Steven is passionate about helping accounting firms fulfil their potential and best support all their clients to thrive.
It’s Steven’s dream to see a world where everyone has their basic needs met; clean air, pure water, nutritious food, comfortable clothing and safe shelter. Entrepreneurs and business owners are best placed to make this happen on a local community and international scale. After all 95% of all business in the world are small.
As a child Steven was fascinated with business and loved numbers. In particular, he wanted to understand how some businesspeople were able to generate huge wealth from their business and live in Monaco. It was only when Steven grow up helping with his father’s business that he realised understanding numbers and being able to interpret them for others is a superpower.
After A-Levels Steven started his accountancy training in a local three partner firm where he gained his Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) and chartered accountant (ACA) qualifications in 2006.
In 2006 Steven also started a side bookkeeping business using cloud technology to better help business owners understand their numbers.
By working closely with his clients; helping to explain their numbers and make better decisions, Steve realised he empathised with his business owner clients having gone through similar experiences with his side businesses and seeing what his father went through too.
In 2012 Steven had the opportunity to become partner in the firm but instead decided to leave and start his own accounting firm advising business owners how to grow, improve and exit their business. In 2013, the firm won Best New Business in the Best Business Awards and was a finalist in the prestigious AVN Accounting Firm of the Year Award. Steven also won Entrepreneur of the Year, 3rd place.
Steven sold his accounting firm in 2015 to a local firm, created another by accident, which he sold in 2017, and directly helped business owners and accountants build a better business, a better life, for everyone who comes into contact with the business, and contribute towards a better world.
