Meet the Team
Lisa Compton qualified as an Accountant in 1990 and set up her own business
in 2000 because she felt that was the best way to offer a personal, friendly service to small businesses who can
find that larger firms are expensive and not best placed to help them.

Harvey James Heal
I have 11 months‘ experience of an office workplace and am very skilful at providing a supportive and protective environment. My specialism is employee engagement, staff morale and well-being. I’m very popular with all colleagues and am central to team building.
I’ve been practising my keyboard skills and can now type many things on the screen which has my nose marks on it. Joining in conversations in the office is something I particularly enjoy, especially when colleagues are on the phone.
When I‘m older I’d like to help make lunches for people and to start a staff workout class at breakfast, lunchtime and afternoon tea time.
