Thank you Chuck.  Aren't all financial adviser's motivated by integrity, good intent and proactive caring toward the client and their interests?  Financial adviser's are not motivated by their self-interests, are they? 😉 Continue to make a difference!

Prosper by Earning Relationship Capital (RC)
Trusted expert challenging business leaders to adopt open standards for the capture, measurement, and utilization of Relationship Capital (RC).

Rob is a recognized thought leader and advocate of Relationship Capital (“RC”). He has played a significant role in the creation of industry standards and best practices for the capture of RC.

As a master connector with 25 years of large-account new-business development experience, Rob has generated sales at Standard of Trust, Capgemini Financial Services, Headstrong, Keane, Romac International and IBM.

Rob’s experience resulted in a passion: helping companies build and maintain their online reputations to increase sales and profits.

He founded Standard of Trust in 2009 to deliver on this passion.

Relationship Capital (RC) is an accounting of the interactions between “entities”, including people, businesses and products. Interactions include Commitments (actions) and Perceptions (thoughts and feelings). Entities earn RC by keeping Commitments and obtaining positive Perceptions. They receive a Relationship Capital Point (RCP) for each fulfilled Commitment, and an RCP, or a fraction thereof, for each position Perception obtained. RCPs are deposited in an RC Account under the strict control of its owner entity.

The objectives of RC are to provide a common vocabulary for relationship interactions and to account for the interactions as they occur. Accordingly, RC uses a “standard-in-the-cloud” platform to enable entities to engage in interactions and capture RCPs in near real time. The platform is provided by RNIA, an independent body.

Standard of Trust helps clients capture RC and apply it to leverage their good reputations online. The firm was founded in 2010. To learn more, please visit
