Strategic Planning Sessions
We were experiencing rapid growth for the past few years and opportunities had led us to stray from our core strengths and we were suffering the effects of being stretched without a plan to support our ambitions. We needed to clarify what we wanted to achieve in the future and create a shared vision we could articulate to the entire organization.
Steven Glicher at Harts Accountancy has been asking us for the last year or so to conduct a strategic plan for the business. Never having been through a strategic planning process, I was unsure and to be honest somewhat sceptical as to the value, but this mindset was quickly changed upon meeting with Harts and discussing how the plan will help our business. They have a well thought out, fully developed process. The strategic plan was truly a defining moment for the future of our company. It led us to make many critical decisions about our business all centred on narrowing our focus to our core strengths and then maximizing our success in these defined areas, it also allowed us to look at the business in a different way where now we have a defined path to achieve our goals.
Harts Accountancy has been instrumental in this process, not just at the discovery, formulation and implementation stage, but also they will be a vital long-term continuation of our Strategic Planning Process. I would highly recommend Harts Accountancy to any organization planning to grow their business

In the last 13 years, we have just been coasting along trying to grow the business with some small success. However, it is easy to take your foot off the pedal, become complacent and then wonder why you are not achieving your goals in business. When Harts initially contacted OMC, regarding how they could assist on Strategy Planning for our business, we were not sure what to expect. During our face to face meeting with Steven Glicher, we were very quickly taken out of our comfort zone, challenged but very quickly given a re-focus on the important business issues, decisions and challenges as Shareholders we would need to consider and implement. Following our meeting with Harts, we received a copy of our Strategy Plan moving forward giving a clear focus on the key actions and decisions we would need to take and maintain the momentum. I believe, late only gets later and from the re-focus, Harts gave OMC in reviewing our business aspirations, we have already made changes. I look forward to implementing all the changes we need to become the company we always aspired to be and wish to thank Steven for his consultancy and support.

On behalf of everyone at Wodehouse Direct, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, Gary and indeed all the team at Harts for their exceptional service since we ported over to the company two years ago. From the friendly reception staff, the payroll team, the administration office and everyone in the top team, attention to detail are paramount and the professionalism throughout the company shines through. Given the current circumstances, it is great to have an accountancy practice that is definitely ‘on-side’. A pleasure doing business with you.

I have been using Harts for the last 3 years to compile my statutory accounts and complete my personal and company tax returns. I have always found them to be very responsive. You can email them or pick the phone up and they deal with your queries straight away. I have particularly enjoyed the recent webcasts presented by Steven Glicher on all of the Governments Covid-19 related support schemes, and the relevant updates to these schemes. The information is always presented in a clear and concise way with any questions answered within the forum. I would have no hesitation recommending Harts to self employed people or small business owners to look after their statutory accounting and tax obligations.
