What they say

ServiceIQ and BDO’s Colour Accounting workshops have received 100 per cent approval with Kiwis.

“I have clearer understanding of accounting concepts, increased ability to read financial data and the confidence to interpret that data in order to inform our decisions.

The use of colour to indicate and separate data is inspired and I use this same concept in my own reporting today!”

Hamish Drury – Lubricants Business Manager, Z Energy Limited, Auckland

“Four of my colleagues from our management team also attended and we all benefited from the course. We thought it was well presented and there was nothing scary about the concepts. I would definitely recommend it for people in management roles.”

John Etheridge, Operations Manager, The George Hotel, Christchurch
