The Complete Advisers' Guide to Innovating Your Firms Business Model

"The best way to predict the future is to create it"

Peter Drucker

Sick of trying to grow your advice firms and engage clients, yet find time in the day simply to keep the business on an even keel? It's not getting any easier to run an advice business.

It's time to change the game.

Finnovation is a manual for ambitious advice business owners who want to do things differently. Leveraging leading practice management insight, and combining it with the cutting edge startup methodology used by Silicon Valley to launch multi-million dollar companies on a shoestring, Finnovation lifts the lid on how to set up innovation opportunities that will enable your firm to grow without the constraints that continue to hold back traditional advisory models.

It’s time for SME advice businesses to leverage the methodologies and technologies of Silicon Valley to lead the next wave of financial innovation.

If you're a financial adviser, accountant, risk specialist or financial service professional who is serious about creating the kind of innovative businesses that will have people outside our industry saying "Wow, you won't believe what advice firms are doing these days", this is the book for you.
