Robert Shelton FCA
Rob loves helping businesses to thrive! … And it’s not just the business part: people own and run businesses, so it’s actually all about people. Helping clients achieve their goals, in business and life, is so satisfying. For our clients to sleep well at night knowing the complex world is being sorted out with our help: that’s rewarding in a way that money cannot count.
His expertise is in small to medium business strategy, valuations, business coaching, mergers, acquisitions and alliances, and taxation.
He is a big believer in education and co-leads our Boardroom Briefings series at DFK Everalls.
Rob has also created a business growth programme for small to medium sized business that targets strategy, business value drivers, and planning for clients to achieve better, stronger businesses and achieve their goals.
In the current COVID environment, Rob is also leading the “emerging” programme for business to recover and flourish in these new conditions.
After more than 10 years on the Board of DFK Australia-New Zealand Ltd including three years as Chairman; and a further 3 years on the Executive Board of DFK International, Rob has particular skills in Board level advice, governance and strategy. These experiences provide a wide perspective to issues faced even by local businesses. Rob is very actively involved on several client boards, and also on some non-profit boards.
Using 30 years of business observations, working with too many people to count, making a positive difference to their futures… That’s what gets Rob into work every day. It’s not academic either… As the owner and director of this business Rob has to be an athlete as well as a coach! He understands the depth and weight of business, tax and retirement issues, because he has to deal with them in his daily life too.
Speaking of depth, you may not know this fun fact, but Rob is a long time scuba diver and has had the great opportunity to explore some of Australia’s and the world’s great diving locations. This hobby doesn’t sit well with his other passion: riding his motorbike to tour the countryside. Rob is still trying to work out how to carry all the bulky scuba gear on the motorbike…?!
