Great Neck resident Robert Lipkowitz enjoyed a long career in advertising, where his clients included Canon, American Express, Microsoft, and Miura. He is also a communication and public speaking consultant. Writing under his professional name, Bob Lipp, he has authored several books on the subject, including Speaking Skills In A Digital World.
But his biggest success has come as an author. He writes both adult and children’s books, or as he puts it, books for “ages 1 to 100,” adding that they are all “completely different and cross multi-genres.”
His children’s books concern the saga of “Mr. Lumpy.” The series includes up to 11 books.
Here is a summary of his most recent publications:
