Brett Winstone is a highly professional accountant and CFO based in Brisbane. He maintains his leading edge by delivering state of the art accounting services to small, medium and large businesses. His services include:
By partnering with business owners and managers, my clients benefit from my strategic problem-solving skills, value-added solutions and high energy. No job is too big or small and, because I’m based in Brisbane, I can also work on-site and help train and transfer skills to your existing staff.
With over 30 years experience in accounting and financial management, I am a Chartered Accountant and have an MBA from The University of Queensland and will look after your business as if it is my own.
At our first meeting, I will come to your office and meet with your board and key employees. This gives them the opportunity to tell me about your business and ask me any questions they may have. Like any good relationship, it may take more than one meeting to decide if we’re a good fit. Further meetings and phone calls will ensure that I have a clear understanding of your business, expectations and the deliverables you require.
Once these have been agreed I will then present to your board and leadership team, outlining where I believe I can add value to your business. This will also describe the nature of my role, my approach, suggested priorities and an overview of my fees and terms. If I am to be a member of your inner circle of advisors, I believe it’s important to be transparent with you at the outset. If you’re happy to proceed then we can sign a formal Contractor Agreement and start working on achieving your goals.
While it’s not essential, for our collaboration to have the best chance of success I prefer to work at your premises. This enables me to gain a deep understanding of your business and identify its strengths and weaknesses. This also means I’ll be on hand to answer any questions that you or your team may have and transfer skills and expertise.
If you have resource constraints or it’s not geographically possibly, I can of course work remotely and connect with your team through the wonders of modern technology. Regardless of how we communicate, I commit to being dedicated to the success of your business.
Working with Brett has helped me understand some challenging components of my business. He has built my confidence for tackling decision-making challenges myself as well as providing oversight to making judgments for interpreting key details. Not only was Brett helpful with coordinating a structured financial model, he also asked me the right guiding questions. If a knowledgeable, understanding, and ethical accountant/adviser is what you’re looking for, then Brett is the right person.Declan Cavanagh
I found the different approach and searching questions Brett brought to the table, which I would often present to the other directors, was quite inspiring. Tough questions in the world of financial forecasting would ultimately be addressed with a pathway to results, easily overcoming the perceived difficulty of the original task.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Brett and or making use of his services anytime in the future.Murray Tymms
A real strength is Brett’s calm, relaxed and highly interactive approach which provides a welcome change to many other accountants I have dealt with. More significantly though, which is core to his appeal, is a steely determination for success and years of practical experience across various industries and organisations.John Wood
