I’ve chosen to build my career as a passionate contrarian, advocating of the use of powerful financial modeling tools and changing the out-dated financial reporting techniques and management concepts that end up preventing many companies from reaching their true potential.
I’ve been fortunate to be able to conduct over 500 CEO workshops over the past 12 years, and to be able to analyze in excess of 1,000 businesses based in the United States, Australia, Canada and the UK.
I’ve dedicated my career to working with executive teams to educate how traditional accounting methods fail to provide the financial information they need most to make good business decisions in real time, and more importantly, to provide them with working solutions.
My current software offering available to Edmundson Group clients evolved from my continued focus on building world-class financial tools in a format that mid-market CEOs and their executive teams can utilize in their day-to-day business.
I’ve presented numerous seminars on business improvement and has spoken at many business forums including the Vistage International Convention, ICAA Business Forum, The Executive Connection and The CEO Institute and has consistently received the highest level of audience feedback.
I’m a Fellow and past State Chairman (SA) of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia and a Certified Speaking Professional with the National Speakers Association of Australia.
The businesses concepts and financial tools that I use are not specific to any industry – they work for any type of business anywhere in the world.
