“I have great pleasure in endorsing Robin Johnson. Establishing trust, intimacy and rapport are all essential attributes for a great coach. Robin possesses them all in abundance. We moved forward recognising and enhancing many of my professional and personal development needs. Robin is an extremely effective listener.
Through powerful challenges he helped me focus in on the key aspects of my development. Sometimes it was a direct challenge and other times it was gentle encouragement. Either way, knowing how to get the best out of me and help me reach my full potential was Robin's forte. I found working with Robin an absolute pleasure and would greatly look forward to each coaching session.”

MD at NLP World.
“Robin has got the Midas Touch when it comes to success. Everything he chooses to focus on comes back with 1st prizes and gold stars. I don't say that lightly as to me words are precious entities to be guarded and as valuable as your cash in the bank. Work with Robin and you get a personality as inquisitive to get into the issue as Colombo and tenacious as a ferret to get the result. Do not hire him if you want your company (or yourself) to remain the same.”

UK Trade Sales Manager at Interpet Ltd.
“The coaching, advice, training and guidance from Robin proved to be a fantastic investment and vital boost in providing both myself and our company with the right focus to utilise our strengths and work on our weaknesses. Robin has a fantastic talent in working out how and where his clients need development and after only a handful of sessions the pieces of the puzzle look a lot clearer very quickly.
I have no doubt this is down to Robin's years of experience and business knowhow and why he's such a great influence. All sessions were effective and incredibly proactive so any advice or learning's could be put into practice straight away. I'd recommend Robin to help you enhance and improve yourself and your company with quick and motivational results.”

"I have seen the successful results of Robin Johnson's business coaching for myself and the very real performance benefits these have given to the top professionals he coaches, both in 1-2-1 sessions and in wider groups. Robin enables people to operate and communicate more effectively as balanced individuals using the wide range of techniques at his disposal and his considerable personal ability to convey those that best suit a person's individual style. It's a rare talent.
I am delighted to have provided Robin and some of his clients with their visual communication needs in support of the focus and forward planning that has often been a direct result of Robin's leadership coaching."
