The Black Farmer

“Susie has been working with The Black Farmer since 2017; 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.

Cooper Golding Recruitment

“When Cooper Golding started to grow, I wanted to have the sort of management information that I had relied on when I had been working in larger corporate companies.  I needed to know which projects were delivering the best profit and be able to compare different proposals.  In addition, I needed insight and the detail of the P&L, as well as some financial modelling to easily and accurately determine cashflow and the detail on specific investments and individual clients.

Susie quickly got to grips with our accounts to deliver reliable information and strategic recommendations for action, ensuring our growth continues to build towards our financial objectives.

Now she’s become part of the team: I know that she’s looking after the finances while I focus on driving sales and looking after the strategic direction of the business.”

Ecocleen SW

“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 practical actions to improve cashflow. Understanding how sales growth translated to our financial bottom line changed the way we approached sales and with a comprehensive cashflow forecast we were able to secure funding to keep me in the driving seat while sales growth continued.

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.”

information from our accounting software. She created a set of reports just for us that took
our accounts data and explained how the business was performing to give us control over our
Since then she has introduced us to QuickBooks and organised systems for us that suit our
business. We are now working on several new projects and Susie’s reporting gives us the
information we need to stay on track.

She is an integral part of our team and knowing that she’s keeping an eye on the finances
means that we can get on with running the business..”

Hexner Software Limited

“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. “

Eversfield Organic Ltd

“When I was Sales Director at Eversfield Organic Susie and I 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.”
