European award for business advisory specialist
Monday, 17 June 2019
MHA Larking Gowen, Corporate Finance Partner, James Lay, has been named as High Achiever 2019 for the European Region, at last week’s Mindshop annual conference, for his work advising businesses on maximising their potential.
“Mindshop is a leading global network of business advisors. It provides a fantastic resource of tools and technologies, which we use to help our clients get the most value out of the businesses they have worked so hard to create,” explained James Lay, on receiving the award.
“The High Achiever Award is something to be really proud of, particularly as we joined the organisation only two years ago,” James continues, “and while the award came as a surprise, it recognises the commitment of Mark Curtis, Becky Ames and myself in delivering business advisory services to our clients at MHA Larking Gowen.”
Mindshop supports over 1,000 advisors and business leaders globally. It was founded in 1994, and has hubs in Australia, the US and Europe.
“Our objective is to provide clients with the latest thinking in how to grow their businesses, maximising profits, making best use of time, and opening up the potential that so many business owners are sitting on,” says James. “We provide clarity and objectivity to what can at first appear a rather daunting process. Mindshop helps us do that.
“We establish where a business is now, understand where they want to get to and then work out how to get there in the most direct and effective manner, holding people accountable along the way. We tackle a broad perspective of challenges, coaching leaders and their teams, embedding a positive growth mind-set, profiling ideal clients, developing pricing strategies based on consumer psychology, and so on. Mindshop’s famous ‘Now, Where, How’ principle has a real energy behind it, creating the impetus for change across a huge range of businesses,” James concludes.
“I congratulate James Lay on this prestigious European region award,” says Jon Woolston, Managing Partner at MHA Larking Gowen. “The Business Advisory team’s work to maximise business potential is a valued and effective approach, being taken up by more and more of our clients. I’m delighted that the commitment and vision of James, as well as Mark and Becky from the team, have been recognised.”
