Ray Stewart – Business Accountant
Let me introduce myself to you so that you know a little about me.
I am a qualified (Fellow) Certified Practising Accountant based in the East Midlands 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 of Practising Accountants in Coalville since May 1983. And before you ask, no, I have never regretted a moment of it! I am also a Fellow of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (FICB) and a Fellow of the Association of Certified Professional Accountants (FCPA). This fancy stuff just means that my proven experience and established qualifications are just waiting here to help you – NOW.
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 few years I decided to study business growth and marketing.
I have learnt such a lot and that knowledge has radically changed my old (pre) historic accountants approach to business to a very pro-active approach. More interesting for me but much more importantly, more useful to the business people I work with. 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 site a useful resource for business information and an 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.
