Rob Calder

Founder & Director


Rob has been an active part of Canada’s creative industries for over 20 years. He is known for building impactful events, building audience, & working his butt off. His strengths lie in his years of experience, his ability to connect the right people, his drive to elevate Vancouver & Canada’s spot on the cultural map, & his passion around music & culture. He’s also super fun, full of energy & his rock kick is pretty badass.

In 2010, Rob formed Secret Study to connect brands with talented musicians & artists in order to create meaningful & memorable cultural engagements. Secret Study has since become a go-to full service agency with clients around the globe.

When he’s “not busy,” Rob also serves on the Boards of the Vancouver Music Adaptive Society, Music Heals BC, & the City of Vancouver’s Music City Committee.
