About Robin

With EMCC (European Mentoring and Coaching Council) global accreditation, I am an executive, leadership, workplace and SME business coach who is based in Glasgow, and work in person and digitally across the UK and beyond.

Working with small business owners/ directors, solopreneurs, freelance contractors and organisations with up to circa 200-250 employees.

Small Business Owners/ Directors, Solopreneurs and Freelance Contractors

Giving you the space to pause, plan and prioritise, you will bring your ideas to life and create the business that you want.

Whether your business is in the early stages of start up or it is more established and you just want it to grow and develop, I can be flexible with my approach to meet your circumstances, as we achieve the outcomes that you want.

Looking at tomorrow and gaining a clearer understanding of today, you will create realistic and achievable plans, take ownership and strive to succeed.

Through working with me, you we will get positive, tangible and sustainable results.

I will be your accountability and thinking partner, your sounding board and confidante. I will be your extra brain and crucially will be that voice of balance and reason.

Employee Personal and Professional Development

If it is employee development that you seek (either with or without executive business coaching), then this is an area that I also specialise in and work with many leading companies and organisations through my associate work.

From senior leadership – right through to their associated teams, I adapt my approach and methodology to bring about:

  • Improved culture and working practices
  • More engaged employees
  • Strengthened management
  • Increased productivity
  • More open communication
  • More accountability
  • Better morale
  • Recognition of well-being and work life balance
  • Future leader development
  • Promote teamwork
  • Positive values showcased

I am also trained in DISC workplace psychometric profiling which is an excellent addition to any coaching programme.

Commitment to Diversity, Inclusion and the Environment

I welcome people from all backgrounds and pride myself that many of my clients are neuro-diverse with conditions such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia. I receive regular training in this field from the charity ‘Exceptional Individuals’ and the social enterprise ‘Genius Within CIC’ with whom I also work.

As part of my coaching accreditation, I regularly review my outlook with regards to diversity and inclusion, and pledge to keep them front and centre of my coaching work.

I also take particular professional pride when I work with people (especially males/ those who identify as males), who for whatever reason have perhaps previously not been able to open up about challenges that they might be facing or possibly not been able to identify the opportunities and potential around them.

To those who are interested, I have also been trained in mental health awareness from Mental Health First Aid England and I have also received advanced PVG clearance from Disclosure Scotland.

I also think it is important to work in an environmental friendly and sensible way so where possible and appropriate, I will advocate for coaching sessions to be carried out through a digital platform such as Zoom, Skype or Teams.

Additional offering

I also offer consultancy, facilitation, project management and interim support in supply chain management, organisational development and change management.

Client Reviews

I found the coaching with Robin, which we did digitally, to be very useful and allowed me to take a step back and properly assess what was happening and how I was managing situations. Being able to speak to somebody who was not involved with my business gave me the space to be open, honest and objective and talk through issues and concerns.

Robin was also able to ask me some questions that allowed me to approach these issues and concerns differently and with a refreshed view. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and found the coaching process very thought provoking and insightful.
LB, South Wales

The coaching with Robin was excellent and very supportive during the current situation, and even though my circumstances changed early on in the programme, he was very flexible and adapted the plan to meet my changing needs.

Working with Robin has given me the confidence in my leadership to try different strategies, and I will definitely use some of the coaching models that we discussed.
TS, St Albans

Robin has been a kind, thoughtful and encouraging coach. Balancing objectivity with the needs of his clients is a real strength and has benefitted me greatly. In moments of difficulty and frustration, Robin has encouraged me to look beyond my own perspective and consider other POVs and take a look at the bigger picture. Robin is a person-centred coach and has been flexible in his approach for which I am very grateful.
AH, Liverpool

Robin made my first coaching experience easy and straightforward.
Thanks for supporting, listening, encouraging and challenging me. It was exactly what I needed and have now set strong foundations for moving forward. You’ve really helped me through a difficult business period, thanks again. Can’t recommend Robin highly enough! BS, Edinburgh

Robin was very professional in his approach and would always promptly follow up sessions with a summary. He was always interested in what you had to say and would go away and research things for you to look at.
JA, Nottingham

Having never worked with a life coach before I was not sure what to expect.
However, from the very beginning Robin made it a very relaxing and safe place to explore what’s on your mind. He asks the questions that point you in the right direction in finding your own answers. This is certainly a gift. Sometimes it’s just a case of being asked those questions that make things a lot clearer. I really enjoyed my experience working with Robin and would certainly recommend him.
WS, London

Coaching with Robin was a real treat! It is rare to find someone as engaging and personable. Make no mistake: Robin is a talented coach with skills that I doubt they teach when studying to be a coach (but if that is the case, he makes it look effortless). I always felt like I was in good hands working with Robin, who is genuinely one of the nicest people I have met.
ER, Manchester

Robin was very caring and helpful. He helped me get new insights into my plans for the future. Very good follow up emails. Thank you
EG, Oxford

The coaching sessions with Robin have helped me to develop a more mindful approach to both my personal and professional life, and has allowed me to strike a better balance. This has not only improved my own work but has also helped me engage better with colleagues at all levels too.
HK, Carlisle

Through the coaching, Robin provided the time and space for me to think through issues and then supported and equipped me with the confidence and tools needed to take on challenging tasks that I possibly would have avoided in the past.
CD, Glasgow
