Success is not something to be pursued. It’s something that happens because of the person you become.
Hey, I’m Robin. In my past life, I was a senior leader, managing over 100 people in the technology industry. I was known for creating change, challenging the status quo, and daring people to believe in themselves and think bigger. But my story has not been without its challenges.
I’ve lived the corporate life and led people through difficult times, coping with the emotions and fears that accompany making people redundant, and facing redundancy myself. I pushed myself to climb the corporate ladder, only to realise (perhaps accept) that the ladder was BS.
I’ve always loved learning and personal development, but following professional strain, health-related anxiety, and a difficult divorce, I immersed myself further into coaching and launched my own business. I’ve learned to surf the ups and downs of life and now coach using the exact tools I’ve put into practice – that’s how I know this stuff works!
What I’ve learned through my training and personal experience is that growth isn’t linear, it’s emergent, which is why my hybrid Level Seven approach is so effective. We pivot seamlessly between the practical matters of running your business and the deeper, personal inner work needed to achieve your vision.
My commitment to you is to be the best ally you will ever have, to hold you to your highest and have your back in ways you’ve never experienced.
- I will be real and authentic.
- I will hide nothing and hold nothing back.
- I will show up prepared, on time, and play full out.
- I will hold every engagement in the sacred place where miracles can and do happen.
Life & Business // Coach
My story goes back a long way. It’s not been plain sailing and I’ve overcome some serious challenges. When it comes to high impact coaching I believe that’s really important.
I struggled at school. I didn’t feel stupid but the lessons didn’t seem to go in like they appeared to for others. I felt self-conscious and didn’t want to ask for help because I knew it would draw attention. I had to go to college to get better grades, I was embarrassed and it stung.
I had a rock climbing accident when I was 18 and broke my neck. I thought my life of adventure was over, but it wasn’t. I learnt to pivot!
I’ve been married and divorced. I’ve gone the whole 9 yards through court, running out of money to pay for legal representation and having to represent myself. I’ve fought through court to see my children more, because my ex-wife and I see the world differently.
I was diagnosed with arthritis when I was 30 and I’ve had to come to terms with this and learn to manage it, even though it meant overcoming my fear of needles to give myself weekly injections.
I had a skin cancer scare that knocked me on my arse with health related anxiety for 18 months. Though my heartbeat still quickens whenever I visit the doctor, I’ve learnt how to control my anxiety, so it doesn’t impact my life.
I’ve had the corporate life, leading teams of over 100 people. I’ve led through seriously difficult times, having to make people I care about redundant, moving their work to other countries. I’ve been made redundant myself and navigated all the emotions and fears that this can invoke. Over many years, I pushed myself to climb the corporate ladder, only to realise my ladder was against the wrong wall.
I’ve run a business and learned to surf the ups and downs of this life, not to mention managing that ‘oh shit’ feeling, that makes you want to be sick and run away when you’ve no money to pay yourself and you have responsibilities.
