I've been there and done it! Too many software companies rely on their team producing what they 'think' people need. Here at IRIS we're different, our team have amazing skills, expertise and experience across many industries. For example, I've spent the past decade not only founding a cloud based accountancy firm and working as a Chartered Accountant but also designing, creating and developing app-stacks and innovative systems and processes for my business clients. In 2011 I founded my own firm from scratch with no clients and no money. In 2017 I sold that firm to a Top 60 firm. I've been through the pain points, suffered the blows and celebrated the wins.
Through my experiences with clients (from start-ups to £1bn turnover global groups), and through running my own firm, I have gained skills you wouldn't really associate with a Chartered Accountant. Of course, I'm ok with numbers but before joining IRIS I also advised regularly on:
While I am proud to be a Chartered Accountant (ICAEW), a Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (FCCA), a member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (MCIM) and a Business & Finance Professional (BFP), my heart sits firmly with technology.
As part of the IRIS Elements team, I am helping to build the systems of the future to help all professional service firms offer exceptional client service.
