Midlands Enterprise Awards 2019

13 | SME NEWS - Midlands Enterprise Awards 2019 Drawing on the personal experiences and knowledge of its Creator, ATB Accounting Training for Business provides award-winning, certified accountancy training solutions to a variety of businesses and individuals. We invited Founder Sandra Quinn-Smith to tell us more about her firm and how far it has come. In the current career development space, the flexibility, one-to-one support and financial benefits of distance learning make it an increasingly compelling option for SMEs. As a result of this growth and increased focus on career enhancement, firm’s such as ATB are able to provide vital services that will drive companies and their team members towards even greater success, offering qualifications in accounting and payroll, that can be integrated around their current professional lives. In her opening comments Sandra outlines her company and how it works with clients to provide them with the bespoke training solutions that will meet their unique requirements. “Personally, I am the founder and owner of ATB. We provide industry standard training and qualifications for computerised and manual bookkeeping, accounting and payroll. This is achieved by running bespoke courses and providing business support to suit the needs of individuals and organisations.” “With over 20 years teaching and training experience, all levels of learner can be catered for by myself and my expert team. Whether on a one-to-one basis, within small group sessions, or bespoke training to meet businesses or individuals’ requirements. While some skills are very specific and relevant to certain businesses and sectors, there are others that are crucial to the general makeup of business life. Indeed, there are skills that employees need to be competent in to ensure the continuity and running of a business. ATB offers a wide range of courses that focus on developing and enhancing skills that are essential to the accounting and payroll function of a business.” Discussing how she came to create the company, Sandra shares how she designed a business that would meet previously overlooked needs for a variety of SMEs. “Having worked as a Further Education lecturer for 17 years, I became disillusioned with the mainstream provision being offered. It seemed to be that more targeted and fit-for-purpose training and qualifications were needed for SMEs and so I created ATB to provide bespoke solutions that would fit better not only around people’s needs, but their lives too. It struck me that for a lot of people flexible learning was a much better way of gaining vital qualifications than attending college, and as such I set up my business to fulfil that need.” ATB Accounting Training for Business Best SME Accounting Support Company 2019 Since starting her company Sandra has learned many valuable lessons on how best to provide exceptional client service, which she shares with us. “Over the years running ATB, I have come to regard integrity, honesty and determination as key qualities and I strive to embody those myself. I have a commitment to do my absolute best for clients, nothing else really matters. I hope that I am supportive and friendly. In a service industry like mine when I am providing something of value to people who are learning, those are very important qualities.” “When working with any client I focus on exceeding their expectations and providing them with the support they need throughout the process. From the initial enquiry through to the completion of their training, they know that when they work with ATB they are getting only the best.” Looking to the future, Sandra remains focused on exceeding her client’s expectations and driving them to even greater growth and success. “Over the coming years I am eager to grow ATB and support an even wider array of clients from across the corporate market. At the same time, I am eager to ensure that the quality of the service we provide is always exceptional, so that clients receive the quality support and training they need to enhance their business and move forward.” Company: ATB Accounting Training for Business Name: Sandra Quinn-Smith Address: 45, Trinity Vicarage Road, Hinckley, Leicestershire, LE10 0BU Telephone Number: +447903245181 Web Address: www.atbaccountingtraining.co.uk
