Change can be challenging. Sometimes you need extra help from the people who have been there and done it. These are our expert friends.

Pricing more profitably &

charging what you’re worth is right…

but we never said it was easy.

Change can be a challenge. Team members and partners may need to change the way they do things and difficult conversations may need to be had with clients. And while we do everything we possibly can at GoProposal to help you on that journey, sometimes you may need one-to-one support from people who have been there, in the trenches, dodging bullets and have done it before.

This is a collection of some of the world’s leading experts in helping accountancy businesses to make changes and grow more profitably. They have not paid to be on this page and we take no commission for introducing you to them. We believe in what they do and they believe in GoProposal and our philosophies. Find someone with the expertise you’re looking for and check out their coaching programs.

He has always had a fascination for improving efficiencies and process, starting in B2B sales as a record shop owner and a band manager, which is where he began to see the need to utilise technology.
From there Will worked within a Big Four firm advising predominantly public-sector bodies on efficiency and process improvement.
