"I have been working in the accountancy profession since I left school, qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in 1975. I have worked in practice for 39 years.
I first met and worked with Feisal almost 16 years ago. Feisal challenges our profession to break the traditional mould and approach the way we work in a totally different way.
Feisal is quite simply brilliant, one of the greatest business brains of this century. His influence on modern day strategic marketing should not be underestimated. His name rolls off the tongue with the other great business gurus. Feisal… "A voice that must be listened to".
Feisal works hard every day to find opportunities for receptive accountants to offer add-on services to clients. This allows smaller firms of accountants like ours to offer our clients a complete service that competes or exceeds those offered by our competitors. With Feisal, we can punch beyond our weight.
In the latter years of my career, Feisal has given me pride in my achievements and enabled me to build a lasting legacy. He has always been someone I can rely on and trust implicitly".
Antony Weller FCCA
"I’m an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice based in Reading, Berkshire. I have worked in practice for 35 years.
I have known Feisal for over 20 years and I have always found him to be incredibly loyal to his causes and their supporters. He is a great visionary and innovator and what is more of an achievement is he has the ability to put these visions into practice, as I have personally seen him do many times over the years I have known him.
His work ethic is unbelievable and only matched by his vast energy. His high energy and strong loyalty engages people and encourages them to be involved with his ongoing projects.
Feisal’s word is his bond and the longer you know him the more you will know the values and moral code he upholds will not allow him to break any promises he has made. His competitive nature means he will not be beaten and he wants to be the best in everything he puts his mind too."
Scott Nixon FCCA
"I'm an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Grimsby, Lincolnshire. I have worked in practice for 23 years.
I've known Feisal for 12 years. I find Feisal a motivational and inspirational leader. He has been able to build up multi-million pound businesses from very humble beginnings and due to this success, is able to mix and serve some of the best known business and sports figures in the country.
But despite this, he has always kept his human touch and makes time to speak to all his clients and is never afraid to roll up his sleeves and get his hands dirty. I think we can all learn something from his attitude and work ethic. His results speak for themselves. I genuinely don’t know anyone in my life who is as visionary as Feisal. He simply has an ability to see, think and deliver.
He surrounds himself with safe and trustworthy people who will help him constantly excel his busienss models. Like many others, I’m with him for many years to come."
John White FCA
"I'm an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Grimsby, Lincolnshire. I have worked in practice for 40 years.
I've known Feisal for 20 years. Feisal is the most energetic, dynamic and innovative businessman I have ever met. His enthusiasm is infectious and has inspired me to make significant improvements to our business and my life over the years since I first met him.
He is not one to rest on his laurels and is always seeking the next opportunity. We have followed his latest work. Highly innovative and industry leading. He works hard and brings people together to punch beyond their weight. I highly recommend him!"
Tim Stockley FCA
"I am an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Dorchester, Dorset. I have worked in practice for 46 years.
I met Feisal some 20 years ago, just when he was starting his own business. Infact, I’m told I was his first client when he went into the world of self-employment.
My firm started to work with Feisal at that time, as I was motivated by him and found him to be truly inspirational. His forward-thinking in a staid profession was a breath of fresh air.
I have followed Feisal ever since, taking his ideas forward and converting them into a profitable practice and, where possible, into my client-base. More recently, by his skills and sheer tenacity, he has encouraged over 100 disparate independent accountancy firms into one cohesive national group in a very short space of time. That is world record breaking.
I have always found Feisal to be open and honest in our relationship and to be very loyal to me. I hope we have many years ahead working together."
Mike Caputo FCA
"I am an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Chester, Birkenhead and Wrexham. I have worked in practice for 47 years.
I've known Feisal now for just over 12 months. In that short time I have learned to respect him immensely. Our firm began working with Feisal when his vision for a new accountancy ’Firm of the Future’ was presented.
I have heard him speak on a number of occasions and he invariably mesmerises his audience with a mixture of self-belief, pure business common sense and a great ability to think outside the box. I have also seen him deliver other unprecedented strategic thinking in other industries over the last 12 months with fellow Directors.
I have been in the accountancy and audit business now for over 30 years, having had 10 years with PWC, and a further 5 years with Saffery Champness. I have seen all shapes and sizes in the accountancy world, but I have never come across such an incredible strategist. He sees opportunities and angles at times when others are simply holding their heads in their hands.
He is a very moral, friendly, family man, who can always find time to deal with the individual. My team and I look forward to working with him for many years to come. I just wish we had met him many years earlier."
Chrissie Bacon B.Ed.(Hons.), BFP, ACPA, ACA
"I am an Equity Director of an accountancy practice regulated by ICAEW. Feisal is a proven successful business and family man. Feisal works in original ways and like all his clients will say, he thinks totally ‘out of the box’ but makes his ideas and solutions simple, logical and plausible. It’s one reason so many people understand his revolutionary ways and follow his work. We are just one believer of so many.
He empowers business owners to move forwards in unprecedented ways and surpass their own expectations. He provides stimulation and thought to all levels of people in the business world, whilst he encourages strong profit focus and growth not witnessed prior to his involvement.
My father started the practice and had been trading for 50 odd years in Guildford, over 30 of them on his own. Once Feisal began to consult and work with us, we have restructured the company, employed additional staff and increased our turnover by nearly 25% in one year. We are still growing and forecasting ongoing growth in the coming years.. His work has an impact not just on our firm, not just in our industry, but it has an impact on our economy.
My team and I look forward to working with Feisal for the unforeseeable future."
Mathew Forshaw BA, FCA
"I am an Equity Director of an accountancy practice regulated by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, operating in the central Lancashire region. I have worked in practice for 30 years.
I've known Feisal for around 2 years. I started my own practice 10 years ago so that I could do something different in the world of accountancy, but it wasn't until I met Feisal that I realised what that was.
Feisal presented me with a unique opportunity, one that would allow me to operate in the way that suited me and my clients, whilst having the support network that comes with belonging to a national organisation.
Feisal is very successful. But his success has not come at the expense of his principles. Family and loyalty, honour and integrity come through as hugely important, all of which strike a chord with me. He has the rare gift of strength of character, determination and belief in his own abilities. But mixed with humility and a genuine desire to nurture and support those he works with.
I look forward to working with Feisal in years to come."
Melinda Atkinson LLB, FCA
"I am the Managing Director of a regulated accountancy practice based in Essex. I have worked in practice for 38 years.
I first met Feisal just over 2 years ago. I was immediately struck by his unique ability to inspire everyone he meets with his visionary and strategic thinking and business modelling. However he is also able to provide solutions to deliver those models and make them real. He is engaging and personable and is able to bring people together and make them see the common goals that together are achievable.
