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 four 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.
Get To Where You Want to Be... Your Way
Enter a brave new world where three heads are better than one 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.
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.
Make the Change Today
ProNation is an innovative community headed up by practitioners and consultants to the accounting profession with potentially different views and rather than just prescribing a solution. We instigate smart conversations so that practitioners understand why they’re doing things, as well as just doing, because that’s what sets up the practices for success in the future.
With over 50 years of combined experience serving over 2,000 firms of all sizes, from over 44 countries around the globe we really know the proven methods and practical solutions that work to get you the results for your firm and the clients you serve.
ProNation Advisory Panel
Carl, Will and Lucy bring their joint expertise to you every month and are on hand through a variety of channels that we offer our members, from the monthly mentoring calls to email check-ins or one to one catch ups. Three heads are better than one to give you the ultimate blend in experience to truly support you to have the firm you want.
Carl Reader is chairman at award-winning firm d&t and Head of Accounting (EMEA) at Practice Ignition and is Chair of the Practitioner Panel at ACCA and speaker to global accounting audiences.
Will Farnell of Farnell Clarke Ltd helps accountants to use technology to underpin growth. As the owner of an accountancy firm himself Will knows first-hand how it feels to work to implement true change both for the firm and clients alike.
Lucy Cohen is the founder of the UK’s first subscription-based Accountancy company in 2006 at the age of 23 and one of the few women to found a multi-million-pound accountancy business in the UK.
In addition to our advisory panel of experts who will guide members month by month, members will be able to gain insights and knowledge from Martin Bissett and tap into his wealth of experience from 25 years of working with the accounting profession.
During his career, Martin has worked with over 1800 accounting firms worldwide in 44 countries and has helped to introduce firms to over £450m of new client fees. Martin currently lends his expertise in his role as an investor and board-level adviser in accounting and fintech organisations.
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.”
