Over the last few years I’ve been lucky enough to work with some fantastic businesses. Here’s some of the feedback I’ve had from clients and partners.
“I was introduced to Susie by my accountant at a time when my business was growing fast and I was worried that my finances were out of control.
Susie produced a clear analysis of our position and recommended simple actions to improve cashflow. Understanding how sales growth translated to our financial bottom line has changed the way we look at the business and now we have a comprehensive forecast in place which allows us to plan to be in control while sales grow further this year.
Knowing that Susie is focusing on the scanning the financial horizon for future problems while working closely with my accountant allows me to focus on running the business and gives me confidence in my decisions.”

“When I needed Susie’s assistance with developing Cooper Golding and looking strategically at the accounts and financial growth she quickly got to grips with the brief and delivered the project in a timely and most importantly effective manner for our needs.
So much so that I will be asking Susie to help us look at all the financials within Cooper Golding and deliver some additional projects for us. I have no hesitation in recommending Susie and I look forward to working with her going forward!”

“Susie has been working with The Black Farmer for more than a year now, upgrading our planning and reporting processes and supporting the strategic business development.
Initially she took the time to understand the individuality of our business, both financially and operationally, so that she was presenting an accurate picture of our performance. She has supported the in-house team to ensure that they have the necessary information and is co-ordinating with a number of other advisors as we continue to develop the brand.
I have confidence that I have access to the information that I need and I would recommend Susie’s services to business owners who value clarity and high quality financial information.”
Wilfred, Managing Director
“Susie worked with Thomas Carr Dining when we were preparing to launch our second restaurant.
She reviewed our forecasts and produced a cash flow plan which gave us the confidence that we could proceed with our plans and employ the staff we needed. In addition to this, she brought in additional advisers to ensure that we have the right structure to make sure we could grow further and work with a variety of investors.
Susie was an extremely calming influence for us, in a time where mild panic was setting in. She really helped make sense of the numbers and gave us the shot in the arm we needed to push forward.”
Rich, Operations Director
“During the time Susie and I worked together we worked closely on a number of critical projects; renegotiating customer pricing, launching new products and developing the product range.
Susie has a commercial approach to finance, reflecting the customers’ needs as well as the business objectives. Her experience of new product development provided the sales team with valued support from initial concept to final specifications; both in terms of analysing the expected costs and proposing appropriate retail prices.
I highly recommend Susie’s services to businesses who want practical, realistic advice from someone who understands their specific circumstances.”
Victoria, Sales Director
“Susie devoted a lot of time to understanding our project, even before we had signed a contract. She looked further than simply the financial questions that we asked and took a genuine interest in the success of our business.” Arthur, Managing Director
“Susie Kevern has made a significant impact on our business. I receive accurate information quickly, giving me greater confidence in our figures and I am much more aware of my business performance on a month by month basis.
Susie has taken the time to understand our business, our activities and our growth strategy. Her input has been invaluable.” Mark, Owner
“Susie has brought focus and organisation to my business.
She developed a weekly report specifically for us to highlight our key figures and introduced a weekly team meeting to make sure that we review the report and make changes where needed. This has meant that I am able to manage the business instead of continually fire fighting and chasing money to pay overdue bills.
My wife and I feel, above all, that she actually cares about our future and so I definitely recommend her services to other businesses who want to improve their results.”
Darren, Managing Director
“We engaged Susie to provide technical accounting expertise for ProudNumbers, a software tool generating Management Accounts from Sage 50.
She quickly became familiar with the development methodologies and her collaborative approach and clear explanations supported the development of key features of the software. She understood the challenges of bringing a new product to market and worked with us to develop our business strategy and guide us to identify potential customers.
We would wholeheartedly recommend Susie as a management accountant, adviser and proactive business consultant. “Pavol, Director