I am astounded at the way in which he can explain even the most challenging of structures and solutions in ways that are easy to grasp even to a sceptical audience of traditional business owners. He has the ability to navigate a route through a business minefield with a clear vision of how to find the right path. He leads from the front but makes sure everyone is with him at all times. He is empathetic and will support anyone who needs reassurance. He is intelligent and articulate with immense energy which lights up a room when he is presenting.
As soon as I met him I was bowled over by the fact that he could provide the solution that I had been searching for over the last decade or more. I have enjoyed working with him and he has given us the impetus we needed to drive our business forward and our future feels safer and more secure as a result."
Billy Mulhern B.Comm, FCA
Naas, Co. Kildare
"I'm an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Nass, Co Kildare Ireland. I have worked in practice for 34 years.
I've known Feisal now for 3 years. I immediately warmed to him as he delivered a groundbreaking presentation to conservative, cynical, accountants in Dublin a few years back. I was one. He turned the meeting of 100+ accountants into a wholesome inclusive debate within 2 hours. We could not get enough of him. That takes very special skills that are not acquired. You have it or you don’t, and he has it in spades. He is logical, but attentive, humorous but serious. He has enormous people skills as he is so experienced in his field.
I know I will benefit financially. Feisal has had a significant impact on the growth of my business. His work has had significant impact on my clients too. I consider myself one of the lucky ones to have met and have had the guidance, support and friendship that Feisal offers. I will back him 100% in any endeavours he pursues. I am enriched by this connection."
Ravi Kesari FCCA
"I'm an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Nottingham. I have worked in practice for 17 years.
I've known Feisal for just over a year. I met Feisal for the first time when I attended one of his presentations. I must admit, I was very sceptical walking into the meeting but that first event was an inspiration. At the time, I’d been in practice for 17 years and was pretty happy with my situation but lacking any real drive to go and achieve anything further. After hearing Feisal talk, with his vision, enthusiasm and positive thinking, I was transformed and motivated.
I have heard many leaders in the accountancy world speak, but none have totally changed the way I, and many others, look at our profession and realise what can be achieved. He has boundless energy and is a pleasure to work with. He is innovative and inspirational as well as being very down to earth, friendly and approachable. I have also seen that he is family-orientated, is compassionate and has high morals.
Feisal looks at things from a different perspective and then communicates his thoughts with clarity, energy and enthusiasm and I look forward to working with him for many years to come."
Colin Hudson FCCA
"I'm an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. I have worked in practice for 25 years. I've known FEISAL for 16 years. Feisal is truly inspirational with a clear business purpose. He has a solid and successful entrepreneurial spirit and it is great that he is willing to share his knowledge with all of us.
His ability to inspire, motivate and bring new ideas and initiatives to our practice is truly amazing! We are looking forward to working with Feisal over the next few years, which will bring challenges, rewards and satisfied clients. He has become a good friend. He isn’t bad at golf! I would recommend him highly for his high work ethic and the results he creates for others."
Patrick O’Rourke FCA, CTA,CTC
"I'm an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Kildare, Ireland. I have worked in practice for 15 years.
I've known Feisal for around 2 years. When I first saw Feisal present to a group of accountants in London, I knew something was different about this man. His persona, vision, innovation and motivation captivated and engaged the audience. His mantra was to work smarter for more reward.
It all sounded simple when he delivered his ideas. His presentation inspired our firm to refine our client service offerings, resulting in huge improvements to the bottom line. Feisal has the experience and knowledge from building very successful multi-million pound profitable companies in the past. He has the right connections and passion to develop and evolve both the accountancy and pharmacy industries. Both the UK and Ireland will benefit from his work in leading change.
On a personal note, I have always found Feisal honest, trustworthy, energetic and innovative. I’m really in awe as to where he gets all his energy from. It’s really infectious! He still manages to find time for his family, community and all his other personal interests, including his golfing. I look forward to continuing my working relationship and friendship with Feisal, I believe we can fulfil many mutually beneficial projects - business and personal.
I highly recommend him."
"I'm the sole Equity Director in an accountancy practice based in the Wigan area. I have worked in practice for 15 years.
I have known Feisal for 9 years. When I first met Feisal I was seeking imaginative solutions to client issues that I faced. Feisal most certainly provided some. This enabled my business to grow and develop. Since those early days I have witnessed an individual with an amazing entrepreneurial spirit that has convinced the most stoic of professions to follow his advice and build better businesses.
His boundless energy seems to enable him to analyse situations, find and develop opportunity within them before refining them further to achieve maximum results. His positive attitude towards business has been infectious and is most definitely a contributory factor towards the sustained growth in my business. Not only is he a great business person but I have also been privileged to experience his generosity of nature first hand. On more than one occasion he has extended his hospitality, and that of his family, to me. His ethical and moral attitude purveys every aspect of his life.
I have enjoyed the long standing relationship with him and hope that it continues for many years to come."
Gloria Murray FAIA
"I'm an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating outside Glasgow. I have worked in practice for 24 years.
I've known Feisal for 2 years. Our firm began working with Feisal in March 2018. He is a very focused individual, who thinks outside the box and is not frightened to think big. Over the past two years, I’ve seen him come up with and deliver two unprecedented strategic models which will create a fantastic legacy for us all.
I have run my own Accountancy Practice for over 23 years and in this time I’ve met many business leaders. I can honestly say that I have never encountered a more active, diligent and dedicated leader.
Feisal is not frightened of hard work and I’ve seen him work many long hours to ensure his vision comes to fruition in timescales that are hard to believe – I don’t know where he gets his energy from.
He is a strategic thinker who also manages to make things happen, which is a rare combination! I’m looking forward to continuing our business relationship well into the future."
David Houston CA
"I'm an Equity Director of a professionally registered accountancy practice operating in Glasgow. I have been in business on my own account for over 35 years, and first met Feisal in March 2018, at a seminar where I expected to be bored by yet another self-proclaimed guru in the art of inspirational speaking. How wrong could I be!
I have listened to many motivational speakers and trainers of positive mindset and "can do" attitudes. I have often been told that if I reach for the ceiling I will never get off the ground. However since I met Feisal, I know that the ceiling is only the starting point to a destination way beyond my wildest imagination, and there is no limit to this man’s ambition. His ability lies not just in putting forward the message, but also putting the message into practice and managing to take with him any number of serious minded professionals in the accountancy sector.
In the time that I have known Feisal I have completely transformed my business strategy and philosophy, which has turned my office into a much happier, more motivated and more rewarding workplace. And the best thing is the knowledge that behind you is a man you can trust implicitly, and who you can depend upon and also share a laugh with when the time is right, and I look forward to continuing to work with him over the coming years."

