About the author: Quentin McCullough
I began my accounting career as an articled clerk in a small firm of Chartered Accountants based in Johannesburg, South Africa. This provided me with a solid foundation for learning a set of business values which guided me throughout my life. This firm was successfully founded on the basis of a verbal agreement. The partners set and demanded very high standards of work, and they led from the front. They made it clear to all their young articled clerks that they could not afford to make mistakes and had a duty to protect the firm’s reputation. Amongst other things, this meant that the staff had to be honest, especially when it came to their most hated duty, which was filling out time sheets. Integrity within the firm was non-negotiable.
I left the auditing profession and moved into commerce. I chose to work for the corporations which I believed shared my acquired value-set, and I chose well. I believe that I added value to the corporations I worked for, but more importantly, I knew that they added value to my career. Along the way, I acquired knowledge and experience, and I eventually decided that it was time for me to change direction again and do things for myself. I decided to start my own business and that is where I started learning all over again. I wanted to advise young entrepreneurs on how to successfully start and manage their own businesses whilst in the process of starting my own business.
About the book: Getting to value: Creating your asset of value
Taking your business from concept to an asset of value

He breaks the business journey into seven steps, based on his own experience of over 30-years as a professional manager and that of the many businesses he has encountered during this time and illustrates the importance of systematic planning. He then skillfully guides you through that phase and provides the fundamental steps and tools you need to succeed at every level.
