“Every Monday, I take the kids to school and get into work in time to join the team for a stand up coffee around the kitchen bench. It’s a chance to catch up after the weekend. Then we have some time to review and prepare for our weekly workflow meeting to run through client projects and deadlines. I often catch up for a ‘walk and talk’ mid-morning whilst I do a lap around the block and discuss relevant issues on the phone with a client. Sometimes a team member will join me as it keeps our minds fresh and conversation casual, but it also allows for creativity. Some of the best ideas have come from these sessions!
Back to the office to share my learnings and set any actions into play. With a later start on Mondays, I tend to work a bit later too. A Directors’ Meeting is held late afternoon. We workshop client challenges, review results and address any issues. We’ve got business and tax advisory, accounting and consulting in-house, but any scope outside of our realm, like a legal issue, means a call to a business partner. We’ve got close relationships with a range of advisors to ensure that clients can access the best possible advice, whatever their situation.”
