Faisal Mohamed
Senior Adviser, Cloud Systems

Since my time at university (now a number of moons ago), my objective was to become a well-rounded business advisor, being able to provide valuable input whatever the client's situation and circumstance presented. Safe to say I have not been let down since graduation. Every day provides a new challenge, rather a new opportunity, to augment these key aptitudes for the benefit of those around. This is what drives me – providing insight into the meaning behind the numbers, to add value to clients' businesses.
Just as important to me is passing on the knowledge learnt and skills developed to those around me. The highlight of my day is seeing "the light bulb turn on" when someone understands something they had previously struggled with! Training staff is my passion in the office, and teaching Arabic is my passion outside.

I joined Adrian's in 2008 and since that time have built great relationships with the team and our clients.
Having obtaining my Chartered Account qualifications with the help and support of the team at Adrians I look forward to tackling and overcoming life’s many challenges we all face.
With the variety and range of industries within today’s society, the different obstacles the SME market faces and the individual goals and aspirations of their owners. My focus as a client manager is to guide and provide professional advice and recommendations that will enable our clients to achieve their goals.
During my downtime I like to recharge with a bit of exercise or a good puzzle, ready to take on the next challenge.

Bookkeepers


Deborah Hopkins
Bookkeeping Client Adviser

I have been involved in the accounting profession for 20 years now. I was excited and honoured to be approached by Angeline in 2013 to become a part of the Bookkeeping team. I have always strived to help clients with their accounts and enjoy the job satisfaction that comes with that, and have enjoyed coming back and working in a team environment once more.

The introduction of Xero provides a whole new element of job satisfaction, of being able to provide clients with up-to-date reports and information on a timely basis, be it weekly, fortnightly or monthly – such up to date information was practically unheard of in the past! And, by assisting accounting staff, I feel that we are part of a team to provide clients with the information and advice they need, when the need it – not 6 months after the event when it could be too late.

The working environment at Adrians gives me the support I need from my colleagues, and the flexibility I need in my personal life. With three children aged 8, 7 and 7, it is great to be able to work with clients and still attend school events. I also enjoy heading out for coffee with friends, and time out with my husband. My daughter and I enjoy visiting the shops and library on the weekend, whereas my boys are happy to run around at the park. And when they are all quiet, it is nice to sit with a book and read.
