Service Description

Producing financial statements, business plans and financial analysis that reflect the needs and vision of real people, working in real offices and factories, selling real products and services and wanting to make real money. So many financial planners and accountants, produce the numbers and charts without really understanding the business and the people within the business.

Having produced strategic and business plans for major corporations such as Kraft Foods, I can also share with you how to grow your business to the next level including such things as brand development and marketing. And the great news is the techniques I use will cost you almost nothing to adopt. Not only can I advise on finance, I also advise companies on recruitment, staff development and performance, marketing and sales.

I seek clients that want to create a long term business relationship - a relationship that extends ideally for years so that we both see how our plans become reality.
