Why you need the right experts

At the Inflection Point you come to realise:

Free workshops are no longer the answer to your problems

There is too much to learn and you are spread too thinly across every aspect

There are areas of the business where you have a natural ability and add massive value – that’s where you want to focus

You need experts you can trust who understand this specific stage of the journey, and know how to help you to get through it


Alasdair McGill

Ashton McGill Accountants

I’m not a man to sit about – both figuratively and literally. In my working life and as a competitive cyclist, I believe in living life to the max – whether it’s mind mapping an idea that’s come to me in the wee small hours or spending over 10 hours a week in the saddle. But my passion for what I do means neither feels like hard work.

I have a brain that’s always busy, and love thinking of creative ways to be disruptive – always asking, “Why does it have to be that way?” – with the ultimate aim of making things better. As a result, my business reflects many of my values and beliefs: it doesn’t conform to industry stereotypes, instead taking a modern approach that breaks boundaries and creates a positive, dynamic and fun environment for clients and staff alike.
