and is a true ambassador for humanizing business in the widest sense of the term. He loves exploring new cultures, leaving the beaten track. He has spent months traveling India and Malaysia; he has climbed Aconcagua (the highest mountain in the Americas at about 7,000 meters); he has spent weeks with indigenous families in the jungle of Colombia; and he loves to take the more adventurous routes when skiing, hiking, or diving. As a student, he already felt strongly attracted by the positive spirit, culture, beauty, and opportunities of Latin America, and his stay in Brazil made him decide to make this beautiful country his home.
Fernanda was born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil and moved to London in 2016 to further her career as a researcher and decoder. In the UK she worked in projects across the world including Europe, Asia and Africa – and (of course) she never stopped working on projects closer to home in Latin America.
Her passion is understanding the changing behaviours of early childhood and how this can help people throughout their lives. Her experience with Innate Motion has largely involved leading projects for Unilever activist brands that are closely related to this cause. This includes helping girls from Brazilian favelas to avoid early-life pregnancy, developing a campaign to dispel transgender stereotypes and teenagehood bullying in the UK.
Fernanda is currently studying for an MSc in Behaviour Change at UCL focused on health, to further the impact she has in this important field. By learning and developing the latest behaviour change methodologies, she plans to influence organizations to invest in behaviour change programmes to improve people’s health and well-being.
