What do you do?

I help businesses! I work closely with clients that range in size from start-up to £10m turnover.

Not only do I help them to ensure they comply with their legal and accounting requirements, I’m able to assist them with their financial decision making.

That could be through the provision of insightful and timely management accounts, the production of cash flows forecast and budgets or it might just be as simple as being the person they can call to run an idea past.

Why do you do it?

From a young age I’ve always enjoyed working with numbers and solving numerical based problems. Throughout my studies it has been subjects that have been most closely related to this that I have connected with and developed my skills in the most.

I’m fortunate that I am now able to use these skills on a daily basis to help clients whilst being in an environment that really brings out the best in me.

What kind of projects have you been involved in?

The projects I enjoy the most are the ones that can add real value to a client and ones where I get to work really closely with them.

The most recent example of this was when a client had to produce some financial projections as part of funding application.

I spent time with the inhouse team to really understand the business, their roles and their vision. And as a result, our combined skills meant we were able to provide some really robust meaningful forecasts for the funders.

The application was successful and the client was able to invest in equipment which has really helped them continue to grow!

What’s on top of your bucket list?

Complete a triathlon! – I think this would be a true test of mental and physical strength and I have great admiration for people that have done them.

When I do complete one, not only will I have a massive sense of satisfaction, I know I’ll be the fittest I’ve ever been!
