"I had been looking for a business coach for about 9 months but could not find the right person. Then I approached Rob and very quickly we developed an excellent rapport. He is an ideal mix of advisor, sounding-board, confidante and conscience. I am confident that Rob, over the last 12 months, has contributed significantly to the spectacular growth of Academia Ltd (Sunday Times – Fast Track 100) . More importantly, I'm looking forward to working with him over the next 12 months as we continue to exceed our growth targets."

"Easy to implement business advice which really makes a positive difference. If you struggle with a lack of money, lack of time or your team could perform better, then you should be working with ActionCOACH Oxon/Berks. They provide a friendly service, over deliver for their clients and it's also fun to work with them. We thoroughly recommend them to clients and do the same for you."
Graham Carson | Managing Director | Inca - Caring Accounting
"I have worked with Rob Pickering of Action Coach over the last 20 months to develop a 'dash board' for our business, providing up-to-date information on KPI's. We have implemented a marketing plan to improve communication with our customers and prospects. We are working on strategies to improve utilisation."

"We've been working with you for around 2 years now, and I'm very pleased that I discovered your services and the ActionCOACH system and decided to work with you. Why? Well, because this financial year we've increased our turnover by 40%. However, turnover is vanity and profit is sanity - so how about the profits? Well, I'm pleased to announce that they have increased by around 300%! The simple truth is, without your guidance and knowledge we'd likely have bubbled along and done 'about the same' as last year, which was 'about the same' as the year before. Your input has helped me grow the business, in staffing terms as well as financial terms, and as a result Sarah and I will be able to have a holiday with less stress this year as we now have a great back-office team to manage things in our absence. Thanks again for all your help and guidance, you've helped clarify my thoughts in tough times and the seeds that have been sown over the past 2 years are really blossoming now!"

"Rob has had a huge impact on me and my business, not only in financial terms but in my mindset, self value and goal setting which, to me, has been the most valuable. I have found that my productivity and goal reaching has gone up and in turn growth has been consistent due to Rob's input. I would recommend Rob to anyone who is serious about getting the best for their business and for themselves."
David Greenaway | Managing Director | Chips Away Abingdon
“I have been working with Rob as my coach for over a year now and he has really helped me grow and evolve the business over this time. He is a fantastic support and continues to push me to venture out of my comfort zone, set goals and targets and holds me accountable. He run's a wide selection of really valuable workshops which I would encourage every business owner in the Oxon and Berks area to go along and experience. Rob is an inspirational coach and business owner and I highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about growing their business.”
Lisa Chaffey | Managing Director | Pickle Marketing
"I started my business about a year and half ago and the advice that Rob Pickering has given me has been so important to how my business has grown and developed. How my business looks now is very different from how it started, Rob has some great experience which he is very happy to share with you and he gets you to think of things a little differently."
Amanda Fielding | Managing Director | A J HR Solutions Ltd
“Having worked with business coaches before, I have found Rob's approach to be very unique and distinctive. He knows exactly how to guide his clients to get the best possible results. His brilliant business knowledge has inspired me and led me to take my business in the right directions. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rob for outstanding personalised business coaching services.”
Nathalie Danon-Kerr | Managing Director | The Vici Language Academy
"We have been working closely with Rob for over a year and what a year it has been. Work has become fun again and we have set structured targets with Rob's help to double our turnover in the next 2 years. We are on target to achieve this in one. For anyone having any business challenges I would very highly recommend picking up the phone or emailing Rob to let him help you be what you want to be as a company ( and perhaps as a person too). He is amazing."
Jo & Jamie Beasley | Managing Director | Berkshire Office Furniture
“Many people, when transitioning from the world of employment to owning and operating their own business, need to re-evaluate their approach to client management, generating income versus profit, managing people, and sales techniques. Rob’s insight and ability to coach people through this transitional phase really made a difference and helped me to change my mindset. I didn’t want to be working all hours – I’ve been there and done that. One of the reasons I stepped away from the corporate world was to have more flexibility in terms of how I spent my time and how I shape my working week. Rob understands that, and we’ve built FPR’s growth plans with this work:life balance in mind.
