“If you are running an accounting firm, then a day with Rob is almost not negotiable. You need to go through the various parts of your firm so he can point out your blind spots and make sure you are heading in the right direction.”

Mark Cottle – Director, Frontline Accounting

“Rob attends our partners meetings as an advisor and we really value his experience. He challenges our thinking and helps us stay focused on what is important. He also ensures we remain accountable.”

Steven Coffey – Partner, Watkins Coffey Martin

“Rob’s knowledge of accounting firms is broad, deep and practical. His review of our firm was insightful and has helped us focus on what is important for our success.”

Robert Shelton – Managing Director, DFK Everalls

“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.”

Karen Kemp – Partner, Kemp & Partners

“Rob did a review of my firm which provided many useful recommendations to improve it. 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.”

Jared Balkin – Director, Catalyst Financial

It has also been valuable to explore ideas, discuss issues and draw on Rob’s experience with many other firms of what works and what doesn’t.”