"I’m an Equity Director of a regulated chartered accountancy practice operating in Manchester and Preston. I have worked in practice for 16 years.
I’ve known Feisal for 2 years. Feisal is a visionary businessman with a unique blend of strategic thinking, energy, fearlessness and making things that seem impossible happen.
His style has a perfect mix of collaborative working and leading from the front and he switches between the two with great ease and at the right time. Feisal develops business opportunities by identifying gaps in markets which others don’t see. He has an incredible talent to make his team believe and empowers them to reach targets that they would not dare to aim for without his leadership. Feisal passionately believes in doing the right thing and demonstrates a high level of integrity and empathy in caring for others. I am glad that our paths crossed and we are working with Feisal on some amazing projects which are innovative, challenging but also a great deal of fun."

"I am an Equity Director and founding partner in a regulated accountancy practise based in Galway, Ireland. I have worked in practice for 15 years.
I have known Feisal for around 2 years. Over that time, his enthusiastic and strategic approach to business has been exceptional. Feisal has a strong ability to implement and drive strategic change in both businesses and the actual industry that those businesses operate in. At the same time he brings audience after audience along with him which, sets him apart from others.
Feisal is a people's man, he gives everyone that asks his time with his positive, energetic attitude and is always humble in his approach. In the period I have worked and got to know Feisal, I hold him in the highest of regard and consider it an honour to be an associate of his.
I look forward to continue working with Feisal for years to come and the journey that he will take me and so many others on. Wherever he goes, people will follow for the success he creates."

