Data Analysis and Consultancy

Small business spreadsheets  |  Bookkeeping   |  Clear record-keeping  |  Forecasting  |  Large Excel datasets

Anchor 1

Ever known you need more insight about what's bringing your business good returns and what isn't, but not sure where to start?

Have you ever entered figures into an Excel spreadsheet and then used your calculator??!

Ever spent hours on repetitive or clunky calculations and wondered whether someone could speed this up for you? 

Perhaps you are a Virtual Assistant and your client needs data support that is outside of your skill set?

" I love Excel! And I love saving you loads of time, adding value to your small business and making your data and finance processes effective and efficient. "

Most small businesses wouldn't need to commit to employing technical data expertise on a permanent basis... hiring me for freelance work keeps your overheads low and gives you a boost of insight that can help you take your business to the next level. 


You have a FREE discussion with me so I can get clear on:

- what the current data situation is

- what your goal is 

- what budget you are working to

- what timescale you're working to

This will usually take about 30 minutes

I outline what further discussions are needed and my recommendation, and we come to a formal agreement about the project & fee.

I work remotely or come in to your place of work.*

You receive a solution that is easy for you to maintain yourself, or we decide whether I will help you to maintain it ongoing.

Not only that but when I'm stuck she coaches me to reach the heart of the issue and break it up in a manageable way. I cannot recommend her enough. It will be some of the best money your business has spent, no matter what size you are."
