John Chisholm Consulting – John ChisholmThe old time and leverage based business model is broken and we can only keep repairing it so many times. Client’s don’t like it, professionals despise it, it creates cash flow problems, stifles innovation and cap’s your profit. Inspired some years ago by Ron Baker & the late Paul O’Byrne, John Chisholm Consulting is dedicated to helping professional firms and their clients move away from billing time and refocus on selling what their customers really buy – our knowledge and our intellectual capital.
Mta OptimaChartered Accountants – Matthew TolHaving been timeless for over six years we have experienced incredible change in our business. The positive impact we have seen in staff, customers and cash flow has exceeded all expectations. It has created a level of freedom for our business that means we keep challenging ourselves to be more effective in everything we do whilst ensuring the quality of our output and thus customer results is of the highest possible standard.
Marque Lawyers – Michael Bradley Marque launched in 2008 with big ambitions and no timesheets.  We hadn’t heard of Ron Baker then, we just knew that time costing is stupid.  Then we met Ron and now we know we’re on the right wave of change.  Life outside the timesheet is bliss, you can take it from us.
Integrity Wealth – Michael Stewart In 2007, Integrity decided to replace timesheets & the partnership model. Without timesheets team members thrive, new team members flock to our door and services are far easier to cross-sell.  Without a traditional partnership model resources are better allocated, roles clearly defined and significantly fewer issues at Partner level, allowing the firm to move forward at a rapid pace.
McCullough Robertson Lawyers – Matthew BurgessHaving been inspired initially by the philosophy set out in ‘Firm of the Future’ a number of lawyers at McCullough Robertson embarked on the journey from an entire practice based on time billing towards ‘pricing on purpose’.While the abandonment of time sheets remains a work in progress, for those that have embraced value pricing the impact on every aspect of their professional life has been immense and hopefully serves as an inspiration not only for the firm as a whole but also other lawyers.
