Practical Advisory Services: What do your numbers say?


The numbers always tell a story: Our task is to find and focus on what matters!


The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice.

- R.D. Laing


Far better an approximate answer to the right question, which is often vague, than an exact answer to the wrong question, which can always be made precise.

- John Tukey


The financial numbers, if accounted for properly, analyzed thoroughly, and reported accurately will answer many of your questions about, where you have been, where you are now, and how to create the vision of future results. I will assist you with developing and understanding your financial information by:


  • Recognizing and evaluating meaningful financial data
  • Using organized, efficient data gathering with carefully designed questions and interactive methods
  • Using software tools designed for generating easy to understand financial reports and graphical information from your data
  • Using objective processes to forecast future results from historical data using statistical methods such as regression analysis
  • Identifying key operating and financial measures(KPIs) and the sensitivity questions required to analyze historical trends and project relevant what-if scenarios
  • Researching of the available databases for benchmarking and best-practice data regarding the results achieved by comparable organizations
  • Using graphical charts to illustrate my findings with impact and clarity
  • Highlighting key findings and variables with relevant decision options
  • Using methods to identify desired financial outcomes (i.e. improved cash flows) and what key performance indicators(KPIs), or road markers will lead to the target outcomes
