Dani’s made herself part of the business and she works across the departments and ensures that the information she provides the management team is a true reflection of the business and the work that we do. We really enjoy working with her. She’s formed a great working relationship with the team and from day one has just gone with things and she’s definitely making our business better.

Dani added massive value
Dani added massive value to my team, the best support we have had. Thoughtful, thinks ahead but gets into the weeds when required. She helped me navigate the numbers in a sea of complexity. I highly recommend her.

In hindsight, I would have had Dani on board on day 1
WC came on board during our ambitious growth plan. Since then we managed to grow turnover, profit, and staff numbers, and successfully exited in an acquisition of the business. In hindsight, I would have had Dani on board much earlier, if not on day 1 to open more doors and possibilities to what was available for our business to grow and prosper.
