Lorraine Brooks was born in Melbourne, Australia and is the founder of Strategic Business Coaching & Marketing and Strategic Coaching Academy. Rob Duncan was born in Southport, United Kingdom and is the founder of Website Designer Group and Funnel Designer Group.
Both Lorraine and Rob came from a corporate background where Lorraine was heavily involved in Information Technology Support and Training, whilst Rob holds a Bachelor of Bank and Finance degree and was a senior manager in the Banking and Finance world.
Strategic Business Coaching & Marketing was started because a highly regarded business professional and mentor approached Lorraine and Rob after they had exited from their own business and suggested they share all the good and hard lessons they had learnt. With the experience Lorraine and Rob had in growing an $11.5 million dollar business there is valuable information, which could form the basis of a very powerful alliance to work closely with business owners, startups, and entrepreneurs, teaching them what they knew and to prevent anyone from experiencing what they had endured. After all you cannot exchange real life experience with something which you learn or read in a text book.
When Lorraine and Rob started Strategic Business Coaching and Marketing they had extremely limited financial resources. However, they had learnt the value of consulting with the top professionals so they invested in knowledge, especially marketing and proven systems for business growth.
These investments have paid handsome dividends not only for themselves, but also for their clients. Lorraine and Rob continue to invest money into their education to keep themselves at the cutting edge.
Most business owners are great at what they do, but often they are not great at business. They are great technicians! Rob and Lorraine are great at focussing on the areas business owners need to improve upon and provide the knowledge and experience to allow them to flourish.
