Rob Piper is a self-confessed people-person. For almost two decades, his natural flair for communication, employee engagement and customer service saw him excel within Sefton’s Education Authority. Tragically, in 2010, government funding cuts brought an abrupt end to his career. Determined to turn things around, Rob set out in search of his next opportunity and, in 2011, Poppies Liverpool was born. Initially craving more security and the chance to put his skills to good use, Rob’s business now affords the freedom and rewards that have quite literally changed his life.
