Rob Pickering

Business Owner & Coach

During 20+ years in business the constant for Rob was always his love of training and inspiring people to develop their skills. Not content with skills in one area of business, Rob worked tirelessly at developing his knowledge across all areas. Of course knowing something and being able to teach it are two very different things. Rob has the patience and the focus to do whatever it takes to get the enthusiasm and knowledge across.

As an experienced Business Coach, Rob is committed to helping Business Owners achieve greater success. His expertise span sales, marketing, strategic planning, training, recruiting, team management and much more

Most often Rob works with businesses that are already successful and profitable. Perhaps you’re doing OK but wondering what the next step should be? How to get to the next level of growth, the next level of profit, or even wondering about exit options. As your coach, Rob will start by finding out what’s really important to you. This can be harder to put into words than you’d imagine, but achieving it is liberating. The clarity of knowing where you’re going makes it easy to work out what your options are.

Pickles

Head of Security & Team Motivation

Pickles is the youngest member of the ActionCOACH team and likes to think she has the most important job as ‘Head of Security & Team Motivation’!

She’s great at generally looking cute and requesting tummy tickles, she is also a good excuse for the team to get away from their desks during lunch for a bit of fresh air in the park.

Pickles is great at greeting visitors to the office and often likes to sit in on meetings. Pickles likes all forms of dog treats, so when you next visit, make sure to bring a biscuit and you’ll have a friend for life.
