Helping businesses around New Zealand to become a better business is what I am all about. There is a massive opportunity to perform better, leading to better results, more engaged staff and everything else that comes with a hyper focus on continuous improvement.

Every journey is different for each business, that is why each solution is different. It might be a one-off workshop, Leadership training or a longer term partnership. Let's chat about what meets your needs. 

Are you constantly frustrated with all the dumb stuff happening across your business?  All the fire-fighting, re-work, mis-communication that stops people from having an awesome day at work.

Rob takes his Lean & business improvement approach all around New Zealand in particular Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Auckland, New Plymouth, Wellington, Taupo, Rotorua and Hawkes Bay.


Call it Lean, Continuous Improvement, Kaizen, or just working smarter - Rob really doesn't give a sh#t. It is all about making simple, small gradual changes that helps you have a better business.

Be ready for a practical based approach to Lean.  I won't come into your business and try to wedge you into a preset program that doesn't fit your business. 

Engagements typically last between 6 months and 18 months in duration. Long-term, clients choose to continue to use my services well after this.

Not sure what this is all the fuss is about.  Check out a few videos I made with the team at Euromarc - making continuous improvement simple.

Funding via Regional Business Partner Network, as well as Callaghan Innovation’s Lean Funding can be accessed. I can help you through the funding process and proposal, feel free to talk to me about how we can get this ball rolling.
