Helen Laidlaw CA,BMS (Director)

I can’t wait to get to know you better! To get the conversation started here is a little bit more about me:

Helen's passions
I love seeing business owners find their feet and succeed in all aspects of their work! Starting and running a business is hard; a lot of businesses don’t make it past the first three to five years! I believe that having a plan and being held accountable, can set you up to beat the statistics and (more importantly) have a better quality of life!
Work things about Helen from Togetherness Co.
I studied accounting and business at The University of Waikato, graduating in 1993 with a Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS). In 1996, I was admitted to the Chartered Accountants of Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) as a CA member. For the past 20+ years, I have worked as a CFO (Chief Financial Officer) within SME’s and public sector environments in multiple countries including New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom.
Life things with Helen

Having moved around quite a bit in my early years ( from England to Fiji and finally New Zealand ) - I put down roots in the Mighty Waikato many years ago. I live here with my close family and wonderful husband, Mike, and daughter, Gemma. When I’m not helping businesses improve, I love traveling to new places, seeing new things and experiencing different cultures. At home I enjoy spending time with friends and family, the odd adventure race, walking, reading and a nice glass of prosecco on a summer evening.
