In this series we’re spotlighting a different MWM team member each month, so you can get to know the team a little better.
Say hello to Hayden Ring, Accountant
“I’m impressed by the openness of the MWM Advisory team and excited by the possibility to do rewarding work with great clients and help solve their business problems.”
Tell us a bit about your role…
My Role at MWM Advisory is to help with the compliance side of accounting by preparing financial statements and tax returns, the bread and butter of the industry. This work leads to the advisory side of my role, offering advice and opportunities to help clients grow and maintain their business.
Are accountants misunderstood?
Yes. I believe accountants are very underutilised.
We have a lot of skills and knowledge that can help business owners over and above compliance. We have a lot of bespoke experience with businesses that enable us to help clients in situations they often probably would not generally reach out to us for help with.
What is the most challenging aspect of your job?
Getting clients to understand what accountants do and why we do things. There is always method to our madness, and we are always looking at all the options available. Then we try to help clients select the best method for their specific situation now or in the future.
What inspires you outside of the office?
Happiness. My goal in life is to be happy.
This inspires me every day in that I try to create and maintain healthy relationships in my life and motivates me to create rewarding and enjoyable experiences – whether that be work or my personal life.
What do you enjoy the most about working at MWM?
The people. The team at MWM are a great collection of individuals all of whom are very friendly, interesting and motivated to do great business.
If you could travel to one place in the world, where would it be and why?
Santorini, Greece. The food, the people, the weather, and the beaches!
The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is …..
Be kind to yourself.
