Upstairs above the brewery resides Docks Academy which is our 300 capacity multi purpose events venue staging all kinds of arts and culture year round – from live music and comedy gigs with The Hoosiers, Stereo MCs and Lloyd Griffith (to name a few), to spoken word, burlesque nights and drama.

EnVee Consulting Limited

BUSINESS CONSULTANCY

EnVee Consulting supports businesses with bespoke services tailored to deliver the needs of both business and business owner, primarily through the provision of its part-time or ‘Virtual’ Finance Director (VFD) service.

A part-time Finance Director or Virtual Finance Director provides businesses with years of sharp end financial and management experience, at a fraction of the cost of employing a full-time equivalent. However, if you only require a specific piece of work completing in order to meet an immediate business need and do not wish to commit to the Virtual Finance Director programme at this stage, our VFD will engage with your business on an ad-hoc project basis to support and help you achieve your business objectives.

We believe there is no substitute for experience. Our VFD, Nick Vessey, is an associate member of VFDnet, a network of highly skilled and experienced Finance Directors and Financial Controllers supporting businesses in delivering growth through financial leadership.

Nick is also a qualified accountant, a member of both the Institute of Leadership and Management and the Institute of Directors and a commercially focused and dynamic CFO and Group Finance Director. He has more than 25 years’ experience across multiple sectors which has enabled him to help clients raise funding, restructure business finance and spearhead business turnarounds.

Nick operates at Board level and acts as a trusted advisor to C-suite executives, directors and shareholders concerning the shaping and execution of business strategies and is passionate about delivering pragmatic business information to inform the decision making process. Nicks deal experience, including Due Diligence, Acquisitions and Post Acquisition Integration informs his keen strategic outlook.

Our starting point is always a conversation so, if you want to see what a VFD can do for your business or you just want to understand the VFD concept a little better, please get in touch.

ACCOUNTANTS

At Forrester Boyd, we don’t need to tell you what services an accountancy firm offers, you already know that, but we can tell you how to get real value from your accountancy services.

If you want the traditional service, of course you can have it, but we want to offer you a fresh approach.

Business lifecycle…we understand that you’ll need different services and advice depending on what stage your business is at in its lifecycle.

Whether you’re at the start-up phase, in the growth period, established, looking to expand, in a declining market or looking to exit/sell a business, you’ll need different levels of advice and support.

Understanding where you are today will enable you to plan where you want to be in the future so we offer the right support and advice at the right time. From accountancy services to tax advice, wealth management and corporate finance, we have all the business and personal financial expertise all in one place.

Sector focus…we also have dedicated sector teams. Not only is your business individual, but so is your sector, and we get that. It’s important that we know how your business works so we can get under the skin of it from the off.

Your experience…at the end of the day, it’s all about you. Your satisfaction is our ultimate goal. We invest in and take care of our staff to ensure they take care of you. It’s just the way we do things.

Let’s talk…. a cuppa and a conversation – what’s not to like. Let us offer you a fresh perspective on your business plans and accountancy services. Let’s face it, business is all about making new contacts and learning from others so let’s talk.
