I have 30+ years of commercial business experience. After beginning my career by working in various blue chip companies, I took the leap In 1991 to start my own marketing, PR and design agency. Over the next 11 years, I grew the business into an award-winning agency with 25 staff and revenues in excess of £1.5m. In 2002, I sold the business and then retrained to become a coach and mentor. Since forming Da Costa Coaching in 2007, I have helped over 300 agencies to grow in a sustainble, profitable and enjoyable way.

I worked with Rob to help with the direction, structure and development of my agency. He helped me to define exactly what I wanted from the agency and how I wanted it to evolve. He helped me to develop a vision, strategy and practical plan to build the agency in a way that I wanted - that matched my personal situation and aspirations.
Rob understands how agencies work through his own experience and this really differentiates him from other consultants and coaches.
Rob has been a 'critical friend' to me and my business for some years. A couple of years ago he knew I was struggling with defining my services and positioning and that my business was suffering as a result. He asked me one simple question that immediately gave me clarity, direction and a sense of purpose in my business, and set me on the road to my current success, running a business with a six figure turnover, travelling the world doing something I love and get well paid for it. What was that one question? You'll need to work with Rob to find out.
I had to restructure my agency after my business partner decided to leave, and the process of having to scale back and uncertainty of continuing in a new form was daunting. I love the project work and our team, but I was disheartened about running a business after a prolonged period of disruption. Rob challenged and supported me to explore how I wanted to move forward and helped me realise I want to grow the business again. He's also helped me develop better practices around team management and client contact. I'm delighted the business and I are now both thriving again - and this couldn't have been possible without Rob's careful input, advice and experience.
