I’m Andrew and I’m obsessed with the potential of the accounting industry..
The days of just doing the books and filing tax returns are gone. I affectionately refer to this kind of work as ‘keeping our clients out of jail’. Whilst it’s important work, it’s the bare minimum. And I know the accounting industry is capable of so much more than that.
Accountants of today (and tomorrow) need to be more and do more.
After all, keeping our clients out of jail is the bare minimum. The real magic happens in business problem solving, leveraging technology to streamline operations, and connecting on a human level to help our clients kick goals with both feet.
As the founder of Illumin8, I lead a team of accounting, bookkeeping, and business advisory specialists who share my passion for helping small business owners do more of what they love.
At Illumin8, I’m not limited by the traditions of the old world of accounting. Instead, I always push the boundaries, ask lots of questions and when I listen to the answers, I’m not afraid to challenge what I hear. It’s the only way I can make the difference I want to make.
The result of my approach is that my team is empowered to make decisions and to support their clients. They’ve got the freedom to think for themselves. That’s a big reason why we’ve won multiple accounting industry awards and why I was named as Australia’s accounting industry Thought Leader of the Year back in 2018.
