What our clients say:

"Debra Adams is simply amazing at helping non-financial managers to not only understand, but actively engage with, the commercial and financial aspects of their operation. She has a wealth of in-depth knowledge of both operational and strategic finance, specifically in the hospitality industry where margins are tight and cash flow imperative. Knowing the content is one thing, but knowing how to teach others is what Debra excels at, with her years of experiences as a professional lecturer, trainer, coach and teacher.

For over 10 years, she has been my go-to person for training any group of managers at all levels to explore and understand the financial story of their business. She is an invaluable member of our delivery team for the Award-winning Master Innholders Aspiring Leaders Diploma and the MIDAS series." Dr Hilary Cooke, Founder at Merlin Business Consultancy Ltd
