Welcome. You’re in good company.

I’ve worked with amazing people in remarkable organizations, from smaller companies and startups to many of the Fortune 500.

“I strongly recommend you use Robert if you are looking to mature as a top exec, strengthen your team, improve your strategic thinking ability, present like a celeb, sell or articulate your vision clearly and simply.”

Robert is an experienced and insightful executive coach. One that takes a different approach to coaching, one tailored to individuals and their unique needs. Over the last three years I’ve taken advantage of his talents on numerous fronts.

– High level exec coaching (strategic thinking, prioritization, people motivation and management, time management, 360’s, etc.)
– Presentation prep and coaching
– Sounding board for internal challenges / problem solving
– Training for at least ten of my top execs and members of my management team
– Exec 360 reviews and coaching

I strongly recommend you use Robert if you are looking to mature as a top exec, strengthen your team, improve your strategic thinking ability, present like a celeb, sell or articulate your vision clearly and simply.

I look at Robert as an insider within my organization; he’s worked with all of my team and continues to contribute to our overall growth.Robert was a key player during our quest and successful IPO last February on NYSE. He contributed to my success as a CEO as I evolved AVG from a small 200 person private European company to a global public company with over 1,000 people today.

I strongly recommend you use Robert if you are looking to mature as a top exec, strengthen your team, improve your strategic thinking ability, present like a celeb, sell or articulate your vision clearly and simply.

Monique Giggy

Robert coached me for an important talk at our client summit. He helped me immeasurably with my presentation narrative and flow, body language, delivery, and poise, and gave me a tremendous amount of confidence. The results? “It was magic!” (from an audience member)

Could not recommend Robert more highly!

Roddy Lindsay

I had the distinct pleasure of working with Robert Ellis over the last 3 years as a contractor in diverse activities that I led. Robert has been more than an ideal partner and has gained my deepest respect in the following activities:a) While working as senior vice president at SAP, I was fortunate to have Robert as my executive coach for 3 months. He was deeply perceptive, an engaged listener, insightfully clarifying my strengths and challenges. In this relatively short period he helped me set intelligible intentions and effortlessly transform my working skills to a significantly higher level.

b) In addition, I hired him to plan and moderate large team meetings and lead team building sessions that included more than 50 people. SAP is a challenging environment: employees come from multiple cultures and backgrounds and are extremely demanding and critical. Robert consistently scored the highest satisfaction results with the team and was admired by all participants for his natural leadership ability and his aptitude to combine fundamental learning with fun. My team always left these events with high energy and a strong sense of time well spent—a rare sentiment in the SAP environment.

“Robert is an all around talented individual, always passionate, absolutely trustworthy, collaborative, caring, and one of the nicest people I have ever worked with.”

c) Robert has also collaborated with me on the creation of a startup I founded. His candid and succinct advice, superior knowledge, and unconditional dedication were a major contribution to my success.Robert is an all around talented individual, always passionate, absolutely trustworthy, collaborative, caring, and one of the nicest people I have ever worked with. Since my team, and I will always hold him in the highest esteem, I sincerely recommend Robert.

“He managed to make really amazing positive changes in both the quality as well as the content of our IPO roadshow, it was truly amazing.”

Siobhan MacDermott

Robert worked with our exec management team at AVG while we were going through our IPO. He managed to make really amazing positive changes in both the quality as well as the content of our IPO roadshow, it was truly amazing. Robert’s creativity and passion were really a driving force behind our success, as were his words of wisdom and encouragement.

“It is not often one gets to say that a single day can change a life, but that is what Robert did for me.”

Liesl Capper

It is not often one gets to say that a single day can change a life, but that is what Robert did for me.I am a seasoned CEO, regular public speaker on a global stage, have listed a company before, raised venture funding, launched tech products, have a bunch of patents, multiple successful exits…….but I was still struggling to have the impact I ought to have given that sort of track record.

Robert helped me cut through the noise of my own ego to find my authentic self.

I now stand with more power, awareness and fullness of presence.

I would happily have ten days more….

and am happy to recommend him to anyone privileged enough to get to work with him

“The breadth and depth of Robert’s coaching skills are highly insightful and also grounded in solid business acumen.”

Beth Waitkus

The breadth and depth of Robert’s coaching skills are highly insightful and also grounded in solid business acumen. He’s supportive, engaging, and gently challenging. One of his most exceptional gifts as a coach is to ask the most appropriate question at just the right moment, and then to creatively and constructively provide feedback. He has inspired me to dig deeper and move through my own resistance so I can continue to integrate and manifest my personal and professional mission.—Beth Waitkus

“Robert might be one of Silicon Valley’s best kept secrets.”

Robert Lang

Robert might be one of Silicon Valley’s best kept secrets. Rarely, I have met someone who was so quick to build a trusted relationship with. Granted, that Robert was introduced to me with very high recommendations, but then, many people do and Robert definitely exceeded my expectations. Even from our first meeting – a 2,5h walk through San Francisco, I took home very valuable feedback and questions to work on.

Beyond being a great conversation partner who will lead you to answers by asking you the right questions, Robert:

* has a deep and elaborate theoretical psychological foundation of the messages he is bringing across
* He is a very versatile teacher in many areas, but always finding simple illustrations / stories / models to refer back to that allow to make quick progress
* has a good assessment of team members and team composure as well as what is needed / required in terms of different stakeholders to be successful

Always following up and prepared, also Robert uses current technology to leverage the interaction.

