Staff Expansion and Preparing for 2024
As November drew to a close, we welcomed a new team member – another Neil! The arrival of new talent comes at a pivotal time as we gear up for the self-assessment season and look ahead to 2024. We’re brimming with anticipation for some exciting projects on the horizon, some of which are still under wraps but promise significant developments for our business.
Engaging with the Community: Dragon’s Den Event
A standout moment this month was my involvement in a Dragon’s Den-style event at my old secondary school. As part of a business enterprise marketing GCSE, students pitched their product ideas to a panel of ‘dragons’, including myself. Over two to three days, we witnessed incredible presentations from around 35-40 students showcasing their budding entrepreneurial skills.
Webinars and Celebrating Entrepreneurship
November also featured my participation in a webinar hosted by Ignition, our proposal and payments provider. Coinciding with National Entrepreneur’s Day, the session provided a great platform to discuss current trends in entrepreneurship. Adding to the month’s success, we welcomed five brand new clients from various sectors, including a recruitment agency specialising in the veterinary industry, an electrician, a wellbeing coach and a management consultant.
Exploring AI and Marketing Innovations
Our journey into the world of AI and ChatGPT continued with my attendance at a two day virtual conference focused on these technologies. The insights gained are already shaping our approach to marketing, adding a creative edge to our social media presence and imagery.
Reflecting on Growth with Mark Wickersham
In collaboration with Mark Wickersham’s Value Pricing Academy, I hosted a coaching session and participated in a livestream alongside Mark. This livestream served as a refresh from our first interview which took place towards the end of year one to the present date – almost at the end of year four!. The session, soon to be shared on my YouTube channel, delves into our growth story, touching on hiring team members, office relocation, client base expansion, and our unique approach within the accountancy industry.
Here’s to a wonderful Christmas break and an exciting start to 2024!
