How do I work?

After an initial call, we meet to talk about your business, your challenges, what's working and what needs improving. We discuss how I can help you, all completely free.

Moving forward, there are 3 options:

1.   A review of your numbers, resulting in a summary of the focus areas to improve performance.

2.  As above, plus a workshop to delve deeper and formulate an action plan.

3.  Following the review and workshop above, we work together on a regular basis for 6 - 12 months and implement change. This

     includes monthly management information and review meetings.

Laura Hicks ACA, I founded Jola Strategic Ltd in 2019. I have 25 + years’ experience in accountancy practice

and commercial sectors, including financial services, renewable energy, retail, and construction. Having gained my

expertise through the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. 


I pride myself on bringing structure and calm, enabling business leaders to make confident commercial

decisions within their organisations.


Outside of work, I love travel, adventure, and spend most of my time keeping up with Josh, my football-mad

son, and our lively black Labrador, Milo. I have a passion for wellbeing, always finding time to recharge

through meditation, yoga, netball and running.



Keeping finance simple, using plain language and a practical approach. Taking the ‘scary’ out of numbers and presenting information so you will understand finance!
