Employee Spotlight

Employee Spotlight – Kimberly Preece

What does a typical day for Kim look like? 

A typical day for me begins with prioritising my emails/workload depending on our deadlines. On a day-to-day basis I will do a mixture of bookkeeping, accounts preparation, assisting with the VAT returns and generally assisting and helping the team where needed. No day is the same!

What do you get up to in your spare time? 

At the moment, not much due to the current circumstances unfortunately. At the beginning of the first lockdown, I self-taught myself how to crochet to keep me sane and I do enjoy it a lot! I enjoy cooking, going out for long walks and spending time with the family.

Have you got any New Year resolutions? 

To be honest I haven’t set any for this year, but my aim is to continue to look after myself and become healthier!

When you were younger what did you want to be? 

I never really knew what I wanted to be when I grew up, but I remember from a young age I used to enjoy manually typing out my dad’s invoices onto sage so I guess that has influenced me to become where I am today!

What are you most looking forward to in 2022? 

2022 is the year that I get married (2 years later)! I am looking forward to what 2022 brings, not only to me but also to Essendon. Let’s hope 2022 is the year for us all!

From the Business Godparent


Welcome to the 13th edition of the BGP and Happy New Year! As my New Year message I am going to pinch the slogan from the Financial Times (“FT”) campaign “Let’s not go back to a past that wasn’t working anyway!” I am going to use it in a slightly different context to the economics talked about by the FT, and encourage business owners to be brave and adapt.
