To deliver results for your organisation we need, in the first instance, to have a confidential discussion about your business aspirations. We then need to understand your current situation, which helps us determine the logical next steps:
- Perhaps the true purpose and values need to be surfaced more clearly
- It could be that the strategy needs a refresh
- Maybe it’s more about effective implementation and execution
- Potentially you need to upgrade your teams capability to perform at the next level
SO WHAT DOES ROB DO?
Rob has a comprehensive program of business coaching and consulting which draws heavily on both the Scaling Up best practice and his own experience. As a Scaling Up International Coach, Rob brings Scaling Up executive education, coaching and technology services that have helped mid-market companies around the world build and execute a strategic plan. Best known for its One-Page Strategic Plan and other one-page tools, Scaling Up focuses on helping executive teams make the right decisions when it comes to four key areas: people, strategy, execution and cash.
Scaling Up was founded in 1997 by Verne Harnish. He has advised hundreds of midsized firms on growth-related issues, and played a leading role in both the Young Entrepreneurs Organization and the Birthing of Giants executive education program at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Building off this strong foundation with growth firms, through its network of selected consultants, the Scaling Up approach is currently in use with around 2000 clients worldwide representing $42b in combined revenue – they use it because it works!
The key elements of the program are formulated around a one-page plan that helps you to:
- Get clarity on your organisation’s purpose, values and long-term goal
- Develop a strategy that builds on your strengths and identifies the brand promise that connects with your core customers
- Prioritise, measure and assign accountability for the key actions that will deliver the results.
- Structuring around your goals to accelerate your achievements
The outcome is a clear, accountable, aligned, easy-to-communicate roadmap to take your organisation confidently forward. So, depending upon your needs, Rob’s role will range from running your annual strategy workshop through to coaching you on a comprehensive growth program.

Nick Beckett - Consultant & Strategic Advisor, ex-CEO of Dimple
"When Rob was introduced to Dimple we were at an inflection point - entering a phase of significant change and growth. Rob quickly built rapport and became a trusted ally. Rob’s approach and tools allowed us to move faster than if we had navigated the challenges alone. I strongly believe trust is earned - generated through consistent demonstration of both great character and competence. Rob has oodles of both! Rob Nankervis is a rock star… and more importantly, a valued and trusted friend."
Gaethan Cutri - Owner, Cutri Fruit
"Rob’s quarterly planning sessions have helped changed the direction and focus of the Cutri Fruit business for the better.
Prior to working with Rob we had tried many times to implement the Rockefeller habits without success. Working with Rob allowed us to dissect what made our business thrive so that we could then focus on what was important."
Ross Gallagher - Executive General Manager, Home Care at IRT Group
"Rob has been actively involved in helping me adopt the Rockefeller Habits operating model across three businesses now.
Rob’s facilitation, mentoring & coaching and general advice provides significant value as he asks the hard questions, challenges ones thinking and stresses focus on executing the “top 5” as you embark on your strategic journey."
Stephen Ellich - CEO & Director, UCS Group
"I decided to utilise the Scaling Up methodology when establishing our UCS2023 strategic plan. An expert Scaling Up coach, Rob has been a vital member of our strategic planning team and for the team, he is part of the business. UCS has grown in excess of 30% per year for the last two years. While there is no doubt that this is a credit to our excellent team and culture, Rob's guidance and support has materially contributed to our growth story."
Erik Birzulis - Managing Director, Landair Surveys
"Rob has really helped us to improve engagement with our team and interpret key metrics in our organisation to drive financial performance. Rob is great to work with."
James Agius - Managing Director, ECOTECH Pty Ltd
"Rob was appointed as Ecotech’s business coach in early 2014. The business was 40 years old and solid, but it was a good time for a refresh. With his guidance we established a multi-year strategic plan and implemented execution disciplines of priority-setting, metrics and meeting rhythms. Rob has been by our side through it all, helping us to develop the clarity and alignment to navigate the challenges and opportunities. I would recommend him to other leaders seeking to boost the growth and performance of their business."
