Describe your business in a tweet.
Every business faces risk. ThinkingAudit's tailored support will help you understand those risks better.
What is your favourite business book and why?
Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman.
It's fascinating, and really helps to understand why and how people make decisions. It helps you reflect on your own decision making, and understanding how your clients may make decisions.
Who is your business hero and why?
There are lots of people I admire, and for many reasons. To be honest I don't think I have a hero as such. Anyone who can mix a strong work ethic with business and social ethics, and have fun at the same time gets a thumbs up from me.
What has been your biggest challenge?
Having worked in large businesses for many years, setting up on my own was a real culture shock.
I had to find other ways to build a network of colleagues and people who I could use as sounding boards.
What has been your greatest success?
Establishing a business that has grown through referrals. It means so much to get a personal referral.
What piece of advice do you wish you had known when starting out?
Invest in yourself as well as in your business.
Why do you consider long-term strategic advice important to business success?
Sustainable success doesn't happen just by chance. The opportunity to gain advice from others is a great way to help develop your strategy.
If you had a superpower what would it be and why?
To be able to teleport. I travel a lot to work with my clients, so my quality of life would be much improved!