Robert has helped me learn a lot of things and accelerated an aleady very steep learning curve that I had as CEO of Socialbakers. But this was not only an education experience – I also got a ton more things done with his help and the two-shift operation (see below)

Many people asked me whether a coach based on the west coast makes sense when the majority of your time is spent in Europe: my personal answer would be : it may be unorthodox, but extremely efficient: you can leverage your full day in Europe and round it up with a late session with Robert. Next morning, you have gone though an entire loop of experience- thinking – feedback – more thinking and can cycle back new learning and ideas.

If I had not met Robert in a professional context, I would want and hope to keep him as a personal friend.

Robert Lang

Robert provided very useful and effective services to the management team at one of my former companies, helping us improve and focus our team dynamics. He was great to work with, very insightful, has great tools and skills, and gets very high marks from me.

Carl Fravel

Robert was great fun! He presents his very well prepared material in a deeply authentic way that captures participants attention all the way through. He applies what he teaches, so it is easy to take away practical exercises and tips and start running with it. One of the most valuable and perfectly tailored Sales and Partner Management Trainings I have come across. I highly recommend Robert!

“Robert brings great insight and candor.”

Christian Bailey

I worked with Robert while we were setting up our business in the US. He was a great facilitator and a great help in forming and building the team.

“He has proven time and time again to be a stellar coach and support to founders from a wide array of backgrounds, stages and industries…”

Kelly Kronmiller

Robert is an absolute pleasure to have as a coach in the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center Milestone Makers program. He has proven time and time again to be a stellar coach and support to founders from a wide array of backgrounds, stages and industries, especially impressive within the program constraints of 12 weeks. He guides them to find clarity and better connect with their intentions as they forge more powerful and clearer paths forward in their entrepreneurial journey.

Kelly Kronmiller

I worked with Robert over a 12-week period for the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center, Milestone Makers program, and would highly reccomend his services. A skilled leader with an expansive knowledge of the frameworks needed to help businesses succeed, Robert helped us stay focused despite challenges on the road to growth. Robert has a grounding demeanor that serves to complement his exceptional business acumen, making for a centered and strategic resource for our executive team.

Trevor Cobb

“As both a personal presentation coach, a personal development coach and a facilitator and moderator for team building you will find none better.”

John Little

I worked with Robert for many years while CFO at AVG Technologies, both when a private and public company. As both a personal presentation coach, a personal development coach and a facilitator and moderator for team building you will find none better. Also a really great guy to work with

John Little

Robert was instrumental in helping us prepare for our IPO roadshow and investor presentations.

Jay Pier

Robert is an incredibly talented executive coach. He was instrumental in my improvement of my presentation skills. I would recommend him to anyone that believes in improving your presentation skills.

Sean Sobers

I worked with Robert to help consult with me and strategize on the next phase of my career. He doesn’t use testing or rules in his approach although he could because he knows them all and is well studied. He is very focused on a bespoke type relationship and uses his good listening skills and questions to hone in on ways to “tap the rudder”. I didn’t think we’d find an “ah ha” moment at this stage of my career but I did expect him to find sides of me that I don’t see…which he did. He also challenged me to come prepared and do tasks outside of our sessions to maximize the relationship. Robert is also very available outside meetings as a backboard or to help give insights/directions. I have and will recommend Robert to my colleagues.

Ben Holbrook

I have worked with Robert on multiple occasions: Firstly, when preparing the management team for public company environment, including IPO roadshow, Analyst Days and various public speeches and presentations. Secondly, recently Robert was also a coach for myself and senior finance managers and helped us to improve our presentation technique as well as to understand various social styles and interpersonal flexibility context.

I always found Robert as very easy person to work with. He is very thoughtful, considerate, knowledgeable and kind. Working with him was a pleasure – his clear and straight observations go always exactly to the point.

I’m very grateful for having an opportunity to work with him and the management team, prior and after AVG got public. But also the additional insights he provided to senior finance team during the finance transformation project – on managing critical conversations, influencing the change and leveraging further cooperative problem solving methods – proven to be both, effective and useful tools in the complex change environment.

I recommend Robert to anybody who is working on similar projects. He is somebody who does make a difference.

Zuzana Marťán

Robert and I worked together on enhancing my presentation skills. Robert has an approach that is straight forward and was easy to adapt to my own style. He was also had a great perspective on framing persuasive arguments with the appropriate level of detail for boards. I recommend Robert highly and expect to work with him again in the future.

Carol Foster

Robert is an excellent facilitator. He helped in every step of the process in planning, executing, and following up on our engineering team offsite. His expertise in developing a team’s mission and vision, as well has his experience in facilitating focused discussion resulted in a highly productive meeting. I would strongly recommend Robert as a facilitator for your professional team offsite.

Garrett Wu

Thanks to Robert’s work in our 1on1 session, I managed to improve my presentation skills and perception in general by a million miles. He doesn’t use fixed matrix, but has a close look at the individual sitting in front of him and addresses the topics containing room for improvement in a solution oriented and constructive manner. He doesn’t just scratch the surface, he goes deep by asking the right questions and works his way from the core personality to the outside.
