The Added Value Network, better known as the AVN association of accountancy firms, celebrated its 10th anniversary this week with a birthday bash attended by 349 practitioners from all over the country. Held at Birmingham’s National Motorcycle Musuem the event also saw AVN launch a new anti-recession service for owner-managed businesses.

AVN held its first ever Masterclass in the autumn of 1998. Chairman Steve Pipe praised the work practitioners had been doing to pro-actively help businesses to grow in the intervening years, but in light of the economic climate, urged a note of caution for the future.

“Doing nothing is not an option,” he said, “and neither is waiting until our clients are desperate. The profession has to be pro-active on this. So we are getting the ball rolling by offering an anti-recession service that involves carrying out a detailed diagnostic review to identify how best to strengthen a client’s cashflow, creating a high impact action plan, and then helping make sure that those plans and good intentions are actually implemented.”

To celebrate AVN’s 10th birthday, and mark the launch of this service, Steve Pipe is offering the first 100 partners to contact him a full day’s free training in how turn the recession from being a threat into an opportunity. Based on AVN research, the training will cover how to design and launch a pro-active recession-busting service for owner-managed businesses, and how to deliver that service profitably. Interested AccountingWeb members should contact Steve directly at [email protected].
