I believe that a successful accounting firm mixes the bread and butter and regularity of compliance with the abundant opportunities proactive financial, accounting and business advice offers.
I’m a Chartered Accountant, former Accounting Practice Founder/Owner and now a Business Coach for small and solo accounting practices wanting a better practice and a better life. I use my 18 years of refinement in running my own practice to help practice owners create robust actionable plans to modernise their methods, to create an amazing team culture and to develop more rewarding and long term relationships with their clients.
I’m passionate about advocating the benefits of work/life balance and helping practice owners re-engineer their practice to achieve this. I also believe “variety is the spice of life”. I divide my time (no pun intended) between coaching at Amanda Gascoigne Consulting (my 1:1 and group coaching programs and workshops), The Biz Buddy (my blogs and educational resources for SME’s and Accounting Practices), presenting at conferences and enjoying the company of my fabulous family and friends.
I’m a mentor with Chartered Accountants ANZ Mentor Exchange programme and I’m a member of the ATO’s Single Touch Payroll Readiness Working Group as the voice for tax practitioners and their business clients.
