Empowering Accounting Firms with Strategy and Practice Management Excellence

At Smithink, we recognise the immense value of information sharing among accounting firms. Collaborating with like-minded professionals can unlock new insights, strategies, and opportunities for growth. However, we understand that traditional group coaching sessions or meetings can be costly in terms of time and travel expenses. That's why we have developed StratAdvise, a comprehensive online program that enables you to interact and collaborate with other professionals right from the comfort of your own office.

Throughout the StratAdvise program, we place a strong emphasis on the integration of finance management, people, processes, clients, and services within your firm, all working harmoniously to achieve your strategic goals. We understand the time pressures faced by practitioners, often leaving little room for practice development.

Our program addresses this challenge head-on, providing you with the tools, insights, and strategies needed to optimise practice performance. We tackle the common question of whether being solely a compliance practice is sufficient for long-term growth. We explore the limited growth potential of such an approach and shed light on the benefits of expanding your service offerings. With StratAdvise, we equip you with the knowledge and guidance to unlock new avenues of growth and success for your accounting firm.

StratAdvise harnesses the power online communication technologies, utilising web-based video solutions to facilitate seamless online collaboration. Our program brings together carefully curated groups of firms, ensuring compatibility based on factors such as firm size, number of principals, location, and specific areas of focus including advisory implementation, software selection, processes, system and people resources, engagement and delivery models, and more.
