Friday 6th October
8am to 9am

Admission is FREE
RSVP:
info@glovefactorystudios.com or Eventbrite

Supported by Innovate2Succeed

The traditional method of setting goals and gauging the success of a business does not automatically provide you with what you need and want. As the business owner, it puts you last in the queue.

Director Matthew Rogers FCCA and Business Consultant Dee Gerrish MCIM of Clear Vision Accountancy Limited help owners focus on their businesses from a new perspective.  One which starts with the owner.

With many years directly advising business owners under their belts, they work to help owners develop strong, positive businesses which also deliver the life they want for themselves and their families.

Matthew and Dee are clear and passionate about the accountant’s business advisory role in this process. They will share the significant, life-changing differences for business owners when an accountant produces financial information which truly serves them as the owner.

Take this chance to step off your daily treadmill and learn how to change your focus to ‘You and Your Business’.
