Game-changing Business Support
As and When You Need It

You know how brilliant your business could be. We know how to make it happen, with:

– On-demand finance and supply chain support

– Straightforward advice to help you grow

– A fun approach unlike most stiff finance bods

The Netflix of CFOs

When you need help solving business problems, or guidance to reach the next level, getting the right support has always been expensive. But not anymore. Because you only pay for our financial and operational expertise when you need it.

No need to spend big on a full-time CFO/FD or Supply Chain Director. And no getting stung by business consultant agency overheads.

Instead, we’re your on-demand Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Portfolio Finance Director, Accountant and Business Consultant in one. Led by Pauline Healey, with 25+ years of commercial finance and 10+ years of supply chain management experience.

We’ll review your operations top to bottom, give you straightforward advice on how to improve beyond just the numbers, then if needed, roll up our sleeves to help you get the job done. Oh, and we’re all really nice too.

Growing too fast?

If you’ve outgrown your finance department, they’re probably under-skilled and overworked. So let us come and take the weight, with all the latest strategies and software to get your MI reports, forecasts, and systems up to speed. We can also train and upskill your teams along the way.

No grip on your finances?

If you feel lost in the numbers, you’re not alone. With our analysis, you’ll have accurate data, the confidence to make better decisions, and the headspace for those lightbulb moments that improve your employee, customer and supplier experiences.

Cash flow problems?

Are you short of cash, stuck in harsh contracts, or feeling the pinch of an inefficient supply chain? Pinpointing and fixing problems fast is the only way to get a handle on your cash. And you’ll end up with a more robust operation that evolves as your business grows.

Business feels too complex?

Simplifying your processes is often all it takes to make your business much more cash and time efficient. And because we’re not just about finance, we can improve your supply chain performance and, if you’re interested, look into international business opportunities too.

I had the pleasure of working with Pauline at Promethean for 8 years. Pauline is one of the few talented individuals who can straddle both a finance and operations role. She took the time to build relationships and understand the function to facilitate provision of relevant management accounts, KPI’s and financial support to deliver initiatives for HR that had a wider crucial impact on the business. Pauline is extremely knowledgeable, efficient and due to her warm personality, I looked forward to my finance meetings with her. She would be an asset to any organisation.

Pauline is a commercially astute professional who has the ability to provide practical leadership across all functions to return cost and process efficiencies. Her attention to detail ,cash and budget forecasting , and accurate business planning , allow businesses strategy alignment. She is thoroughly professional, honest and well respected within her teams for her integrity and ability to complete complex tasks. She has also a great sense of humour. I particularly respect her robust business ethics and steadfastness, in the face of pressure from above her.
