At TBL Accountants, we believe in the bigger picture, and we are passionate about taking businesses to where they need to be. With more than 50 years’ experience behind us, we know a thing or two about financing.
Each member of our team plays a crucial part in offering the best possible service for our clients. The strength of our team is its members, and the strength of our members is our team.
It’s always nice to put a face to a name! Here we meet Colby Fletcher, Bookkeeper at TBL Accountants.
What do you do at TBL Accountants?
When did you join TBL Accountants?
Where did you work before TBL Accountants?
My first job was in retail whilst I was studying accounting, theatre and psychology at Seevic/USP. I then worked at DeVines accountants in Southend for just over a year after college before moving to TBL Accountants.
What is your one top financial tip for local businesses?
If you are a retail space, make the shop as customer friendly as possible, if the customer is comfortable, they are more likely to buy and return in the future.
Are you based in TBL’s Southend or Billericay offices or both?
I am based in the Billericay office.
What is your favourite thing about Billericay?
The restaurants on the high street are brilliant. My new favourites are Giggling Squid and the Breakfast Rooms.
What is on your bucket list?
To drive around America or Europe in a campervan with friends.
What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
When my friend was teaching me guitar over 10 years ago he said that if you mess up when performing, just carry on as no one will know. Basically saying that it is ok to fail at something as long as you don’t get kept down by it. Still don’t know how to play the guitar though!
