  • Grows the Accounting Firm’s per-partner profitability;
  • Differentiates the Accounting Firm and attracts new “A” class clients and staff;

The People Power of 10X

10X is founded on a belief that the cornerstone of ALL businesses, regardless of their industry, is marketing. You can have the best service, the best widget, the best prices or the best staff in the business, but if nobody knows about you, you won’t sell a thing.

To be as successful and as effective as 10X, you need a strong team at the helm. 10X was formed when a group of like-minded and powerful professionals recognised the opportunity within Accounting Firms to take their practices to a whole new level.

What’s more, this group of talented individuals has the diversity of backgrounds needed to create a team force within this arena. But perhaps even more importantly, we can work with Accounting Firms because we have a thorough understanding of Accounting Firms.

Our senior management team works closely with Accounting Firms to develop their practices to their full potential. With two highly successful accountants as Directors, and with a team boasting very accomplished talent in vital fields such as coaching, marketing, sales and finance – 10X is the organisation that can take your Accounting Firm to the next level and help your clients increase their profitability through increased revenue and streamlined operations.
