Gavin Sequeira interviews Scott Trevethan – Corporate Accountant Turned Author and SME Business Evangelist

Global Rank Top 5% - Break Free From Corporate

Interview With Scott Trevethan

In this podcast, Scott shares how he started off his career as a chartered accountant working for a national engineering group and then went onto work for a large tobacco company where he got a wide range of experience including roles in financial accounting, internal auditing and even marketing management and was able to see the big picture of how business worked. During a recession, he ended up working in the insolvency side of business where he saw first hand the exposure and risk that small businesses faced. It was at this point where Scott started looking at ways in which he could make a difference and add value to the small businesses community that he considered the true ‘heroes’ that didn’t have access to the same resources as a big business. 

Scott went on to start several businesses from ideas he had including a franchise specialising in specialty tortilla wraps! After several learnings, and being forced to go back to the drawing board, Scott’s next job led him to start his own consulting practice, which morphed into a virtual CFO business and then grew to become a successful public practice. But it didn’t stop there. He was hungry to do more and grew his team offshore, launching Financial Fanatics, specialising in general accounting, leasing and bookkeeping. Today, Scott trains and empowers teams to learn the accounting skills to help more businesses out there and he is really making a difference within the small business community. Scott is an author, a keen sailor and is involved in supporting kids orphanages in Thailand through his charity work. You can reach out to Scott on Linkedin or through his website
