We help accountants build a practice that gives them a better choice about

The role they play

This is achieved through a fusion of coaching & training delivered by proven experts, and handholding accountants through a 7-stage signature roadmap; transforming accountancy practices into rewarding accountancy businesses.

What’s your ideal accountancy practice?

One that gives you emotional and financial reward?

AVN helps you put the fundamentals in place within your practice so that no matter what your current circumstances; recently established or long trading, sole partner/multi-partner.  We can help you build the practice you desire.

We don’t simply tell you what you should be doing, we work closely with you to help you get the right stuff in place at your pace.

Speaking session #1 – How to sell and deliver Business Growth Advisory

As an Accountant your skills with numbers are amazing, Business Growth Advisory is utilising your skills to help your clients improve the numbers that are important to them.

Shane shares a 7 step process to follow that’s proven to promote Advisory Services in a ‘non-salesy’ way, AND a methodology that demonstrates to clients the value of working with you AND exactly how you can deliver ongoing, highly paid-for, highly valued advisory to clients in addition to or in isolation of your usual services.


Speaking session #2 – How the UK’s Best Accountants Thrive

In this presentation Shane shares the common threads from over 40 entries for The UK’s Most Inspiring Accountant Award where each Accountancy Practice has demonstrated strengths in Clarity of what their Practice will look like, Positioning in a sea of sameness, adding Value, Scaling up, raising their Profile and Making A Difference to their clients.

Although 1 winner was chosen, the common threads are inspiring and make great learning and insight to any Accountant who wants to grow their Practice.

Take the Test

During my presentations I shared with you what Inspiring Accountants around the UK are doing with their clients, they’re inspiring clients to get the business they want, they’re inspiring their team to become the best they can be. If that resonates with you then we share a common purpose.

I’ve personally had the pleasure of meeting and working with literally thousands of Accountants, I believe based on that that most accountants have a genuine desire to make a difference and their natural skills with numbers can be used to make even more of a difference than many are.

I hope that you’ll take Inspiration from my presentation, my book(s) and go and make even more of a profound difference to your clients.

I’m always happy to have a ‘no strings’ conversation with you too. If you’d like to book a free strategy session with me, simply click the link below and arrange a date and time to talk with me that suits you.
