Our team

Alex Hewlett

Alex's speciality is making financial issues understandable, and providing participants with the tools and knowledge to improve the financial performance of their own businesses.

Almost all his work has been with non financial managers within business, who need an understanding of how profit, cashflow and budgeting work, and how they can help improve them.

He trained as an accountant with Neville Russell in Oxford, before moving to the business services group in Grant Thornton's Reading office. In both these jobs he came to understand the issues and problems facing owner managed businesses.

    On the Penine Way
He then moved to Grant Thornton's national training centre, outside High Wycombe, working first with graduate trainees, then becoming the firm's insolvency training manager.

In 1993 he established Attainment Training, where he has specialised in providing financial training to non financial staff.

Outside of work he enjoys walking, good food, steam railways, and vegetable gardening.

The backroom team

Emily and Cuthbert (both boys - it's a long story) have been valuable members of the team for most of their lives. They contribute in many varied, valuable, yet unspecified ways to the success of your training.

They are always ready to give you their full attention!

Outside of work they enjoy sleeping, pest control and bird watching.

    Yes, we're listening.  Ooh, look over there Emily!

The new boy

Cuthbert seems to have gone off on sabbatical - we know not where.

So now Arthur has joined the team.  The are "issues" within the team, not everything is running quite as smoothly as it could.  And it's sometimes hard getting to the computer...

   I'm here to help...
