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 450 agencies to grow in a sustainable, profitable and enjoyable way.

Why work with Rob?

Sonaya Williams

I decided to work with Rob since I have been running my business since 2011 but still I was doing everything and couldn't figure out how to grow. Rob helped show me the 'right way' and having a community of people I could talk to was also super beneficial. He helped me move away from solely relying on referrals to having a proper business development system in place.

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.

Your email marketing really spoke to us. It showed you knew our business and guided us to solve some of the issues we faced (and it shows email marketing works!) - so we knew we needed to speak to you. You have given us a framework that gives us clarity and a way to solve the issues we face. For example, we didnt know how to find our niche and you showed us EXACTLY how to do this after many years of being stuck. We love being part of something bigger in the group calls. We also love your straight talking and you have great empathy with us.
