After starting in the accountancy profession at a five partner firm in Leicester I then moved to a top 20 firm, where I developed a niche for dealing with technology based clients, going though change with specific issues.

This lead to being headhunted by Comverse Technologies Inc. a NASDAQ quoted company working in the voice recording and digital monitoring sector where I was responsible for developing the finance function. The company rapidly grew and I found that this ever changing environment was where I could add the most value.

So what inspires me. Well I see a lot of companies out there struggling and their owners not being rewarded for the level of effort they put in. Small changes could have a dramatic impact, but either they are too busy or need a little help.

So when an opportunity came to work at AVN a membership organisation for accountants it seemed like a perfect match. This gave me access not only to accountants who were trying to develop a better business but also there clients.

So why have a blog? Well this is just another way I can leverage my impact on more and more businesses. Highlighting what is possible and how it can be done. Creating better businesses and hopefully more enjoyable lives for the owners. Its not all going to be business related content as often it is what inspires me or makes me asks questions of what I know.
