Mark Lloydbottom can help you
Are you a sole practitioner?
I started my practice from my home before opening my first office and growing my business as a sole practitioner to a size of 20 personnel before going into partnership. Can I be of help to you today as a sole practitioner? Yes. Read more…
Are you a partner?
I have consulted with many firms and know I can add value to your firm. If there is one thing I have learnt while consulting with firm it is that partner performance varies and that achieving targets, whether it is new business or billable hours, is challenging. How I can help?
Are you arranging an accountants’ conference?
My seminars have been developed based on over 25 years experience, but they are always up-to-date and at the leading edge.
