Harriet has a talent for financial and economic analysis and is skilled at making complex data understandable to the layperson.

Dan Boudreau, Nechako-Kitamaat Development Fund Society

I have known and had the pleasure to work with Alister over the past eight years, during which time, he has consistently delivered innovative solutions and strategies in all manner of situations, including Theatre Tax Relief, Group Share Re-Organisations and Non-Resident Tax Advice.

From my experience of working with him, I would comment that his attention to detail is excellent, as is his ability to quickly understand the problem at hand and provide clear and concise advice.

Eric Armstrong, Armstrong & Company

I’ve known Geoff Maclauchlan for over 25 years, working with him in the legal sector in two law firm.

Geoff joined Hammond Suddards where I was a partner as Finance Director shortly after the firm’s creation and played a significant part working alongside the senior partner and managing partner in laying firm financial foundations for the development of a rapidly growing law firm which at its peak had offices in Leeds, London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bradford, Brussels and other European cities.

I later joined Last Cawthra Feather (now LCF Law) as a partner where I became Managing Partner (in 1997). During my tenure Geoff has periodically assisted as a consultant to review of our financial procedures and structures and for a period of time he served covered for the maternity absence of our Financial Director.

Geoff has a unique insight into the operation of legal businesses of different sizes coupled with the experience of working with law firm partners gained over a number of years in differing economic times.

I can recommend Geoff Maclauchlan to any law firm seeking strategic support in relation to its financial function and strategic planning.

As a business advisor, Bob has been an excellent and insightful source of knowledge on areas ranging from the strategic to the nitty gritty - all delivered in a very personable manner. I can wholeheartedly recommend the benefits his outside perspective will bring to your business.

James Styles, Quantyr Ltd

I would highly recommend Kingsmere Finance Directors. Geoff is calm, methodical and keeps an eye on our expenditure to plan ahead for tax. I now know where I am at during the year rather than relying upon my accountant months after year end.

Jacqueline Emmerson, Emmersons Solicitors

Kingsmere Finance Directors have provided me with an excellent, adaptive service. Geoff has helped my business by increasing our awareness of financial options and assisting with strategic financial planning. He is great at listening, suggesting solutions and financial planning.

I had the pleasure of working with Harriet over 4 years. In that time, she showed herself to be a tremendous asset to the team. Harriet is able to break down complex problems, understand and perform the analysis needed to make important business decisions, and summarize and present findings and recommendations to senior executives. She can be trusted to meet her commitments while delivering work of an exceptional quality. Harriet is a pleasure to work with, a sought-after team player, and I would happily recommend her to others.

Ashley Dafel, CEO, Creation Technologies

I had the pleasure of working with Harriet for over a year. During that time, she was invaluable in helping me set a vision and a realistic plan for the future that would shift our traditional transactional finance team to one of the strategic value add partners to the organization. She did this while providing leadership to the team on day to day operations. She was a tremendous asset to me and I do not know what I would have done without her. Harriet is able to break down complex problems, understand and perform the analysis needed to make important business decisions, and summarize and present findings and recommendations to senior executives and the Board. She immediately instilled trust across the organization and executive team. She can be relied upon to meet her commitments while delivering work of exceptional quality. Harriet is a pleasure to work with and I would happily recommend her to others.

Ceramics Designer

When I took over as Managing Director, the company had been making substantial losses for some time. I asked Geoff to help me turn things round.

With his attention to costs and maximising invoicing, we were able to show a profit in the first year and laid the foundations for future growth.

Graham Handley, The DJT Group Ltd

Bob has been helping me with the financials for a new project, and his wealth of knowledge has been invaluable. I explained the problem, and he came back to me with a solution that has now been implemented. This has made a huge positive difference to my business

Keith Newman, Highlights PR

Geoff as our Finance director was faced with a number of difficult challenges from lack of process to systems that were not fit for purpose in the modern world. He has helped us rectify the issues and come out of the process with a much greater understanding of the business.

Chris Duckworth, Managing Director, SIP Build UK

Working with Harriet was exactly what we needed to overcome overwhelm and make a viable plan for the future of our business. She listened to our pain points and helped create a plan we not only feel great about, but know we can execute. Her depth of knowledge, willingness to chase up answers to questions, and her attention to a supportive and strong working environment were an incredibly positive experience for us.
