Are you a technically great accountant who is struggling to achieve the results you want in your career?

You are highly qualified in your field.  You spent a huge amount of time, energy, effort and money to get your qualifications

You do some great work and regularly receive positive feedback on the quality of work that you do and the service you provide.

Yet when it comes to promotion and progression you seem to be the person who struggles to make the impact or positively influence others that you are the logical choice for the role or for promotion and progression.

The trouble is that moving beyond a certain level requires a lot more than technical competence.

While your professional competence will always be important, it will only take you so far.

It is also not simply about being really good at writing a CV and performing in job interviews.

Of course this matters but is not the be all and end all.

Do any of the following sound familiar?

I always seem to be the person that comes close but never quite makes the breakthrough into senior management roles or the next level.

I am great at what I do in my professional field but really struggle when it comes to leading a team and getting results through others.

I find it hard to get my message across when communicating what is often seen as complex information.

Standing up and presenting fills me with fear and is something that I do with extreme reluctance because I have to.

I struggle to keep on top of things without having to put in excessive hours on a regular basis which impacts on other areas of life that are important to me.

I lack confidence to speak up when working with non financial professionals on issues outside of my direct area of professional expertise.

I find it hard to handle challenge or questions when I am not fully briefed or don’t know all of the detail.

I don’t make the impact that I want when interacting with senior people

I’m Duncan Brodie, Managing Director of  Goals and Achievements.

Since 2006 I have helped hundreds of accountants and other professionals to build the skills, competency and expertise to move forward in their career and fulfil their professional potential.

Having worked in accounting and consulting roles in major organisations for over 25 years I really understand the challenges you face in progressing your career and fulfiling your potential.
I succesfully climbed the career ladder from a 15 year old Payments Clerk to Finance Director working with two of the Big 4 accounting firms, the NHS and a major high street bank.

And I want to help you to achieve the results you want from your career
