We are a qualified, independent provider of commercially-minded, cost effective and flexible financial modelling, analysis and business partnering, based in Cumbria, holding over 16 years' commercial finance experience in industry including the nuclear sector. 

We are committed to helping businesses make more robust, informed strategic and operational decisions with better results, greater confidence and lower risk.


Do you trust that your spreadsheet and modelling practices are as accurate, fit for purpose and effective as they could be?  

Spreadsheets are a risky business and, without robust, standardised practices and strict testing of critical models, can result in poor decisions and threaten the success or reputation of a project or business.

We offer a Free Health Check for your critical spreadsheets and models, independent peer reviews, model build and reconstruction, strategic option appraisal and best practice guidance.


Do you need to boost your analytical capacity or capability?  Are you confident that you fully understand what drives your business results?  

Could you benefit from the expertise and insights of a Financial Analyst or Finance Business Partner, but do not have the budget for permanent staff or have fluctuating project-driven requirements? 

We can act as a commercially-minded, cost effective, highly competitive and flexible partner, analyst or sounding board, tailored to your needs and budget.


Do you need commercially minded finance support to your negotiations, contract renewals and reviews?  Would you like to better understand the financial impact of your key contracts? 

We have extensive experience of helping businesses through procurements and tenders to contract negotiation, drafting, implementation, review and renewals.

Find out how we can deliver more robust and valuable contracts that are properly underpinned by sound evaluation, tighter contract terms and risk reduction.


Kirsten provides the essential decision support service for business managers. Her clear, graphic presentation with understandable and readable reports reduce both complexity and risk to allow confident decision making.
— William Roberts, Senior CFO
As a charity with limited resources, developing appropriate models to support our business planning is a challenging task. Kirsten provided us with a level of expertise that we had been unable to access previously. Her wealth of experience in developing sophisticated financial models and monitoring tools enabled us to develop a bespoke financial model linked to our business plan. This sophisticated tool has proved invaluable in managing the charity going forwards and has given us greater confidence in the accuracy and quality of management information and monitoring that we undertake. Kirsten’s support proved second to none and I would thoroughly recommend her.
