Enriching your business with proactive insightful financial data.
Helping you to improve your decision making and enabling you to increase profits and achieve lifestyle freedom.
I provide a part-time finance director service to businesses that need support in developing or improving their financial strategies to deliver improved profits and reduce workload.
DO ANY OF THESE SOUND FAMILIAR?
Your accountants only provide basic, historical financial reporting.
You require someone with the expertise to create reports which provide insight into your financial performance. Reports that are forward looking, and inform you how to drive your business forwards.
You’re not given any overview of the financial and key performance indicators which drive your business performance.
Your business needs someone who can provide the indicators to clarify how it’s performing, and give you confidence on how to grow your business.
You constantly worry about what cash you have available to run your business.
Someone providing a forward-looking view will reduce stress and provide comfort that your business can settle it bills.
There are too many manual processes that add no value.
You need someone with expertise in financial and business systems. This can free up your time to focus on the business, instead of work in it.
Why does it matter?
Historic data with limited information leads to poor decision making. This combined with ineffective processes means business owners like you are not achieving your financial goals. You are spending too long working for business rather than running it!
“The idea is to go from numbers to information to understanding” – Hans Rosling
LET’S SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS!
You don’t need to be an expert in finance for your business to flourish. I get behind the numbers so you can focus on developing your business.
I help you understand what is driving your financial performance and identify ways to remain sustainable, improve profits and achieve growth.
You need someone that cares about your business as much as you. That someone is me!
Get in touch, and let’s get to work!
I worked with Paul for over three years at Fitness First. He was a key member of my team, helping to drive the performance of the overall Finance department. His skills lie in his ability to analyse an operational situation impacting the team and to recommend and implement solutions; ensuring that quality is not compromised but cost reduced.This has involved working with other teams within the business and external suppliers. He also has excellent financial software skills. Paul is a dedicated individual and supportive of his team. I have enjoyed working with him.

Paul is a self-starter, who challenges accepted views to drive the business forward, but in a style that gains trust. He listens to all views, with his logical approach creating solutions that deliver success. He is extremely supportive and always available to provide advice and guidance. Paul has influenced the board of directors to think more commercially, and also used his experience within corporate environments to highlight different approaches to develop business strategies.

Paul has driven significant change in processes and reporting, improving decision making and enabling us operationally to focus our resources effectively. This has been invaluable during a significant period of change. Paul constantly challenges the business and its way of thinking, to ensure we strive for the best results possible. His strong commercial mind set has been an asset to the business, and I appreciate how he always puts the needs of the children and staff first.
