Robert Gerrish Associates 102 George Street, The Rocks, New South Wales, 2000
Robert is one of the Flying Solo crew and supports soloists as a coach and consultant. He presents at conferences and networking events and bangs on to the media or anyone who listens, about all things micro.
Regularly working with corporations, franchise organisations, small business groups and associations, his hot topics include how to get the attention of small business, mastering word of mouth marketing, standing out from the crowd and how to get more done in less time.
A tireless self-promoter, he's fast-talked his way onto ABC Four Corners, Channel 9's A Current Affair and Mornings with Kerri-Anne. He presents a weekly video blog for CBS/BNET, writes regularly for News Ltd. titles and has scores of articles published online.
In 2002 he became only the second coach in Australasia to achieve the International Coach Federation credential of Professional Certified Coach.
He co-authored Flying Solo - How to go it alone in business with Sam Leader and Peter Crocker and lives in Sydney with his wife, Jane and son, Jay.

Observing discussions in our forums is very occasionally an abject lesson in how not to conduct online promotion. I bet we’ve all seen this scenario.
I like to think of myself as an organised and focused person. I work well with action lists and I’m good at prioritising, but lately things have been spiralling out of control. Here’s how I intend to pull it back and keep working productively.
