ABOUT US

We help professionals in practice make partner – and when they get there, stay there.

You know, lawyers, accountants, architects, surveyors and consultants. People just like you who are technical experts and sell their time for money. We’ll give you that vital edge you need to progress your career but take an informed choice about whether partnership is right for you.

A few of our 2016 achievements included:

Before I started working with Heather I was well-respected and seen as a ‘safe pair of hands’ but struggling to build my practice.  Heather’s input and guidance was instrumental in helping me grow my profile both internally and externally, and maximise the opportunities to sell myself in my business case for partner.  As a result of working with Heather I made partner 18 months later and have almost doubled my client portfolio.

Michele coached me through the period of my career when I moved from senior manager to director, and subsequently through to partner. She brought her experience to bear with insightful observations, and astute suggestions, and her help and advice were invaluable. I have no hesitation in recommending her to other accountants with partnership aspirations.

Technical and Training Partner, Wilkins Kennedy LLP

John recently coached me on my successful run to Partnership. I can honestly say I have never worked with anyone who has Johns skills and background and applies them so effectively.

John was everything and more I wanted from a coach. He was always approached and available, and responsive given time zone differences.

He was supportive yet challenging and always thought provoking and had the ability to make me focus on what I needed to do/achieve.

I would have no hesitation in recommending John to anyone.

I have had a huge amount of fun working with Heather for the last 12 months and she has helped me establish myself as the firm’s expert on independent retailers and FMCG. I’ve really enjoyed our time together as I have come away from each session energised. As a result of working with Heather I now have the luxury of picking the clients I want. No more relying on following up leads from the telemarketer for me. So many positive things have come out of our relationship, not least a 5x return on my investment, targeted introductions from her black book and 6 pieces of PR in the right trade press. Heather gives me energy, focus and accountability as well as a rich vein of ideas about content I can write to help me attract in the right sort of clients. I highly recommend Heather’s services to any accountant or lawyer who wants to stand out and be able to attract the right clients to them. Phil Mullis

Partner, Wilkins Kennedy LLP

I engaged Heather’s services at a time when I was under pressure to build up a completely new client portfolio, from scratch, as a result of changing firms. Working with Heather gave me the structure, process and confidence to go out and win my new clients – in a way which felt natural and authentic to me. As a result I beat my tough year one targets and am really enjoying my new role. Nick Rudd
