The Clarity member of the month for July is…Kinder Pocock! Sharon and the team have made remarkable progress and fully deserve the award. We caught up with Sharon this week.
Tell us a bit about you – what motivates you, what’s your ‘why’, what do you enjoy outside of your accounting firm.
I do love supporting my clients and my team, and sharing information with them. I set up Kinder Pocock to offer small businesses the service they need and want to help them be successful. Whatever that might mean to the business owner!
Outside of work I love Zumba! It is such good fun, and a great stress reliever. I also love reading (can’t go to sleep without reading first) and going for walks with my boys.
Looking forward, what do you think is possible for your firm in the next 12 months and beyond?
We have so much potential to support our clients in getting back on track and growing their businesses. I’m feeling very positive about the team that I’m growing, who all love to engage with each other and our clients.
We’ve made some changes over the last year which are going to enable us to scale more sustainably and to provide the services that we want to deliver.
Clarity is providing a large part of the structure, framework and education to help us do that.
What progress or changes have you made in your firm over the last month?
Building the right team – this includes hiring the right people, but also promoting and developing the existing team members into the right roles.
We’ve also had some invaluable Clarity calls and conversations with clients, which has helped us to understand them and their goals better. No pun intended, but it really has helped them to have clarity and focus in what they want to achieve.
I genuinely believe that everyone should have a Clarity Action Plan. Even we do at Kinder Pocock, which Sam from Clarity holds me accountable for!