I’ve known Feisal for around 2 years. I have worked very closely with him, especially over the last year. I think of him as a big picture guy with an immense ability to deliver unprecedented and valuable projects.
He is very bright with an amazing ability to capture an audience for hours on end. He has incredible energy and enthusiasm and it is very difficult not to want to be involved with whatever project he is driving forward. On a personal level he is great company and displays all the traits you would like in a colleague and friend."
Claire Rynne FCA
"On 1st June 2019 RTW became part of a special group of over 100 independent accountants, combining a wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise. I have worked in practice for 16 years.
This allowed smaller firms to become part of a ‘Firm of the Future’ concept to provide expert services on a global scale.
This mammoth task all came together as a result of the dedication, motivation and vision of one Feisal Nahaboo. His enthusiasm and energy knows no bounds and he works tirelessly to deliver.
As an Equity Director of RTW, a firm regulated by Chartered Accountants Ireland, my fellow Director Gerry Tully and I are looking forward to working with Feisal in the coming years and would not hesitate to back him in any endeavours he pursues."
Liam Burns FCCA, CTA, BBS
"I'm an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Dublin. I have worked in practice for 15 years.
I've known Feisal for over a year. Having been introduced to Feisal in early 2019, I quickly knew that his vision, ability to think outside the norm and his ambitious, competitive nature would be an enormous asset to any person or business in a position to work with him.
He embeds positivity in every message he delivers and leads by example, putting every ounce of effort he possibly can into everything he does - business, sport and even just-for-fun challenges.
Since working with him over the last year, I have witnessed him deliver on a massive project within our industry and I believe that he can help change the industry by significantly increasing profitability and value of firms in the near future.
Feisal is a genuine character, and an exceptional businessman. I look forward to the next few years working alongside him"
Peter Pring FCA
"I'm an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Romsey, Hampshire. I have worked in practice for 34 years.
I've known Feisal for 16 years. Working with Feisal has inspired me to look beyond the accountancy world I was brought up in. His influence is reflected in our firm being a dynamic business with good growth, even throughout the recent years of recession.
We now have an image and reputation of a firm much larger than we actually are, and not only does this attract new clients who might not previously have come to us for advice, but also other practitioners who come to us because of the wide range of opportunities we can now offer as a direct result of working with Feisal. A man who makes major promises and delivers beyond them. Every member of our team has earned more rewards because of the increased profits Feisal has helped us achieve – thank you Feisal."
Mike Ogilvie FCA
Eastbourne, East Sussex
I am an Equity Director of a regulated Chartered Accountancy practice operating in Eastbourne, East Sussex. I have worked in practice for 40 years.
I have known Feisal for 16 years. Feisal is a classic oxymoron in that he has been able to convert rooms full of boring accountants into raving fans who people like to talk to – a miracle worker! He is a visionary businessman who is spreading his enthusiasm and skills to professional accountants. His work on creating leading accountancy and pharmacy models has beeen unprecedented and highly innovative.
I am not surprised industries are following his strategies and work. They are often simple, clear to understand but almost impossible to implement. He knows this. This is why he explores them. He builds models in a robust and fast manner. Simultaneously he creates for others major barriers to entry to compete with his clients.
He operates for the long term and for the welfare of his clients. He works longer hours than anyone I know. I wish Feisal continued success."
Mukesh Pandit FCCA
"I'm an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Ilford, Essex. I have worked in practice for 30 years.

