Rob Forkan


Founder of the Gandy Brothers & Inspirational Speaker.

Rob Forkan is the co-Founder of the Gandy Brothers with his brother Paul and is an inspirational business speaker and speaker on overcoming adversity.

On Boxing Day 2004, Rob and Paul Forkan lives were forever changed when they tragically lost their parents in the devastating Tsunami that hit Sri Lanka.

Raised to believe they should do more in life than just exist, they were instilled with the notion to enjoy life and to take more adventures.

They wanted to honour their parents and Gandy’s was born.

The brand’s mission was to stop people passively letting life go by when they could be doing more. Rob and Paul founded Gandys in order to support their Orphans for Orphans foundation. Not only do Rob and Paul donate 10 per cent of their profits to helping underprivileged children that are affected by the Tsunami by building children’s homes across the world, they also have 3 stores in central London and multiple pop ups throughout the year.

They describe their store as ‘a place for travellers alike to come together and share experiences and stories and find the perfect pieces to accompany them on their next adventure.’



Overcoming Adversity


We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.

Matthew Fisher and I have worked together for many number of years. I have always found Matt to be honest, good natured and willing to work hard always carefully selecting the best appearances to suit my personality and lifestyle. The work Matthew has delivered for me over the years has varied from schools, colleges, attending film premiers, guest speaking  to name a few all of which I have lots of memories and thoroughly enjoyed.
