Rob has forged a niche to be the world’s foremost authority on how Accounting firms can achieve peak performance.
Rob believes that Accountants are the natural trusted adviser to business. He believes that technology needs content and methodology to really be useful. He believes that Accountants are not that interested in the future they are interested in what they need to do NOW. He also believes that unless Accountants change their business model then a big part of their current revenue will go the way of the dinosaur.
Since 1994 he has been running businesses that specialise in helping Accountants run better, more profitable businesses. His speaking work has taken him around the world where he has spoken to in excess of 150,000 accountants. Currently his landmark strategies and products are used by over 16,000 accountants in over 20 countries.
In 2005 he created the revolutionary coaching model called coachingclub. The coachingclub model enabled firms to be accountable, to consistently learn and to share ideas amongst their peers. The vast majority of firms have doubled or tripled profits because of the program.
He is the author of 2 bestselling books “Accounting Practices Don’t Add Up – why they don’t and what to do about it” AND “Remaining Relevant – the future of the Accounting profession”. Both have received rave reviews from Accountants and industry professionals from around the world.
In 2014 he released a groundbreaking cloud software solution called PANALITIX. Accountancy firms around the world use PANALITIX to get better numbers and delight their clients. PANALITIX helps Accountants automate their marketing and delivery of business advisory services.
Rob is a keen golfer (single figures) and adventurer (he is ticket holder 293 on Virgin Galactic to go into space). He lives in sunny Brisbane, Australia with his lovely wife Natalie and 3 children.
