I began training as a Chartered Accountant in 1982, reaching Part Qualified status in 1985.
Itching to try my entrepreneurial skills, I diversified into starting up and running a successful record shop for a few years before returning
to an accountancy role in the commercial sector.
Having had my own business, I appreciated how valuable a resource an employee can be. I was totally committed to giving my
utmost to my new employer and combining this with my financial and adminstrative skills evolved into a highly effective role for the IT company that I worked for. I quickly became head of the
finance and administration department, at the age of twenty eight, and went on to discover that I had a keen eye for systems streamlining,maximising output from the minimum of input, and motivating
and unifying a team.
I moved into the charity and not for profit sectors six years later, spending seven years with the NSPCC where I also became the
Northern Home Counties regional excel coach. This was followed by ten years with the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI see links section) and six years with the Association of Sign
Language Interpreters (ASLI see links section).
I have never been particularly ambitious but, through the dedication and committment that I give to any post, I have always been rapidly
promoted. In 2010 I was asked to hold the fort and run the ITI office whilst a new Chief Executive was appointed and as an office team we led ITI to one of the most successful results
year's experienced in its 25 year history. Please also see the testimonials page.
My entrepreneurial bent has never totally gone away however, and over the years I have also ran a sought after garden design company, and today,
also self manage my portfolio of buy to let properties in Milton Keynes.
An opportunity presented itself early in 2012
to form my own company, Busby Business Services Ltd. ITI, having made the decision to outsource their accounts function, asked me to provide this service as their preferred
I'm delighted to be able to offer my skills to small businesses and not for profit organisations that will benefit from my fast,
efficient expert service.
