Business Description

Everything starts with a conversation...

I started my journey as a Business Consultant and Coach over 13 years ago. As an internal corporate consultant, working within a distributor model business, my role was to support the local directors to develop their business and grow their bottom line.

Over 10 years I worked with over 30 small to mid-sized businesses alongside 3 large corporates. I worked on short and long-term business strategy, acquisitions, business development, systems, processes, people development, recruitment, marketing, market development, product development, brand alignment... the list goes on! 

During this time, I was also introduced to multiple business owners, from start-ups, globals, sole traders, and limited companies. Working 1-2-1 on multiple projects directly with the business owners within the sports, leisure, construction, IT, engineering, not-for-profit, and trade industries, provided me with huge exposure to all things business, in businesses that all look very different!

When I had my second child I was offered what I thought was my dream role as a European Consultant, supporting a global brand to expand into new markets and build local businesses from the bottom up... it wasn't until it was there in black and white that I realised it was no longer my goal. It became crystal clear that I wanted to start by own business, a 1-2-1 consulting and coaching business.

It was the smiles, growing confidence, stories of dream family holidays, better work-life balance, and repeatable profits that I helped business owners gain - that was my passion! 

So, alongside the BAS Associates Ltd accountancy practice I was already running, BAS Consultancy Services Ltd was born! 

To me it doesn't matter what a business looks like, it's bottom line, the balance sheet, if it has employees... it's all about the business owners' desire to develop their business, and achieve their goals. 

The door is always open, if you're looking to make a change in your business, everything starts with a conversation... 

My Recommendations

Sian and the team at BAS have been a breath of fresh air for my business.
After a structural change, I have needed both accountancy advice as well as help with repositioning my business for future growth. Sian has helped me to take a step back, objectively look at the business and equipped me with a business plan and tools that are easy to understand and adapt. We are already well ahead of our 2023 targets. The rest of the team at BAS have got my back as far as my accounts and tax liabilities are concerned. Couldn't recommend more highly!