As an individual, he is a pleasure to work with. A very inspiring character, and you always know something innovative is about to happen when he speaks. I’ve seen him in action and he engages audiences with his ehthusiasm and personality. He creates trust through his hard work and results, and the audiences are keen to engage with him and join his concepts.
He has certainly been an important influencer in change and I know he wishes to continue ‘pushing boundaries’.
Our firm is proud to have been associated with Feisal over the years."

Feisal’s vision and direction are incomparable and he is one of the most forward-thinking people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He always ensures that he has time to set aside for relevant ethical and moral issues and I have always found him to be professional, courteous and inspirational.
His positive attitude towards business has allowed many accountancy firms to adopt his philosophies and strategies to achieve great success. I believe we can all significantly profit with him by our side.
I am delighted to have enjoyed a long-standing business relationship with this man and long may it continue!"

Feisal is a true business visionary, a strategic revolutionary with the skills of ‘Blue Sky’ thinking. I have never met a man with as much energy, drive and focus. Feisal can walk and talk with any and all types of business owners and classes of people and has the unique ability, skill and gift to unite them all.
I have always found Feisal to be polite and humble and to never forget when he reaches for the sky that there are others who he needs to support that have given their allegiance to him. When Feisal speaks I will listen intently as there is always something new to learn."
Graham Spellman ICPA(Fellow), B.Soc. SC(Hons)
"I'm an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Newbury, Berkshire. I have worked in practice for 39 years.
I have known Feisal for 2 years. Over a very short period of time, Feisal's inspiration and infectious enthusiasm have propelled our small accountancy practice to exciting new levels. He is a true visionary who understands and has empathy for all of the businesses and individuals that he impacts. The manner in which he combines innovation, integrity, inexhaustible energy and the will to succeed never fails to set him amongst the foremost role models in both business and social environments today.
In Feisal's world, obstacles are only there to learn from and overcome, on the journey to a brighter future. It has been a real pleasure to work with him and be inspired by such an extraordinary motivator with a clear strategic mind and sense of purpose.

Feisal is a smart businessman, an "outside the box thinker". Feisal finds time for anyone who needs his help. He has amazing memory, remembering names of people he meets. I find Feisal to be sincere, very approachable and finds time to assist anyone he can, whether you are from a small business or from a large business. This quality has helped others be very loyal to him. He has used his skills to successfully attract other accountants to join and embrace his ideas.

I’ve known Feisal for over 3 years. Feisal is a force of nature. He has unlimited reserves of energy and if he decides that something needs to be done, it will get done. In any given situation, he has an innate ability to focus on the critical factor, to divine a range of possible solutions and to hone in on the optimum path to obtain the desired outcome.

Throughout my time of knowing and dealing with Feisal I can say that he has shown throughout absolute and complete integrity in all aspects of our business relationship.
His tireless efforts to bring together so many accounting firms to mutually support one another is testimony to an ethos of hard work, accompanied with intelligence and a comprehensive understanding of the accounting profession and its idiosyncrasies. It is the continuous display of Feisal’s integrity which in my opinion has resulted in so many intelligent professional men and women being prepared to follow his inspiration and vision of the future.
My practice has significantly benefited from being associated with Feisal and long may this continue."
Shaun Craven FCCA
"I am an Equity Director of a 45 year-old regulated accountancy practice based in Buckinghamshire. I have worked in practice for 31 years. I was blown away by Feisal’s strategy that he had developed to disrupt our industry.
Since that time, true to his word, he has worked tirelessly to implement his strategy, the likes of which I do not believe our industry will experience at this scale ever again. Never before have I seen anyone with such energy, motivation and enthusiasm to achieve their goal, and just being around this guy is truly inspirational.
Our business and me personally, have learned more about strategic thinking and achieved more by way of growth and increased profitability in the 2 years that we have been associated with Feisal than in the previous 43 years without him.

