Jordi Robert Ribes, Ph.D


Jordi Robert-Ribes (PhD) enables effective collaboration within organisations. He inspires professional connections through his method, Connecting Perspectives. His vision has allowed him to work in various disciplines in different countries.

For over fifteen years he lived in Australia and France working in sectors as diverse as government, consulting, scientific research, telecommunications operators and venture capital. He was responsible for obtaining capital for Australian companies, and was R&D Manager at Singapore Telecom Optus in Australia.
He was advisor for Business Innovation to the Prime Minister of Andorra, in which role he promoted FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) and created several instruments to help local SMEs grow and expand internationally. He was successful with the creation of a governmental corporation (ADI S.A.) as the instrument to promote both innovation and FDI.

He currently is a director in the Board of Directors of a VC (Venture Capital) fund based in Barcelona, London and Boston.

Dr. Robert-Ribes coined the term “team bridging” to symbolise the development of relationships between members of different teams or departments.

He has developed his own methodology, Connecting Perspectives, which helps organisations achieve better results through effective collaboration between diverse teams. It features in his book Connecting Forward as well as in his hands-on performances (ExperienTalks™) delivered at companies such as Movistar, Thomson Reuters and Johan Cruyff Foundation, among others, and taught at internationally renowned universities such as London School of Economics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Sydney University and IE Business School.

He holds a PhD in Signal Processing (INPG, Grenoble, France) and a postgraduate diploma in Financial Management (Deakin University, Melbourne, Australia). He also participated in executive education programs at Harvard Business School and the Australian Venture Capital Association.
