    John is an excellent problem solver. He watches the detail and does not lose sight of the big picture. He was also a terrific manager of staff.

    I engaged John for several months to service a new, large, client of mine. They needed their accounts brought up to date and to improve their accounting processes. John has an eye for detail and his investigative skills were the key to piecing the accounts together and he worker diligently to bring them up to date. John was also well organised and he built up a great rapport with the office staff. John has extensive MYOB knowledge and his depth of accounting experience helped in automating processes which led to substantial efficiencies in the accounting function. John did alot of work preparing for the end of year audit & to very tight deadlines. He also worked well with the external auditor. I thoroughly recommend John for your accounting needs. His passion for helping small businesses shows in his outstanding results, whilst his down to earth style and strong communication skills let him work in well with people at all levels.
