With over 20 years in the Accounting industry, I’ve pretty much seen it all. Over the journey I’ve worn many hats – Accountant, Business Manager, Strategist, Business Broker, Founder, Managing Director, Business Consultant. This breadth of experience and viewpoints now enables me to advise a wide range of clients as they navigate the winding road from start-up to success.
The merger of Knightstone and The Practice gives our clients access to an array of experts across business advisory (consulting and compliance) and personal wealth advisory (financial planning, mortgage broking, insurance and tax). They enjoy the benefits of working with one trusted adviser who is always focused on their overall business and financial goals.
Our team members also benefit – they can quickly bring in other subject matter experts to help clients as part of a streamlined and hassle-free process. They also get to work with a broader client base, and develop their skills by being involved in a diverse range of activities.
Personally, this change excites me as I am now accountable to my fellow Directors at The Practice, and can benefit from their considerable experience and wise counsel.
One thing that won’t change is my direct and honest approach. I’ll continue to make the hard calls, have the tough conversations, and challenge my clients and my team to ensure we achieve the best possible outcomes.
