The TaxAssist Growth Academy
The 'TaxAssist Growth Academy' has been developed in partnership with Remarkable Practice, which is headed up by Doug Aitken and Paul Shrimpling, who collectively have over 40 years’ experience of working with accountants.
The course is tailor-made for TaxAssist Accountants franchisees, with in-house trainers and a team of experts from Remarkable Practice sharing their experience and expertise acquired from working 1-on-1 with dozens of accountancy firms.
The Growth Academy programme is a 12-month rolling course, designed for established franchisees with a fee bank of around £200,000 who are looking to grow their practices to the next level.
The course examines the human side of running an accountancy firm and supports franchisees as they build team relationships, whilst challenging them to meet personal KPIs to achieve the long-term strategy for their practice.
Key components of the course include finding and keeping new clients, embedding values and creating a great culture in a practice, recruiting and retaining talented people and building a practice that can run independently.
