And the #INABAaward goes to: A singing accountant

I announce the (virtual) award of INABAs to accountants who operate in such a way as to confirm my contention that ‘Boring Is Optional'.

INABA stands for 'I'm Not A Boring Accountant' - more on the awards here++++ 

Louise Herrington combines an unusual range of skills including that of being Professional Singer, Bookkeeper, Chartered Accountant specialising in systems and processes and a Videographer. Her practice name is 'Performance Accountancy' and she specialises in providing bookkeeping and accounting services to self-employed musicians and singers.

I first came across Louise when I was directed to her promotional video which I featured on this blog last week: Now that's what I call a singing accountant!

Louise tells me:
When people talk about me in a referral basis, I seem to get referred to as an accountant with a fun personality and who is not worried about clambering through trade vans trying to find receipts, clearing clients' filing that had not be done for a few years, and really enjoying the work with them. 
The fact that I am also a professional opera singer means I can relate to the more creative clients. 
No I don’t start singing Wagner at my clients premises – unless they ask me of course.
If you are or know an accountant you want to nominate for an INABA, please check the (very simple) criteria here and then let me know via my website: 
If I agree I will then ask them to send me a few words setting out their perspective on how they evidence that they're not boring on a day to day basis, and how this is evident to their clients.
