About Amanda


Amanda brings extensive experience and technical knowledge, combined with a forward thinking approach, the love of a challenge and a great practical approach to helping business owners manage their businesses.



Amanda has worked for over 30 years as a Chartered Accountant working with hundreds of successful business owners in many different industries.   She has taken on the role of Financial Controller for a number of businesses over the years and has used these experiences to gain a different perspective on the issues confronting business owners. This experience has given her first hand knowledge of the challenges and stresses of running a business and the issues which arise on a daily basis.

With a passion for technology, Amanda has been an early adopter of new technology all through her working life, from early adoption of Lotus 123 spreadsheets, to installation of Attache software, MYOB software and more recently cloud accounting systems, notably Xero. As a self professed efficiency geek, Amanda has also investigated other systems and apps which make work more efficient.

Amanda has been featured in mybusiness, Australian Anthill, Dynamic Business, GrowYourBusiness, Think & Grow Rich Inc, Under30CEO, WealthCreator and is a regular blog writer for the Australian Businesswomens Network.

Amanda’s thought leadership has involved writing two books to date.

Her first book – “Connected Technology – How to Transform Your Business with Cloud Accounting” published in May 2013 is an Amazon No 1 Bestseller. This book is the definitive guide to the benefits of cloud accounting systems.

Her second and recently published book, “Unscramble Your Numbers – Unlock the Secrets to Your Business Cashflow” explains what the numbers are, what they mean and how to interpret them.  The book includes sections on budgeting and cashflow projections in addition to practical suggestions of what reports to look at and when.

Amanda is a technologist who fuses accounting know how with technology to improve and grow businesses and loves to share that knowledge with audiences in a fun and inspiring manner. An experienced presenter, Amanda has been invited to speak at conferences including Xero, Business Blueprint, The Fortune Institute, ICAA, and has guest lectured at Monash and Swinburne Universities.
