 “I’ve never been at my best when working for a boss in the traditional sense...Authority is not my favorite cultural tool. I am at my best (maybe like you) when I have a coach and mentor. Bob Seelert has played that role for over a decade, providing me with counsel, guidance, perspective, and unconditional love and support. Oh yes, and wisdom. Lots of it! You’ll find out what I mean when you read this book.”
Kevin Roberts, CEO Worldwide, Saatchi & Saatchi

“Bob Seelert entered Saatchi & Saatchi in early 1995 when the company was in flux and extremely unstable. In a few short years, he not only stabilized the business, he grew it into an even greater advertising powerhouse than it once was. If anyone is qualified to write about business turnarounds, it’s Seelert.”
David Herro, Chief Investment Officer-International, Harris Associates LP


“Spencer Stuart placed Bob Seelert into leadership positions at Kayser-Roth and Saatchi & Saatchi at times when success seemed impossible, but failure was not an acceptable option. In both situations, he achieved highly successful turnarounds, and his stories tell you why.”
Thomas Neff, Chairman, Spencer Stuart USA

Now everyone can benefit from Bob’s brand of pragmatic, straight talking business and career strategy consulting. I recommend this great read to those entering the business world and seasoned veterans alike. You’ll do well to take Bob’s tips—borne of deep experience—to heart and to the marketplace.

Mary Baglivo, Chairman and CEO, Saatchi & Saatchi, The Americas

Start with the Answer offers fresh insight into the past and present of the Saatchi & Saatchi brand. A story of creativity borne of necessity. How the business got taken to the brink and brought back from it, whilst being respectful to the founding Brothers. It’s important, in a young industry, for everybody to be aware of our history. Start with the Answer offers sage counsel and is a tacit reminder of the importance of humility in business.”
Robert Senior, CEO, Saatchi & Saatchi, London, CEO, Fallon, London

"Bob’s book is a timely reminder of classic virtues. These are the virtues of simplicity and clarity in setting goals as a leader; consistency, self discipline, courtesy and sustained effort in his approach to work; care for the organisation as a community, commitment to his team and humility in his relations with others...Bob’s insights are especially valuable in today’s overheated, crisis ridden world...An inspiration for those feeling dwarfed by the size of contemporary challenges.”
