Client Story – Jeremy Nichols, Composure Group

When asked to describe his life using a film title, Jeremy Nichols, Founder and Managing Director of the Composure Group, answered “Life is Beautiful” and it’s not hard to see why. Jeremy has qualifications in Health Management and a MBA, he played for Melbourne FC during University and has been on the Board of the Club for 4 years. He founded Composure in 2013 after 20 years in the consulting industry. The group has a deep knowledge of human behaviour in an organisational context. They bring passion, energy and intelligence to helping organisations to play at their best, with a vision  based on Strategy, Culture and Leadership. When dealing with clients Jeremy sees culture as the elephant in the room “We all know it’s there but we’re not willing to confront it, we are not willing to talk about it, we are not willing to actually deal with because it’s often confronting”. He recently spoke with some of our younger staff members at Moore Stephens Vic.

Financial model reviews reveal interesting insights

My previous article about the Moore Stephens Victoria Corporate Finance team was on work we had been doing during winter on Initial Public Offerings (IPO), reverse takeovers (RTO) and an expert witness report.  Some of that work carried over into Spring with a successful outcome for a number of those clients. 

In this article I am writing about some of the interesting work we have been doing with financial forecast modelling – primarily for financiers.  I also find this somewhat encouraging that a number of our clients are out there getting finance for expansion and new businesses.
