“When I’d made my decision to become an independent hearing specialist, I have to admit I just didn’t know where to start.

So many questions needed answering like –

How much will it cost me?
What equipment should I buy?
Where should I buy from?
How will I know if I’m getting a good deal from the labs?
What about accounts, Noah, branch or field based?
Shop fit costs and requirements?
Insurances and legal compliance?
Website design,
Leaflet design and production,
How to market effectively,
Satellite centre relationships?

The list seemed endless and daunting to the point I felt I would have turned back if it wasn’t for Robert’s advice and guidance. His energy and enthusiasm for helping me and others has been remarkable and I have nothing but praise for the assistance I have and still am receiving on a daily basis.

Thanks Rob, it’s hugely appreciated!”

“I was looking for a new opportunity and I got in touch with Rob. He suggested we open a new Practice together, with a whole load of logistic support.

I haven’t looked back. It’s been a life-changing decision for me. I would strongly suggest that anyone who feels trapped and unhappy in their current position to pick up the phone. Despite what the bigger companies would have you believe, there is a huge opportunity for smart hard-working independent audiologists.”

“I had no idea really how to “go it alone” so when I met Rob, and we discussed what he would do to help, it seemed the sensible way forward.

I have worked in Audiology for over 30 years, initially with the NHS then with two major national companies. Having become disillusioned with working for someone else, and working how they wanted us to work, I decided to bite the bullet and set up independently with a colleague.

I had no idea really how to “go it alone” so when I met Rob, and we discussed what he would do to help, it seemed the sensible way forward.

From the very beginning Rob’s input and experience was invaluable. Four months down the line and our business continues to go from strength to strength. Rob continues to offer help and advice when asked for.

We could not have achieved what we have at such an early stage were it not for our partnership with Rob. I can highly recommend anyone wanting to go down a similar route to have Rob on board, as we couldn’t have been as successful as this without him.”

“The process has been very smooth and our new practice has got off the ground a lot quicker than it would have done had I been floundering about on my own.

“The process has been very smooth and our new practice has got off the ground a lot quicker than it would have done had I been floundering about on my own.

Having qualified in Hearing Aid Audiology 10 years ago, I have worked for two national providers since then. I became very disillusioned with how the high street chains were placing more and more pressure on audiologists to work to ‘targets’- like hearing aids are an item you can buy off the shelf. I knew the only way forward was to become completely independent and work in my own practice and be my own boss. This is extremely daunting when you know nothing about business, but being blessed to know Rob as an old colleague and friend, his advice and superb knowledge on how to set up a new business has been invaluable.

Don’t hesitate to get Rob’s help – I know I wouldn’t have achieved what I have without him.”
