Reaction to the prestigious accreditation

Nicky comments:

It is a great reflection of the work of our practice that I’m listed as an expert. We’re one of only 4 accountancy practices to be singled out by Sage. I’ll be on hand to offer impartial advice and suggestions to UK businesses that join the programme.

Sage’s Social Media specialist, Cath Sheldon commented:

We are passionate about supporting UK business potential, but we can’t do this on our own. Our ‘Business Experts’ have been handpicked for their advice and expertise on the issues that really matter to business. We look forward to growing this group, learning from them and giving them even more of a voice to support businesses across the country.

Nicky’s expert status comes from working in a range of companies from bluechip multinationals to new ventures before coming into practice.

Nicky concludes:

I specialise in accountancy, but with a background in industry, all my advice is filtered through a prism of good business sense.
