She also held the role of CEO for the global media brand Monocle which launched four years ago and is now known as a design bible. She also produced Thomas Hamel's book, Residence which quickly became the benchmark for interior design in Australia. She says design journalism and styling have been her passions for over 20 years.

Today, Robyn works as a senior management executive consulting to the design industry. She also provides services in project management, leadership, strategy and financial management to senior corporate clients and CEO's in government and private sectors.

She is currently the chairman of Northern Territory Tourism and is a councillor for The Australian National Maritime Museum. Robyn is a member of Chief Executive Women and the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
