Ray Stewart Business, General Leave a Comment

We are proud to be able to officially call ourselves Accountants Changing The World.

You can find full details here Accountants Changing The World

In simple terms, what that means is that we have signed a formal public commitment document to give business like yours free professional support and advice that will help you to…

Change your world for the better

As Accountants Changing The World we will help you develop a sustainable competitive advantage so that you can enjoy more income and wealth, and generate more prosperity and jobs.

Change the wider world for the better

We will also help you to make a lasting difference to both the environment and to those who are less fortunate in life.

And you will get all of that help from us free of charge.

You can read the full text of the commitment document we have signed at Accountants Changing The World

But for now, here is an overview of some of the ways we have formally committed to helping you free of charge…

Helping you and the economy…for free

As Accountants Changing The World we believe that the accounting profession has a responsibility to help you develop a sustainable competitive advantage so that you can enjoy more income and wealth, have a better work-life balance and generate more prosperity and jobs for the wider economy.

So we will give any business in our area a free profit improvement review.  And, subject to the information being available, this will also include:

  • Researching how your business compares to others in your industry
  • Identifying where the evidence suggests you are strong or weak compared to your competitors
  • Calculating how much the evidence suggests your sales, profits and cashflow could be improved
  • Presenting their findings in a Plain English report
  • Helping you to use those findings to draw up an improvement action plan

Helping you and the environment…for free

As Accountants Changing The World we believe that the current generation has a responsibility to future generations to ensure that the environment is not ruined.

So we will also give any business in our area a free sustainability audit designed to both identify what you can do to reduce your carbon footprint and create an action plan to actually make it happen.

Helping you and the less fortunate…for free

As Accountants Changing The World we also believe that as human beings we all have a responsibility to give back to help and empower those less fortunate than ourselves.

So we will give any business in our area a free social responsibility review.  The aim of this is to help them create a direct link between what they do and their giving, so that the process of giving to your chosen good causes becomes embedded in what you do as an integral part of who you are and what you stand for.  And as the result the business will have even more purpose and energy by being connected at a deeper level than ever before with the things it believes in.

Who is eligible?

If you own or run a business in our area then you are eligible.  It is as simple as that.

What’s the catch?

There is no catch.  We have signed the Accountants Changing The World commitment, which means we will do all these things without charging you a penny.  And there is no requirement or expectation that you go on to buy anything else from us.

Why is it free?

For two reasons.  Firstly, because we believe that accountants have a duty to help in these ways.  And secondly because we hope that, by proving our value through doing these things for free, you may decide to ask us for more help on a commercial basis.  However, it is important to stress once again that there is categorically no requirement or expectation that you go on to buy anything from us.

What Richard Branson says
“I truly belive that businesses that don’t address social responsibility and, more importantly, don’t put this at the heart of their operations, will suffer over the medium to long term”.
“Your business has the power to change lives and hence change our world.  Of course, that’s not easy to do.  But with an Accountant Changing The World behind you, it becomes a smoother journey and a more certain outcome.  And you get a big helping hand towards a better future for you, your family, your community and the world as a whole”

Paul Dunn – Award winning entrepreneur, philanthropist, business guru and co-founder of Buy1Give1

“Accountants Changing the World are an incredible force for good. They represent hope, vision and inspiration. They also give practical help to actually make things better – delivering us out of economic stagnation, helping to prevent irreversible environmental damage and empowering a generation of young unemployed people to get a start in life. They are committed to giving those in real need a helping hand, and in doing so, restoring the reputation of the accountancy profession. In my opinion, every accountant should be changing the world. And every business should work with a firm who truly are Accountants Changing the World.”

Rob Brown, best-selling author of  ‘How to Build Your Reputation’ and Founder of the Global Networking Council

I am a qualified Certified Practising Accountant having passed my final exams way back in 1981. I actually can’t believe that was 37 years ago!! Anyway, I am now in my 60’s and I have been running my own business since May 1983. And before you ask, no, I have never regretted a moment of it! Part of the membership requirements of my professional body now dictate that I spend quite a lot of time on “CPD” - continuing professional education (one of their better ideas) - and over the last two years I decided to study business growth and marketing. I have learnt such a lot and that knowledge has radically changed my old “accountants” approach to business. It has made such a difference to the way I work and operate I feel that I just have to pass on this knowledge. It is simply too powerful to hold back!! - but I will try and do it in simple terms rather than expecting you to spend hours, as I had to, working through the difficult language that trainers seem to use to pass on their concepts. I hope you find the blog a useful resource and interesting place to visit as the months pass. I will do my best to keep up the flow - but if there are any topics you would like me to cover, then please let me know. Ray Stewart
