New partner buy-in: Everything you need to know

A milestone of making partner is paying the new partner buy-in fee. However, with such a huge sum of money, this can be quite a nerve-wracking step (especially since it may require you to take out a mortgage-sized loan *gulp*).

How to properly switch off from work at the weekend

We would all love to know how to switch off from work the second the clock strikes five or six on a Friday evening. Yet, for many of us, it feels like an impossibility. Often, we view our weekends as a time to catch up and deal with overflow rather than time off. Yet, whilst ...

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.

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.

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.
