An independent speaking and coaching service for all those associated with the optometry industry has been established by Rob Ellis, a former executive with ProVision.
Mr Ellis said his new company, Because People Matter, is essentially a face-to-face learning and development platform.
“I decided to retire at the end of June and then thought, why don’t I give back to businesses and the people involved? I’ve been fortunate to work with a number of highly talented individuals and high performing teams over my 35 year commercial journey, and it would be remiss not to share my learnings and help others grow and succeed.”
Mr Ellis is known to many stakeholders across the optometry industry given his most recent seven plus year tenure in a leadership position with ProVision Eyecare. He is highly credentialed and has a proven track record of achieving sustainable growth and is well recognised for his leadership skills. Mr Ellis is also well known for his passion and energy as well as his entertaining style. His workshop content is always relevant and informative, ensuring attendees walk away with plenty of practical and proven techniques to implement.
Mr Ellis has developed a series of five full day workshops:
- Leadership: How to get the best out of yourself and your team,
- People: How to recruit and retain the right people,
- Retail WOW: How to be remarkable and relevant to customers,
- Culture: How to ensure that team members are engaged, enthusiastic and committed, and
- B2B Customer Management: How to acquire, retain and grow your customer base.
