The Accounting Community You Wished You’d Found Sooner

 

We help accountants and bookkeepers just like you to build a firm that works for you.

Proven, Practical Advice and Community for Accountants

ProNation is a community, a ‘nation of professionals’ run by a collective of practitioners and consultants to the accounting profession who between them have over 50 years of experience working with the accounting profession who share the same values, beliefs and desires and are committed to helping accountants and bookkeepers run better firms to help them improve not only the lives of the accountant but, in turn, improve the lives of the clients they help.

ProNation is an exclusive community for accounting professionals led and directed by three individuals who have served the profession with different expertise offering a proven, practical peer-to-peer approach for all levels of firms, from small solo practice firms needing software and systems advice to successful 8-figure firms needing a board-director level of consultation and support.

ProNation Mentors Will Farnell, Lucy Cohen and Martin Bissett 

Get To Where You Want to Be... Your Way

Enter a brave new world with an advisory-style board approach unique to ProNation with over 50-years collectively of proven and practical experience to be shared within the community. This is a community especially for accounting professionals to feel supported, inspired, heard and most importantly for firms, big or small, to make the progress they need to have the firm they want.

The landscape of the accounting profession has changed so much over the last 10 years, we need to recognise that the profession has been on a journey. With the collaborative environment that ProNation offers its members, we we can get together as a set of professionals and share best practice, and not feel we've got to put on a facade or pretend with something we're not, and to let people know what we've done, right, what we've done wrong, what worked, what didn't work, and to hear other people's experiences."

What Do You Need to Have a Better Practice...

More Time? More Money? More Confidence? A Better Team?

We know a lot of accountants first-hand who work very, very hard for their clients. But actually, if you look at their businesses, and strip out commercial salary, they are left with a loss-making business.

We want that to change.

Having worked with thousands of firms from around the world, we understand the common frustrations and have the knowledge from practice growth to technology and systems, to help you, step by step, to break through the barriers of resistance that are holding you back from building the firm you want. 

Time

Never enough time to implement the changes and growth systems you want?

Money

Are your clients earning more money than you? Are you not making ends meet?

Confidence

Do you back down on price and lack the confidence to take on better clients?

Team

Do you want an experienced team so your firm can go from strength to strength?

Martin says, “Ultimately, I believe that accountancy is the only profession that has the kind of impact on business owners that no other profession does. Accountancy can support and accelerate the realisation of business owner’s dreams and more importantly has the ability to save livelihoods, save jobs, save mortgages, and even save marriages. ProNation is here to make that a reality for its members.”
