We are delighted to shine a light on some of our members in the next in our series of member profiles. This edition, we meet Consciam, Haines Watts and Pinewood Studios.
Buckinghamshire Business First makes it its mission to promote the good work being done by its members. Now more than ever, a spotlight needs to be shone on businesses that have taken what the last 12 months has thrown at them and have adapted to the challenges and are looking to the future with promise.
“Consciam is a purpose-led environmental and sustainability consultancy. We help organisations of all sizes to better understand, manage, reduce and report on their environmental and social impacts
“Projects range from carbon footprinting and sustainability strategy, ISO14001 compliance and supply chain assessments to helping companies on their journey to “B Corporation” certification. In doing so, we enable organisations to align better with the needs of their clients, their employees’ communities and the planet, increasing competitiveness, reducing risk and aiding employee retention and engagement, and reducing direct and indirect costs.
“2020 was a very challenging year as many companies understandably refocussed their budgets. But we’ve increasingly seen confidence returning as the year ended, and more and more companies determined to make their recovery a green and sustainable one, which is essential if we are to tackle the urgent climate crisis.
“The support from Buckinghamshire Business First has been wonderful, whether that was hosting webinars for us or providing advice, funding support and someone to bounce ideas off.
“To kick off 2021 we would like to offer all Buckinghamshire Business First members a free environmental and sustainability review, so please get in touch to book a call.”
“With a team of owner-managers, we are uniquely placed to offer you solutions to your accountancy problems, as we understand what it takes to run a business.
“As award-winning local accountants in Aylesbury, we provide all the standard accounting, audit, tax advice, payroll and VAT services you’d expect, but with a twist. We also provide an incredibly personal touch like no other as our owner-managers have gained the knowledge and expertise on how to effectively run a business over the years, meaning they are extremely well-placed to advise and support you through your business journey.
“Our goal is to make a significant impact on your business. We measure our success based on your success and your satisfaction with our service delivery. If you are looking for a proactive accountant and business advisor who can relate and connect with your needs as a business owner, look no further.
“During our time as a Buckinghamshire Business First Ambassador, we have benefited from increased exposure to the Buckinghamshire business community, allowing us to support local business owners through these challenging times. Buckinghamshire Business First has given us a platform to reach out to business leaders in Buckinghamshire who are in need of business advice and support.”
