Consistency in the accountancy profession

When it comes to the bottom line and owner performance there is no norm. Some owners charge fewer than 500 hours to clients, others more than 1,500. Some owners I know make a profit of less than £15,000 while others are making in excess of £400,000. Some owners expect to leave their firm with nothing other than the return of their capital account while others expect to be rewarded with a payment for goodwill. Some (sadly only a few) have their retirement adequately funded – most have had to lower their expectations on what their income is in retirement.

Apply my management techniques and they will make a difference.

Management skills deliver peak performance and maximum results

For over 30 years Mark Lloydbottom has devoted his life to learning what makes a professional firm super profitable. During this time he has learned a wide range of strategies aimed at growing the top and bottom lines. Working with some of the leading global accounting firm consultants he has developed and distilled management skills so that they can be easily replicated in any accounting firm.

In 1988 when I started my first lecture in Glasgow my first words were, “We live in rapidly changing times”. Today is no different – except the stakes are higher.
