About Jamie O Hanlon 


I recall being an eighteen year old returning to Ireland having spent two months in Spain, attempting to mind children for the summer. I was awaiting exam results and the prospect of a career choice in the coming weeks. I saw an advert for a business college offering professional accountancy courses and thought that in order to be a BIG SHOT business man in the future I would need a good understanding of business financials. Little did I realise that twenty seven years later that the business I would establish would be a professional services firm offering business and financial support to the SME business sector.


I have to say that I enjoy, hugely, my role as an adviser to business owners and managers. My position with the firms’ clients allows me to be able to support them on an on-going basis – I truly feel that I am a PARTNER in their business and love to hear from them when my help is needed. One of the attributes that has stood to me over the years is my desire to grow my own business, to explore all areas essential to running my business – as a business owner with extensive knowledge and experience of running my own business I know that I am well able to help others in running and growing their business.


The primary reason for business owners and manager setting up in business is to provide for ourselves and our families and to ensure that we can live a financially comfortable and rewarding life, now and in the future. In addition I like many others want to grow a business that I can be proud of, leaving behind a legacy, big or small. The personal reward that I get from seeing other business owners & managers succeed is second to none, other than my gorgeous kids (in whom I am soooo proud). I want to help and I hope you give me the opportunity.

Yes Avid Partners have two divisions of the company. We have an accountancy division that handles your day to day financial necessities and we also have an advisory division to assist companies develop their businesses. This can include consultancy, marketing and guidance when required. We can act as a Chairperson for your organisation if required and can also take away some of the day to day pressures that can restrict growth and slow development. Avid Partners can help with both of the critical aspects of a company, keeping costs down as much as possible and growing revenues exponentially. Technology companies need patience in developing their visions and an involved day to day partner is the best way of keeping a good business balance.
It is a common problem for companies who are in a situation where their business is growing in real terms (users, visitors) but sales is not matching the other growth metrics as traditionally sales lags behind growth (Twitter, Linked In, etc). So what do you do? Every business needs access to finance to pay operating costs which gives the company time to develop future revenue streams. Thankfully the situation is getting better with many tech friendly finance options coming on stream such as micro financing, crowd funding and government agencies are also starting to show support interests.
Every company starts out small with very limited resources at the beginning of the project. The key is to make the most from the resources you have and to seek out alliances, support systems and working partners. Start ups face many challenges including access to capital, regulatory requirements, economies of scale. We can help you develop your concept and will assist in every way possible from accountancy and day to day support to advisory services and raising finance. We can assist in a number of ways and have a portfolio of growing small companies that we help on an on-going basis.
