"I've worked with Robin for the last year and have found his style of coaching to be a perfect fit for me.
He is easy to work with and most of the sessions feel conversational, however he makes sure you don't avoid the tougher
issues and can force you to address them head on when needed.
He has a huge array of different techniques and tools to help in different circumstances and I really value the insight and counsel that he gives that has helped me develop my leadership skills and self-awareness in the time we have worked together. "
Will Jackson, UK Financial Controller at National Grid
"Through coaching sessions with Robin I have been able to develop and implement successful performance improvement strategies for myself and my team. Robin has encouraged me to question/challenge my perceptions about myself, my team and our approach. I am able to demonstrate a tangible increase in performance over the last 12 months which I believe is a direct result of Robin’s input. I consider Robin as a trusted advisor, a confidante and a friend."
Mike Seaman, Portfolio Director, Clarion Events
"Robin is a coach who makes you feel like you're just having a chat with a friend. But as the session continues there is an odd moment when you realise you've revealed so much that can be questioned, analysed and shifted. So much so, that you start to doubt how you originally viewed something. I call it the Robin Goosebump Moment (RGM). It's more than holding up a mirror to yourself, it's like holding up a mirror wearing x-ray glasses."
Christina Economou, LHH
"Through the sessions with Robin I found positive strategies for my team and myself. Robin helped me to think outside my comfort zone and supported me through challenging decision processes. I value the sessions very much and am forever grateful for the support and time!"

Neil - Chiropractor and Chairman of a Charity Organisation
"I'd like to thank Robin for all the work we did together this year. It was life changing and also thought provoking. Without his guidance it would have taken me longer to realise my goals and prioritise what is important in my life.
The work I did with him made a big difference and I am looking forward to the New Year when I will certainly work with him again. I strongly recommend this coach."
