Our Open Day was a huge success!

Our Open Day on 3 August 2023 was heralded as THE business event in Hereford, and what an electric morning it was!

We had 65 people in attendance for our Open Day and website launch, including lovely clients, local business owners, and pillars of our local Herefordshire business community.

Introducing our new brand and website

We were so proud not only to welcome everyone to our offices (we’ve only been in Broad Street, Hereford for 3 years, so it was certainly time to welcome you in!), but also to launch our new website and rebrand.

It’s a fairly subtle rebrand, we are now Kinder Accountants, not Kinder Pocock, but keeping the Kinder name, and developing our new website are a huge step forward. We’re ready to take on the world!

Find out more about our new name, and why it’s so important here.

Brad Burton changes your life in 25 minutes

Brad Burton raised the energy to the roof with his opening keynote. He’s not only the UK’s #1 motivational business speaker, but also my friend and mentor. He promised to change everyone’s life in 25 minutes, and he certainly achieved it! He had the room buzzing, laughing and so energized! You can catch him keynoting at Herefordshire Means Business Conference on 22 November 2023.

What an amazing event Sharon Baker FCCA 💜 You and your team are amazing and there was so much support for you in the room. Brad Burton changed the way we think in 25 minutes

There was a huge buzz in the room for the whole event, with so many good conversations going on. Networking is not about selling, it’s about building relationships, and we certainly enabled that to happen!

Q & A with Brad and Sharon

Brad and Sharon Q & AWe then had a lively Q & A with Brad and myself, and we were asked lots of questions – including what would you tell your younger self! We were both very honest and open in our answers. If you weren’t there you missed out!

Great to hear the super motivating Brad Burton. Bit of a nutter. But the best sort, the sort the world and businesses need!! Fantastic day thank you Sharon Baker FCCA 💜 and your wonderful team.
