Mark is unquestionably a globally recognised practice management expert for accountants. Over the last 25 years based on his unique insights as partner in practice and his subsequent roles as an advisor and consultant to the profession, he has provided meaningful and transformative support to hundreds of accountants and their practices.
One of the difficulties with practice management is that there is a lot of common sense and no magic formula. If there is no magic why isn’t everyone doing it? The difference between Mark and some gurus in the field is that he acknowledges that there is no ‘get-rich-quick approach’ for accountants. Mark works from a place of integrity and honesty to create meaningful change in how we work and think. He helps firms develop the personal relationships that form the basis of our profession.
As the world changes how clients interact with their accountants evolves. Mark keeps ahead of the field and his core values remain at the heart of true success. When Mark speaks accountants should listen.

Mark Lloydbottom is one of the most creative minds in the management and marketing of professional service firms. I have had the privilege of working with him for over 20 years and I learn something useful from every interaction. I endorse him whole-heartedly, unreservedly and enthusiastically.
David W. Cottle, Practice Management Consultant
I have worked with Mark for more years than either of us might care to mention. Mark’s knowledge and experience in the profession is superb and his connections in the UK and USA ensure that he is well placed to identify the latest trends and ideas.
Mike Sturgess, Chairman, SWAT UK
Wow – it seems like yesterday when I met Mark as he led a marketing retreat that I attended early in my career. From the start he inspired me with his depth of knowledge, cutting edge insight and positive energy. He continues to amaze me with his wisdom, creativity and love of the profession. I am proud to call him a role model, mentor and friend. Oh, how thankful I am for that meeting and lecture in Seattle 25 years ago.
