Mike Hutch’s Background
Mike soon became very well known in the profession of accountancy, after a partnership in Kelsall Steele (Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors). It wasn’t long before Mike and his team became the largest provider in the UK of accountancy and tax services to the chiropractic profession. A position his team still holds. But on Mike’s journey he realised just how dull accounts can be. That is not to say it is not important, it’s just that clients found it hard to connect with balance sheets and profit and loss accounts.
Hours spent burning the midnight oil in advance of meetings ensuring the balance sheet balanced to the penny just never got on the clients radar as their eyes glazed over at the very mention of debtors, creditors and work in progress. Yet the purpose of the all these figures remained critical to the business’s performance, understanding what was going on was fundamental. Mike then trained in Neuro Linguistic Programming, becoming a master practitioner. New skills helped communicate the messages that were important and clients finally became connected with their businesses.
