What does Rob do?

Gaxelles International
To deliver results for your organisation we need, in the first instance, to have a confidential discussion about your business aspirations. We then need to understand your current situation, which helps us determine the logical next steps:

  • Perhaps the true purpose and values need to be surfaced more clearly,
  • It could be that the strategy needs a refresh,
  • Maybe it’s more about effective implementation and execution,
  • Potentially you need to upgrade your teams capability to perform at the next level

To knit this together, Rob has a comprehensive program of business coaching and consulting which draws heavily on both the Gazelles best practice and his own experience. As a Gazelles International Coach, Rob brings Gazelles executive education, coaching and technology services that have helped mid-market companies around the world build and execute a strategic plan. Best known for its One-Page Strategic Plan and other one-page tools, Gazelles focuses on helping executive teams make the right decisions when it comes to four key areas: people, strategy, execution and cash.

Gazelles was founded in 1997 by Verne Harnish. He has advised hundreds of midsized firms on growth-related issues, and played a leading role in both the Young Entrepreneurs Organization and the Birthing of Giants executive education program at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Building off this strong foundation with growth firms, through its network of selected consultants, the Gazelles approach is currently in use with around 2000 clients worldwide representing $42b in combined revenue – they use it because it works!

The key elements of the program are formulated around a one-page plan that helps you to:

  • Get clarity on your organisation’s purpose, values and long-term goal
  • Develop a strategy that builds on your strengths and identifies the brand promise that connects with your core customers
  • Prioritise, measure and assign accountability for the key actions that will deliver the results.

The outcome is a clear, accountable, aligned, easy-to-communicate roadmap to take your organisation confidently forward. So, depending upon your needs, Rob’s role will range from running your annual strategy workshop through to coaching you on a comprehensive growth program.


“After many years of conducting strategic planning sessions without any real follow through I decided it was time for some external help. Rob came on board and guided us through two days of solid strategic planning using a comprehensive system which really forced us to look hard into where we were and where we wanted to be. At the end we each had a clear idea of what had to be done and by when. Importantly by engaging Rob for follow up quarterly review sessions we now had a system whereby our accountability to those strategic commitments was now in the spotlight. Our ability to plan and execute strategy has improved dramatically along with a corresponding sense of purpose and team cohesion. With a 190% increase in budgeted profit after our first year of working with Rob, I can highly recommend him for any organisation wanting to improve their strategic planning and execution capabilities.”

“Rob, just a quick note to say thanks for all of your help over the last 18 months in helping us steer the ship through very challenging times. It is no coincidence that with your help and guidance to develop our business strategy and with the resultant key decisions made, our business is in a very strong position. We have in fact, just had our best ever 1st half, the team are all aligned and the future is very exciting. We can’t thank you enough.”
