What do you do for Remarkable Practice?

My main job is to make sure that the Business Bitesize report and supporting tools are written, prepared and delivered to all our clients every other month. This takes up the majority of my time working to a meticulous checklist!

I also prepare all the Business Bitesize resources to accompany each edition, this includes blogs, Facebook and LinkedIn posts and more tweets than anyone could ever wish for… Again all done to a meticulous list.

My other jobs include blog and social media delivery on behalf of Remarkable Practice and supporting Sally with the Marketing Services delivery – whilst constantly providing checklists and schedules for any task that is longer than 3 jobs!

I am a lover of lists, a lover of checklists and a general lover of organisation and order!!! Not a control freak at all!!


Favourite song of all time?
REM - Losing My Religion. One of my all time favourite bands and I got to see them at the Milton Keynes Bowl many years ago - an amazing concert and the song still reminds me of that day.

Name a famous person that you have met.
When I was 16 I worked in an antique shop and a gentlemen in a very nice sports car came into the shop and purchased several large pieces of furniture. He asked me if I knew who he was, which I did not. It was not until the following day when we delivered them to his house that I realised he was Timothy Dalton who at the time was James Bond, the furniture was for a room with wall to wall images of himself in various James Bond poses.

I am the new kid on the block, so I am still to have all my roles and responsibilities defined! Part of my job will be to ensure all of our new and existing clients and all their contacts receive the branded Business Bitesize every month.

​What do you do for Remarkable Practice?
​I am the Management Co-ordination Musketeer and much of my time is taken up with looking after Paul and the Remarkable Practice office. I look after Paul’s diary, travel and act as a point of contact for clients. I deal with the day-to-day admin that comes up in the office and help with the invoice processing and help support the other team members to help things run smoothly.

Favourite song of all time?
Summer of 69 by Bryan Adams – because it makes me feel like dancing around, and it’s so full of energy.

Name a famous person that you have met.
I once went to a photography show and ended up sitting next to a lovely gentleman who arrived as late as myself. He introduced himself as Paul and we had a great discussion about his father's photography that he had come to see on display. At the end of the show he said goodbye and left to find his father. Turns out it was Paul Smith the fashion designer.

When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A pilot. After clocking up nearly 300 hours of flying time I could take off and fly, but could never manage the art of landing. Some things are essential skills in life. Landing a plane when you are a pilot is one of them.

What do I do in my spare time?
Lover of all things burlesque! I am part of a dance group and my stage name is Sparkling Martini. I can be found occasionally performing at local fayres and events in my frilly costumes. I am known in the office for my love of all things glitter and sparkly!

What do you do for Remarkable Practice?
I take care of the Remarkable Practice office. Much of my time is spent supporting Paul with his consulting visits with preparation, travel and follow up. I keep an eye on customers to ensure they have meetings and calls booked in and deal with any queries they might have. I deal with the day-to-day admin that comes up in the office and look after various databases we use in the office to ensure we run as smoothly as possible.

What are you most proud of?
My two teenage boys, both with Aspergers. Both super clever guys who make me very proud.

What is your favourite edition of Business Bitesize?
It's got to be the 'compelling meetings' edition because I am the meeting organising queen so it’s just up my street.  I love the four helping hands section that makes it all so clear...

Great movies start with conflict. FOr meetings to be truly useful, meetings must also encourage constructive conflict as well as collaboration

Transform your deathly boring meetings into compelling and profible meetings

When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A pilot. After taking many lessons I could take off and fly, but could never manage the art of landing. Some things are essential skills in life. Landing a plane when you are a pilot is one of them.

My favourite place in the world is...
​Sitting on the beach watching the waves roll in.

What are you most proud of?
My two children. Cailean aged 14, has Aspergers and forever has questions about what things are and how they work. I constantly have to find the answers to weird and wonderful questions so my head is often full of completely strange facts. Evan, aged 12, who has autism, is the sweetest most magical young man who can always be relied on to answer any numbers or maths-related queries at home. Without Evan my house would be short of his extensive collection of dragons.

​What do you do for Remarkable Practice?
You’ll find me either consulting with accountants to help them grow their firms or presenting to accountants for the same reason. A few times a year I present to business owners – on behalf of the firms I work with. I especially enjoy presenting the power of KPIs because it helps transform the results of any business. When I’m office based I do what I can to help the Remarkable Practice team develop and promote our products and services for accountants who want to grow.

What is your favourite edition of Business Bitesize?
I’m passionate about so many of the 4-page reports it’s hard to choose just one so I’m choosing two because I can!

First, change is the thing that keeps all our businesses relevant so leading and managing change is a vital skill so I choose Winning Influence’ first because of the Delancey Street story about turning 16,000 repeat-offending gangland criminals into worthwhile members of society – if they can change we can all change!

Second I choose the ‘Magical Questions’ edition because the skill of asking great questions helps unlock all the potential of all our people and all our clients. Did you know there’s a question hierarchy that you should be aware of?

Improve your peoples motivation changing their mindset to do what's needed. Improve your people's ability to do what's needed and change their behaviours

How do you get the world's most stubborn people to help your business win?

The decisions that people make are directly influenced by the questions you ask. Magic happens when you master the simple science of asking great questions.

How to use the magic of questions to get more buyers to say yes

What do you do for Remarkable Practice?
Digital marketing wizardry is my game.  I keep up to date with current tools and software and turn it into practical hands on stuff that we use for Remarkable Practice marketing but also we share with our clients to help them with their online marketing.  I also get involved in the strategic side of Remarkable Practice to develop the long term game plan and then work out how we can deliver it.  Most important thing of all though is I love working here and I love my job and the team.

Favourite song of all time?
 Malaika - a Swahili song.  I first heard it when the Kenyan Boys Choir sang it and we are now singing it at my choir - its beautiful.

Name a famous person that you have met.
I have never met any one famous ... that's a bit of a shame.  If I could choose who it would be I'd say David Attenborough - he is my hero.

When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Loads of things - a farm secretary, a patchwork teacher, a scientist and latterly a lawyer!  Pull all them together and what have you got?  Errrm a no nonsense practical and creative person with a technical focus who likes to get the bottom of things...

What do you do for Remarkable Practice?
My job is to ensure that our new and existing clients and all their contacts receive their branded Business Bitesize reports looking their very best , every month without fail.   Because I'm a bit of a data nut, I don't need much persuasion to go into super sleuth mode and do some nifty analysis on campaign responses and web stats.  This helps us to fine tune our future campaigns and keep our customer service level ..... Remarkable.
Oh yes, website updates, modifications and the odd bit of coding, that's me too!

The edition about habit change and the power of habits is my top choice - this is one of those quick reads that can influence every aspect of your life in a profound way.  It's pure common sense and it's brilliant - I urge you to read it - it'll take just a few minutes.  Make yourself a cuppa and get a copy of it below.  

You make more profit and generate more sales when you make every marketing £pound you spend work harder for you.
