Movember Interview - Robert Dunne
Rob Dunne is New Zealand's first Movember Manager and keen on making the charity have a great year in 2011.
What made you decide to participate in Movember?

Robert Dunne

I first got involved with Movember when I was on my OE in the UK, really enjoyed and was converted into a Mo Bro. Since then I lost both grandparents to cancer sooner than expected and it has made me appreciate that the cause is extremely relevant. I started as manager of Movember NZ in April this year, living and breathing the cause only reinforces that relevance.
What’s the longest period of time you’ve gone without shaving your face?

Robert Dunne

When I started the roll in April I kicked it off with a Mo for the First month even though it wasn’t Movember. I then shaved but every time I went to see a Mo Bro or Sista they would comment doesn’t Mr Movember need to have a Mo all year round! I thought you are right I should, so Movember the 1st was the first time I have had a full clean shave in about 5 months.
What style of mo are you aiming for?

Robert Dunne

Even if I desperately wanted to I cannot grow a handlebar or trucker, so I keep tight across the top lip with a slug, not quite full bodied enough to call it the undercover brother (Tom Selleck) but the maybe the box car.
