Leanne Berry – FICB

Director, Chief Number Lover

Anyone who labels Leanne Berry ‘just a bookkeeper’ deserves an award for understatement of the year.With over twenty years of experience in helping others achieve their business goals, Leanne has carved a niche that’s lined with diverse qualifications, achievements, awards and experience.

Based in Bathurst, NSW, Leanne is one of the Directors of Love Your Numbers Pty Ltd which, despite its jovial sounding name, is a highly effective consultancy that offers turnkey solutions for clients.

A self-confessed ‘geek girl’, Leanne is driven both by numbers and technology, and how the two elements can work together for the good of a client’s business. She thrives on problem-solving and encourages and assists clients to derive more from their accounting and other software.

Leanne’s impressive list of credentials reads like an encyclopaedia of qualifications so for the sake of brevity, only the most recent are listed here. For starters, she has been a Certified MYOB Consultant for over 9 years years and a member of a MYOB Partner Advisory Group for the past seven. She has 25 years experience teaching small business management, frontline management and MYOB and spent 10 years working with the Business Enterprise Centre (BEC) Network of New South Wales in Lithgow and Bathurst.

Leanne has held Board positions with many regional not-for-profits and was Finance Manager for six years for a large Lithgow NFP with a staff of 60 and turnover of more than $5 million per year.

Leanne spent four years as President of the Lithgow Chamber of Commerce and Industry and has developed numerous community events, most notably the Lithgow Business Awards.

Leanne has achieved community recognition for her efforts. She has been nominated for Home Based Business awards in Lithgow and received the Business Enterprise Centres of NSW Association Award for Excellence for her contribution to the network through Information Technology in 2000/01.

National recognition has come in the form of a nomination for the Telstra Business Women’s Awards 2010, 2011 & 2014 for her service to the bookkeeping industry.

Truly a small business specialist, Leanne revels in opportunities to share her expertise and knowledge with others. She is a respected public speaker and is often called upon to be ‘the voice’ of the bookkeeping industry and impart her considered wisdom to audiences.

Beyond bookkeeping, Leanne Berry is an expert business mentor, trainer and facilitator. Leanne has mentored many bookkeepers around Australia to nurture and grow their practices.
