Transitioning from Accountant to Business Adviser
There is an opportunity to capitalise on, and expand, your existing client base by developing your advice component of your overall financial services package.
There is no doubt that an engaged client is seeking wisdom from their professional advisers to help position their organisation in a competitive market. As an accountant, you are uniquely positioned to provide sage and relevant information, knowledge, remedies and inspiration allied to the financial performance of an organisation.
To effectively deliver a profound impact to your clients’ financial operation, can be learned by seeking and undertaking focused professional coaching and training through Integrity Solutions. Your clients will enthusiastically pay for your insight into their financial activity when they can see how it impacts on a positive performance improvement in their business.
The modern accountant needs to lead the business rather than follow the business.

A good accountant will use their information to guide the company to a better future.
