Testimonials

Thank you for delivering three excellent session at the Financial Controller’s Conference – and for helping to maintain the energy levels of the audience over the course of the day. From the feedback I have had so far, the audience really enjoyed your slots.
Simon Alsop, Head of Business, ICAEW, ICAEW
We asked David Parmenter to deliver a key note address on KPIs at our KPI conference held in Estonia. The conference was a great success and attendees were very happy with his remarkable professionalism. I have hosted hundreds of speakers and I have very seldom seen such an attention to detail. Delegates received very useful templates to move them forward.
Toomas Tamsar, Employers Association, Estonia
After attending your workshop you will be pleased to know that I (with the assistance of my team) have managed to complete June end of month for all 6 entities and handed them to my CFO (so he can prepare what he needs to do) by day 3 and a half. So I just wanted to say a big thanks! The impossible now seems possible.”

“Previously we were (if we were lucky) managing to finalise end of month by the 15th of the month (i.e. day 11 – give or take) so you can imagine our reaction when we were advised that management reports needed to be submitted to the UK by day 5. Not possible…or so we thought.

After attending your workshop you will be pleased to know that I (with the assistance of my team) have managed to complete June end of month for all 6 entities and handed them to my CFO (so he can prepare what he needs to do) by day 3 and a half. So I just wanted to say a big thanks! The impossible now seems possible.”

Mr. David Parmenter held a keynote speech and an in-depth session at our two main events of 2013. He is a very inspiring speaker with some interesting topics on his agenda. He delivers his messages in a very controversial and humoristic way and uses anecdotes from his own life to stress his opinions. He was very popular among our attendants and his keynote and session rated as number one among all speakers. We recommend him warmly as a speaker!
Maj Nedergaard, Research & Campaign Manager, Targit
We have successfully moved to a three day reporting regime which has resulted in positive comments being received from the senior management team. This would not have been achievable without the assistance from David. Our team enjoyed the workshop that David facilitated to discuss and review our existing processes. It provided the team with an opportunity to look at the end of month process in its entirety and, with some guidance from David, we were able to eliminate some steps and improve alignment with others. The result, a full CFO report, ready by COB day three. An awesome result.
Lloyd Petty, Acting Chief Financial Officer, Civil Aviation Safety Authority, Canberra
A big “Thank you” for the Lean accounting course you presented this week. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and cannot wait to become leaner and more efficient. I will definitely be on the lookout for any other training you might be giving again in Sydney.
