Rob Pickering

Business Owner & Coach

During 20+ years in business the constant for Rob was always his love of training and inspiring people to develop their skills. Not content with skills in one area of business, Rob worked tirelessly at developing his knowledge across all areas. Of course knowing something and being able to teach it are two very different things. Rob has the patience and the focus to do whatever it takes to get the enthusiasm and knowledge across.

As an experienced Business Coach, Rob is committed to helping Business Owners achieve greater success. His expertise span sales, marketing, strategic planning, training, recruiting, team management and much more

Most often Rob works with businesses that are already successful and profitable. Perhaps you’re doing OK but wondering what the next step should be? How to get to the next level of growth, the next level of profit, or even wondering about exit options. As your coach, Rob will start by finding out what’s really important to you. This can be harder to put into words than you’d imagine, but achieving it is liberating. The clarity of knowing where you’re going makes it easy to work out what your options are.

Peter Loverdos

Director & Coach

An accomplished business leader ‘who’s walked the walk’.

Having started, built and sold three of my own companies, completed successful Management-Buyouts of 2 companies (and exited both), it feels like my business journey has equipped me with the skills and knowledge to help small business owners such as yourself to get more out of life by getting more out of your business.

As a business coach, this is my point of differentiation – I have walked the walk!

And ‘I eat my own dog food’ as the saying goes. In other words I ensure I am coached, all the time, In fact I’ve been coached for 15 years and currently have 2 coaches – a performance and accountability coach and a mindset coach.

I now work with business owners of local SMEs to help them build better businesses and navigate periods of rapid growth. I also help owners with business acquisitions, mergers and how to develop and execute exit plans so they can reap the rewards of their entrepreneurial endeavors.

I live in Wokingham and spend my time with my family, travelling, golfing and reading a lot!
