The results? 

Many of these firms have increased profitability by more than 100% over a 2-3 year period. One firm making over £400,000 profit per partner saw an increase of over 25% in two years. How did they do it? There is no magic bullet, no one way, but they all shared a common goal and together were determined to avoid FTI - that is failure to implement.

Managing partner Keith who was a total convert told me that one of his partners said “Don’t ever mention that LUBRM model again!” But, interestingly he didn’t object to the increase in his profit share!

What others say

The South African Institute of Chartered Accountants engaged Mark to lead a number of our annual Practice Management Conferences and a number of workshops on practice management. Mark’s enthusiastic, honest and insightful presentations were extremely well received by our members who rated his knowledge of the subject, presentation style and audience interaction a staggering 95 per cent! I believe that based purely on his seminar, firms could increase their net income per partner by 6 to15 per cent. It is always a pleasure working with Mark, and I recommend him to any practice, accounting association or Institute that is looking to hear a speaker who I can assure you will bring insight and wisdom to any conference.
