“We chose Rob to do a review of our firm due to his friendly, approachable nature and his exceptional experience in his line of work. And he delivered. He presented us with a document filled with useful information and recommended action for each area of concern. All good, practical, realistic tasks for us to complete. We have been able to implement and make changes to improve our business. We are already noticing the difference and will continue to work with Rob on this.”

He also facilitated a planning day for me where I was able to set growth targets for my firm and document a plan to work towards achieving the targets. This included getting clear on the products and services I am offering and the ideal team structure needed to achieve the targets. The plans made and implemented as a result are already having a positive impact.”
