Early Life and Education
Robert Wooten watched his parents Shannon and Glenda Park run their beekeeping family business of raising queens, selling nucleus colonies (known as “nucs”) to beginning beekeepers, pollinating local crops, rearing nucs for sale to beginner beekeepers and rearing queens from an early age. He eventually learned the business himself – sometimes sneaking out of the house just so he could ride along on their trucks!
He noted that he frequently received calls from individuals reporting bee infestation in their home and pest control companies would refer him. When he arrived at the hive site, he would secure its queen by using what looks like a hair clip with ventilation holes to capture her and ensure she could breathe.
After this step was completed, he would place the hive back into place and monitor for mites – this way assuring his bees would thrive the following season.
Bee has earned himself a stellar reputation within the pensions industry over his two-decade tenure, becoming one of the foremost commentators on its topic. His campaigns aim to simplifying pensions and benefits in the UK while his famous public speaking skills allow him to share lessons effectively with audiences across Europe.
