What ProfitPro Members Say
“It’s grand making money but there is a better way to doing this – and I thought Des will be the man to hopefully show me how to do this. I am thinking differently now in how I can position myself with certain clients to do more and it has given me the confidence to go down that avenue.”
Johnny O’Callaghan, John O’Callaghan Ltd
“I have more time for my children. I have more time for my wife. I’m more present. When I’m there, I’m really there. When I’m in the business, I’m fully in the business. I’ve learned skills that I didn’t have before. I learned how to switch off and how to disconnect from the business. My business life and my personal life are no longer muddied.”
Brian Heerey, Heerey & Co
“Working with Des has been a positive, supporting & eye-opening experience. Coming from a natural instinct to always focus on getting the client work done and everything else comes after, we were loosing sight of how the business should be benefiting us as owners. This has encouraged and supported us to decide what we want out of the business and what the business needs to be to deliver this.”
Claire Kelly, Kildare Audit & Accountancy
“ProfitPro puts a focus on what we have to do and where we have to go rather than constantly chasing our tails. It has given us guidance on what to do with our business and where we need to start working on rather than just working on clients”.
Paul Whately, MA Whately & Co
“What was the why?” I think I lost what I was doing this for. You’re doing it for money, and keep the house, and keep the practice going, and all the rest of it. That’s not enough when you get to a certain point. I found my why again.”
Richard Kendrick, K+A Accountants
“Without doubt this course is one of the best I have completed. It has completely changed my approach and thinking to running the practice. No matter what stage your practice is at, the information from this will be of huge benefit to you.”
Shane Donnellan, Donnellan & Co
What is ProfitPro
ProfitPro partners with Accountancy firm owners to build profitable and rewarding businesses. We provide tools, knowledge and support to help Accountants create outstanding businesses for themselves and their customers too.
As an Accountant in practice, you combine your technical expertise and experience to provide outstanding service to your clients. While some of your clients appreciate you and value what you do for them, not all of your clients really understand or care.
You are not just about the numbers though, because as an Accountant and experienced advisor you can transform businesses and make a massive impact.
You know you can provide transformational value to those clients who truly want to build profitable and sustainable businesses. The business owners who listen to you and act upon your advice can grow and prosper. What would it be like if you had more of these ideal customers and less of the non-ideal ones?
Accountants who want to do the work they enjoy that makes the most significant impact. Accountants who want to work with more ideal customers. Accountants who want more from their own business. Accountants who can help their ideal clients get more from their business. Accountants who want more choice and more freedom. Accountants who want to build a business that gives them the time and money that frees them to do the things that are truly important in life.
ProfitPro provides the training, resources and consultancy for Accountants who want more.

Martin Bissett is the founder of the Upward Spiral Partnership (USP), the international consulting firm that specialises in enabling the accounting profession to win higher end clients, create leaders from their ranks and save lives…more on that last part later.
His purpose is to alert the accounting profession to the profound outcomes that their advisory expertise can create in the lives of their clients.
