It’s fascinating when you get the opportunity to hear the powerful and valuable insights from the leader of a large finance team, responsible for the financial reporting of a £250 million turnover business, who decides to drop that to start her own accounting business, grows it quickly, organically, and who then begins to acquire other firms in order to accelerate the growth of the firm.

Well, that person is Julie Wilkinson of Wilkinson Accountancy Solutions. She joins us on this humanisethenumbers.online podcast discussion and shares valuable observations around marketing, how capacity comes before growth and the challenges and processes needed to ensure that the systems are right in a high-growth business. She also shares her views about the importance of having a strategic reset every 13 weeks with the whole of the team.

Fascinating conversation, useful insights. I hope you’ll join me on this Humanise The Numbers podcast and check out my discussion with Julie Wilkinson.
