What Our clients say

Founder/CEO of Start-Up SaaS Company

 "A good Exec Coach is part therapist, part startup specialist, and part  consigliere. I joke with him that 75% of the time the act of verbalizing  what I'm dealing with causes me to figure out the answer on my own. All  joking aside, my Coach has advised me well. Thanks, Bob!" 

Owner of Early-Stage Design Firm

 "Bob was able to understand our complex business model and quickly get to the core issues. His experience across a wide range of businesses was of great help, pointing out what works and what doesn't, finding options for growth and better strategy going forward. We would totally recommend working with him."
