Thewlis Graham Associates

‘I met Sue Higgins, MD of Inspira, many years ago on the ‘The Business Growth and Development Programme’ run by Cranfield School of Management.  When Robert and I set up our executive search firm 18 months ago, I knew we needed Inspira on board to help run our finances effectively.  At Thewlis Graham, we pride ourselves on providing professional advice and service and we need to ensure we operate internally to the same standards,’ says Sarah Thewlis, Managing Director.

In the earliest days, Sue prepared all the information and documentation Thewlis Graham needed to secure a bank overdraft facility.  ‘Sue came with us to the bank and presented these documents, acting as our virtual-FD, ensuring we looked professional and knowledgeable.’  Now, Sue maintains this role by meeting with us on a monthly basis and attending our board meetings.

‘Although I am capable of overseeing our finances, I would not have been able to spend enough time creating the crucial management information, monthly accounts and cashflow forecasts which Robert and I find so vital to run our business efficiently. Initially, we used Excel to manage our daily financial processes.  Sue quickly saw that the new software package Xero was much more suited to our growing business’s needs.’

Always on hand with professional advice, Sarah says that Sue is ‘professional, supportive and appropriately challenging, guiding Robert and me where necessary, advising us in her professional capacity and asking the relevant questions to help us manage our finances and continue to develop as owner-managers.  Although Inspira is an outsourced provider, we think that Sue is part of our team – she always remembers the details and is available to us when we need her to be.’

‘Sue and Inspira’s involvement with Thewlis Graham has created a well-structured financial framework, where cashflow, profitability and strategic planning are managed in the most professional way.  Ultimately, this will all contribute to the success of our growing business.’