We have known Feisal for just over 2 years and I have never met anyone else who has so much drive, energy and commitment. He works tirelessly to achieve the goals he sets and to keep the promises he makes to others while always planning the next move.
He unbelievably even finds time to play golf and he even succeeds at that too! He is enjoyable to work with."

I have known Feisal for around 2 years. I first met Feisal through a mutual accountancy peer who suggested that I listen to his business plan for accountants.
His vision, enthusiasm and determination to achieve his goal came across extremely well. This convinced me to be a part of his vision of the future. He has a passion for business, boundless energy and is not afraid of hard work.
My team and I look forward to a long and successful business and personal relationship as part of Feisal's vision of the future. We view him as a leader in change."
Jeff Mendlesohn FCA
"I am an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Northwest London. I have worked in practice for 42 years.
I have known Feisal for around 3 years. I first met Feisal through a mutual friend who suggested that I listen to his business plan for accountants.
At first I was sceptical (for about 2 minutes) but his vision and enthusiasm won me over and I have been a vocal advocate of him and his work ever since. He is a true force of nature.
In my accountancy practice my fellow colleagues and I are delighted to subscribe to Feisal’s vision and we look forward to a long and successful business and personal relationship. The fact that he has such a vast dedicated following from fellow accountancy colleagues speaks volumes. Wherever he walks, professional audiences will follow hanging onto his coattail."
Tim Dipple FCA
"I am an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire. I have worked in practice for 29 years.
I have known Feisal for 3 years. In a short space of time, he has achieved what was previously unthinkable. He has convinced hundreds of prudent accountants that their tried and tested historical models could be thrown out of the window and replaced by a coordinated movement of smaller firms. He has quickly built all of our trust and confidence in his ability to deliver a visionary plan.
He also seems to have limitless energy and a capacity to solve whatever problem is put before him. My fellow directors and I consider ourselves most fortunate to be involved with him."
Richard Plasek FCMA, CGMA, MBA
"I'm an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Central London. I have worked in practice for 17 years.
I've known Feisal since 2010. I find Feisal a very motivational and inspirational leader. Over the years Feisal has proven time and time again that he can build multi-million pound profitable businesses from extremely unexpected beginnings.
I have seen Feisal in action, transforming the way the accounting profession operates. Feisal provides huge motivation to the accountancy industry allowing accountants to upscale offerings, grab opportunities, and implement complex strategies in order to deliver unprecedented outcomes.
Feisal's ability to bring unprecedented initiatives whilst inspiring hundreds of us is a very rare trait to find in business. The impact on my practice has been amazing. We are now achieving constant double digit growth every 6 months. Feisal is a forward thinker as well as a floor operative ensuring strategies are implemented quickly and effectively. I am extremely happy with his ongoing support."
Eamon McManus FCCA
"I am an Equity Director of an accountancy practice based in the South West of England.
What excited me about Feisal right off the bat was his no nonsense, insightful and out of the box thinking. With change comes opportunity and I immediately saw the huge value that Feisal’s vision for the industry could deliver, both individually and collectively for the accountancy practices.
Whilst Feisal’s big picture, strategic thinking has been incredibly inspiring, what has impressed me most is his thorough understanding of the accountancy sector and the small business owner. He has built a hugely successful career supporting and consulting for accountants, but what’s clear to me is that at the core of that success is a human understanding of the fact that we are far more than business owners. We’re fathers and husbands, individuals with our own dreams and aspirations.
Feisal has had my back more than once in the short time that I’ve known him and it’s that integrity, sense of fairness and unwavering commitment to the community that he’s worked so hard to find that so endears him to me and to all my newfound accountancy colleagues.
An exceptional mind for exceptional times and I couldn’t be anymore happier that he’s in my corner."

He has made a remarkable success of bringing accountants together to share knowledge and expertise to better serve our clients.
My team and I are delighted to be part of his work - and his strategy and vision on the ‘Firm of the Future’.
In my experience he has always shown great integrity in his dealings with people and treats everyone as equal, no matter what their background or size. With his ability to see opportunities that many do not, he is able to make major promises which he delivers on. Subsequently, crowds of respectable professionals follow him.
We are looking forward to working with him for many years to come."

