Here's a scary stat...


Over a 10 year trajectory, 60-70% of all small businesses fail.


Lack of cash, lack of planning, and lack of skills & experience are the key points of failure.

But it’s not all doom and gloom - because you, their advisor, are perfectly placed to help them with all of these things…

You’re just not sure how.

Maybe you’ve had clients coming to you asking if they’re able to hire another team member, pay off that debt, or invest in expanding their business, and you weren’t sure how to help or passed it off to somebody else?

Maybe you already know that cash flow forecasting is what your clients need, but the spreadsheets you spend hours building and maintaining just don’t seem to resonate with them?

Or maybe you’ve not had these conversations with clients, yet. But, you can see their struggles or have noticed missed opportunities. Heck, maybe you’ve made some suggestions to improve, but they dismiss you because they can't see how it would make a difference?

This is why Cash Flow Advisory Services can be so valuable.

It’s not only your way to prove the stats wrong and help your small business clients to succeed, but an opportunity to move into a role that renders you indispensable to your clients.

Just to be clear, there’s nothing wrong with not offering these services, at all.

There’s no risk of being “left behind” or any of the other fearmongering that you might hear in the industry.

It’s completely your choice.

But every choice presents an opportunity, should you choose it.

An opportunity to do something more.

An opportunity to escape downward pressure on fees and commoditization of services, and break the business cycle you’re currently trapped in where you keep having to work harder and harder to grow the business and find the work-life balance you want to achieve.

An opportunity to provide something that’s high-value, high-fee, and high-impact…

That's why we created the Cash Flow Advisory Accelerator

To help you create a high-fee, high-value service that will help you shape the future of your clients’ businesses whilst escaping the compliance grind. We provide you with the training, skills, tools, and an immersive environment that helps you to succeed.

What is it?

It's a monthly coaching & training programme consisting of training, resources, coaching and community designed to help you do one thing: implement a successfull cash flow advisory service. 

Why does it exist?

To give you a clear roadmap to follow to move from foundational compliance services to fully outsourced financial controller services - like cash flow advisory! It’s the same roadmap I followed in my own firm Twenty Eighty, but more on that below…

Who is it for?

For accountants, tax preparers, business advisors and bookkeepers that want to make a bigger impact in your clients’ businesses. It’s for cash flow newbies and seasoned forecasters alike. It can even work for in-house CFOs, controllers and accountants that want to get better at doing that they do.

Where does it happen?

It's an online programme that can be accessed any time, any place, any device. All you need is an internet connection. You can choose to access it in the office, or at home, or on the road. The training can be accessed on-demand but the accountability and coaching calls take place live.

When does it start?

It runs all year round and has an ongoing enrollment via application only. We limit spaces each month to ensure that all of our enrolled members get the right amount of support that they need. You can find out how to apply further down this page. But first, let me introduce myself properly…

Hi, I’m Kelvin Gieck, CFA 👋

After holding several CFO level positions with small, private oil, gas, and energy-related entities, I set up Twenty Eighty, a top cloud accounting firm in Western Canada, specialising in part-time controller and fractional CFO services.

After months of wasting hours pulling together manual spreadsheets, I realised there was a gap in the market for a quick and simple short-term cash flow forecasting tool that allowed me to help my clients to make those all-important business decisions - and so Helm was born.

This accelerator programme was designed to give you the knowledge, skills, and support that you need to be able to take Helm and build, scale, and deliver a high-fee, high-value cash flow advisory service that makes you indispensable to your clients. It’s the exact playbook I’ve been using in my own firm and I’m sharing it with you here.
