There he obtained a Degree in Horticulture and Recreation Management before gaining tremendous work experience in the private and public sectors. In 1999, he moved to Arizona with the hope of finding a better lifestyle, new opportunities and to widen his traveling options.
In 2001, Robert and his business partner established Integrated Landscape Management (ILM) and grew the company to multiple States, a revenue of over $20MM and over 350 employees. In 2016 ILM was sold to the global tree and vegetation company and they were enthusiastic about continuing to hire him for his operations experience and growth mindset. Robert left the parent company in early 2018 to set up his own coaching/advisory company and decided to set up the HQ in Greenville, South Carolina.
Robert has given back throughout the last ten years through being on the Board of several organizations such the Arizona Landscape Contractors Association and is currently the Past President. He is currently an Area Director for the Eastern Region - Entrepreneur’s Organization which has 14,000 members Globally. While travelling extensively throughout many countries, he has found time to write two books including “Ionman Mindset for Entrepreneur’s”. He played competitive rugby and soccer for 20 years and has completed 4 Ironman’s to maximize personal performance and goals.
Robert has been married for ten years, to Faith, and is kept busy with five children ranging from 19 years old to 6 year old twins. He is now enjoying raising his family in South Carolina surrounded by other family members and having easy access to travel back to Scotland.

Verne Harnish is the Founder of the world-renowned Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), with over 14,000 members worldwide, and chaired for fifteen years EO’s premiere CEO program, the “Birthing of Giants” held at MIT, a program in which he still teaches today.
Founder and CEO of Scaling Up, a global executive education and coaching company with over 180 partners on six continents, Verne has spent the past three decades helping companies scaleup.
He’s the author of the bestseller Mastering the Rockefeller Habits which is translated into 9 languages; and along with the editors of Fortune, authored “The Greatest Business Decisions of All Times” for which Jim Collins wrote the foreword. His latest book Scaling Up (Rockefeller Habits 2.0) has won eight major international book awards including the prestigious International Book Award for Best General Business book.

A private investor in many scaleups, Verne enjoys piano, tennis, and magic as a card- carrying member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
Get cutting edge strategies from the thought leaders – not just a professional who teaches business theory. You get the learning directly from Verne and avoid misinformation or a watered-down version.
You will receive tools to speed along your implementation quickly and easily. These tools are your roadmap to give you direction and get on track, as well as to help your team stay on track – easily – almost like a step-by-step blueprint. These tools will help drive action for the duration of our time working together.
With your dedicated coach, you make a plan for exactly how to implement. We don't leave you to plan on your own. You show up weekly for the private coaching sessions to get your specific questions answered and focus on the next steps for implementation. We'll show you what works so you don't fall back into bad habits.
Scaling Up is not a single person's role. It takes the whole team to buy-in, align, and take action. Your team acts as a support system during the implementation process. The more you can collaborate with them, the more accelerated your learning and action.
Without Scaling Up, we never would have been able to design Proof from day one in such an impactful way. We never would've been able to take that vision from those three days and begin to implement it practically. And we never would have gotten to that 50K MRR goal. And that goal was probably what got us into Y Combinator, which I think just took us to a much different direction.
The way that the Scaling Up process has been framed and the way that we've also taken it internally to Remote Year and sort of made it our own, has really enabled us to help the whole organization through and through. It’s helped us to just be more aware of what's going on and engaged in that decision-making process.
Scaling up a significant business requires precisely the kind of discipline and focus detailed in Verne’s practical and ‘how-to’ driven book.
Verne’s tools and techniques have been key to scaling up Benetton to become the #1 international fashion brand in India. They work!
“Scaling Up is a blueprint for building a growth company. Verne has pulled back the curtain on how the fastest-growing companies in the world fuel their growth. Scaling Up gives you an insider’s view into the most successful companies on earth.”
“Verne Harnish is more committed to helping companies grow than any other person on the planet. Really. He’s also radically practical in his approach and that is reflected throughout this terrific book.”
"What's really amazing about the Scaling Up Methodology... it's kind of industry agnostic. We started to implement Scaling Up in 2006 and we really found our stride in 2008. But if you take 2006 to when we sold the company in 2012, we actually grew the company by 30x. So 3,000% growth in six years and that's a lot of growth. There's no way we can grow like that without using the Scaling Up Methodology as the system to get everyone aligned around how to run the business."
"Scaling Up Master Business Course 2.0 is practical. A lot of the concepts can be immediately applied. They are simple but not easy because when you hear them, you feel, "Oh, that's a great one. I can go and apply it right away tomorrow". Basically, this course made me think about whether we should get out into new markets, what should be the strategy, what kind of new products we should get into. So this course was definitely an inspiration for me to think in new ways."
“There's no “making time, time is an infinite thing. You have to choose to dedicate the time. I did that and after 3 months of implementation I actually have more time in my daily schedule than I ever have before. Scaling Up has made me a more efficient, and effective leader, freeing me up to continue to build the business.”
“Scaling Up is packed with the tools to help you bust through the barriers to growth and climb learning curves faster.”
"Implementation of Scaling Up Methodology is a massive process and we worked through it together. It gave us great alignment across the organization as a whole. It actually empowers people throughout the organization to make judgment calls about things that come up every day."
“From a leadership team perspective, our big move now is everybody in the company does the huddles. Adopting Scaling Up methodology has really brought people together and obviously improved communication and everybody has their own metrics.”
