Rob’s Story

I believe in the potential for people to change, for things to be better and, above all, that anything is possible. My whole life has been about realising potential. In sport, I’ve been a World Champion sailor. In business, I’ve had great success with the likes of  Apple, Hewlett Packard, Publicis Mojo and Miller Heiman Group. I graduated with a Bachelor of Business and a Post Graduate degree in Applied Finance and since then I have undertaken further professional development in Leadership, Management, Marketing and Mindset. 

That combined experience has allowed me to become a regular contributor to media including Sky News, Yahoo! Finance, Kochie’s Business Builders and Bread TV. I’ve also authored four books, including my latest effort “It’s all Possible” which is also a successful podcast. In realising my own potential, I have come to understand how to realise it in others.

Throughout my career, I’ve had to figure out strategies and programs that address high-priority business challenges and opportunities. That means more than 30 years working out better questions, better ways and better mindsets, disciplines and accountabilities to help business leaders and organisations realise their potential. Along the way, I’ve figured things out and made things happen for everyone from startups to Fortune 500 companies, and been fortunate enough to do it all around the world. 

If you are ready to realise your own potential; if you are a visionary leader looking to overcome a challenge, take advantage of an opportunity, or make something happen, I can help.
