About Rob

I have 30+ years of commercial business experience. After beginning my career by working in various blue chip companies, I took the leap In 1991 to start my own marketing, PR and design agency. Over the next 11 years, I grew the business into an award-winning agency with 25 staff and revenues in excess of £1.5m. In 2002, I sold the business and then retrained to become a coach and mentor. Since forming Da Costa Coaching in 2007, I have helped over 350 agencies to grow in a sustainable, profitable and enjoyable way.

Why work with Rob?

Ronan Walsh

Rob has been working with us for a few years and has helped us niche down and focus. As a result we got rid of some bad fit clients and our culture improved massively. Revenue has grown by 100% and more importantly, profit by 300%. Today we are completely different business and I can't recommend Rob enough!

I was at a bit of crossroads and Rob's messaging really resonated with the dilemmas I was facing. He had the insights and empathy to guide me on the right things to do and focus on them. He doesn't just tell me the things I should be doing but actually HOW to do them (unlike many professional advisors) by providing me with practical tools and plans of actions to get the tasks done. I have also found the community aspect of what Rob offers helps me validate my thinking and learn from others.

I was looking for practical advice on how to improve the running of my agency. Rob has been there and done it, and made the mistakes! That experience proved invaluable. He gave me lots of great tips and advice on running an agency that I didn't know. He helped me create a plan and held me accountable. Being part of a group of agencies gave me a lot of reassurance that wee are all 'in the same boat'.