I first met Feisal at one of his events 2 years ago. Feisal explained how he had been working with accountants for most of his working life, and that he had a vision to develop a strategy for an "accountancy of the future" concept.
His work has been built on faith and trust, and his drive, enthusiasm and dedication to the people involved, together with his integrity, has earned him my trust, and the trust of all the likeminded peers who have joined together in developing this concept.

"I am an Equity Director of a regulated chartered accountancy practice operating in Honley near Holmfirth in West Yorkshire. I have worked in practice for 25 years.
I’ve known Feisal for 2 years and I wish I had known him longer. Feisal is a source of constant amazement for his sheer never-ending drive and inspiration. He has boundless energy and passion. Based on his strategic thinking and creating a path of where we should go, we have been able to translate this passion to increase the value of our firm and deliver better services to our clients. He has added value to our firm.
His style means he can lead from the front and also be collaborative so that the results achieved seem like they were there waiting for us to discover them. Feisal is able to identify and develop business opportunities which others don't realise are there or don’t see. He has an incredible talent and has empowered us to achieve fantastic results in relatively little time and make me wonder why we did not see this before.
Feisal has a high level of integrity and empathy and is passionate about caring for others. I wish our paths crossed sooner as he is also a great person to know."
Graeme Hindley FCCA, BSc(Hons)
"I’m an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Warrington, Cheshire. I have worked in practice for 18 years.
I’ve known Feisal since our firm started working with him just over 2 years ago, albeit my partner first met him 20 years ago. From the moment we started working with Feisal it was very clear that he has that rare ability to identify opportunities where others don’t, then dedicates his time to planning the strategy around how best to implement and deliver this for maximum effect for both us and our clients alike. He is a true visionary.
Feisal has a drive and ambition like no-one I’ve ever met before. The passion he has for the projects he undertakes and his commitment to us (the accountants he drives and supports) are testament to the type of man Feisal is. A man that you can truly rely on to deliver results.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him."

"I'm an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Dublin. I have worked in practice for 40 years.
I've known Feisal for 2 years. Our firm began working with Feisal in April 2018. His vision is exceptional and he works tirelessly to deliver incredible strategic models with our fellow Directors.

Richard O'Brien CPA
"I'm an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in Cork. I have worked in practice for 35 years.
I've known Feisal for 2 years. I met Feisal for the first time when I attended one of his presentations. That first event was an inspiration. Having been an accountant in practice for over thirty years I was getting a little complacent. I was working on autopilot and coasting along just fine.
But, having witnessed the energy, passion and innovation at that first meeting I was inspired and rejuvenated. There is now a new energy within me and in the last two years I have doubled the size of my practice. It's a case of working smarter, not harder and I attribute this solely to the seeds of inspiration that were sown by Feisal at the presentation.
Feisal is a brilliant motivator, an innovative thinker and a talented leader. I look forward to working with him well into the future."

Michael O'Mahony FCCA
"I'm an Equity Director of a regulated accountancy practice operating in County Cork, Ireland. I have worked in practice for 33 years.
His strategy and vision to form a ‘Firm of the Future‘ concept was ambitious but I had no doubt from meeting him that he would achieve his goals and I knew from day 1 that this was a business relationship worth pursuing. In more than 30 years practising in accountancy, I have never known anyone with Feisal's ability to bring professionals together, organise and inspire them. I feel very differently about my firm. He has given me belief and we are developing daily as a result.
I have attended several presentations and meetings with Feisal. He is an excellent speaker and always full of energy, drive & enthusiasm and to be honest he has these qualities in abundance! On a personal note, despite the huge volume and size of projects that he takes on, he always makes time for people, is inclusive and this to me is his best quality.
I'm very much looking forward to the future and my involvement with Feisal and the winning strategies and teams that he assembles."

He engages his audience with a clear, concise picture to grow a path for a business to travel and achieve outcomes beyond all our expectations.
On a personal level, he builds trust and confidence and I certainly would recommend him for any person that requires leadership and forward-thinking to achieve and deliver on big projects."

At a time when our profession faces so many challenges, it was truly amazing to see a man with so much innovation, enthusiasm and drive to take this forward and make it work.
