Having started, grown and sold my own successful agency (and subsequently retrained to become a coach and online educator), I know what it’s like to be up against it. Whether you’re trying to win new business, manage challenging clients, complete urgent work on short timescales, deal with your staff or freelancers, it feels like there isn’t enough time in the day for everything. It can feel like you’re stuck in a never-ending cycle of work, rinse and repeat… until one day, you wake up and think “what on earth am I doing?”
Trust me, I’ve been there before, both when I sold my agency, and numerous times throughout the years I spent running it. It’s not easy to go it alone.
But thankfully, you don’t need to go it alone anymore. As a business coach & mentor, I’ve worked with 300+ agency owners over the past 14 years. In that time, I’ve encountered (and solved) many different problems. Odds are that I can help you too.

How I work with you
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.
MD, Pedroza Communications
Rob helped me move my pricing approach from a time-based model to a value-based model. It took a bit of convincing and courage but he was right to encourage me in this direction.
The impact has been HUGE and we have seen our profits increase by 66% in just 12 months.
MD, Spoon Agency
I wanted a coach who had good empathy with me and could help us grow our business. Since Rob had built his own agency he understood where we were at and where we wanted to get to. His help has given us the tools and confidence to grow our agency significantly, even in a challenging economy
