Mindshop member organisation, Randall & Payne took out the Best Client Project of the Year award on October 13, 2017 at this year’s British Accountancy Awards. Over 750 guests from practices across the UK gathered at The London Hilton, Park Lane to celebrate excellence in Accountancy and Financial Management.

Based in Gloucestershire UK, Randall & Payne’s win was in part due to the use of Mindshop advisory tools, technology and support.

The client, WHC Hire Services Ltd turned to Randall & Payne’s business advisory team to develop a strategic plan that would drive significant, profitable and sustainable growth. The team at Randall & Payne developed a three-year vision, key strategies and one-page plan and leveraged Mindshop Online to ensure the plan became a reality.

Mindshop’s business advisory tools and resources assisted the Randall & Payne team in the delivery of a great outcome for the client in a flexible, transparent and cost-effective way, including:

  1. The client’s general manager has access to Mindshop Online,
  2. Vision and strategies for the client were all developed using the Mindshop advisory toolkit,
  3. Core management team were trained on key Mindshop tools, and
  4. Actions from monthly meetings all driven by Mindshop’s One Page Plan process.

For the client, the results were significant, over the three years the business has more than doubled turnover because of implementing all the strategies. The judges were particularly impressed by the way Randall & Payne leveraged their trusted advisor status to provide specialist services to help the client, delivering exceptional value whilst generating additional fees for the firm.

In summary, the project was a great example of leveraging the Mindshop tools and methodologies to achieve a fantastic outcome for the client and the firm. Well done to Will Abbott and the team at Randall & Payne for a great win and all the hard work invested embedding these skills into their firm’s advisory offering.

Will Abbott and Ollie Newbold, Partners at Randall & Payne celebrate their win.
