Martin Hirst Financial Consultancy
Martin Hirst Financial Consultancy is a firm of Independent Financial Advisers (IFA) based in Leeds West Yorkshire and has been established for over 30 years. We aim to provide advice to both individuals and companies on all aspects of financial planning, through a long term approach of fully understanding our clients’ needs, wants and aspirations and then prioritising objectives.
Being Independent Financial Advisers means that our clients benefit from our ability to offer advice on the broadest range of products and services. Whether you are looking for mortgage advice, investment advice, retirement planning, inheritance tax planning or simply reducing costs, we have many years of experience in finding the most suitable solution for your needs.
Your brand is the platform you build your business on. The foundations. Without a strong, defined and consistent brand message to communicate, your business can miss the opportunity to project your professional approach and build trust and confidence in your audience. We’ve produced a multitude of clear, well defined and highly effective brands through careful analysis, forward facing planning and professional design and have the client testimonials to prove it.

To build a successful business you need solid foundations. As well as a great idea, a sound business plan and the right people on board, you need to be certain that you’re complying with the rules and protecting your interests. A mistake early on could have devastating consequences for your business in the future.
For example, a poorly worded employment contract could mean an ex-employee setting up in direct competition to you. They might even steal your clients. And that could lead to your business becoming less profitable or even failing altogether.
So it’s absolutely key to make sure your legal framework is robust from the start.
We offer all members of the Business Catalyst Club special legal packages and reduced rates for debt recovery, property, employment and dispute resolution.
Whether you’re already in business or just starting out, we’ll make sure you have all the right policies and contracts in place so you know your business is on a sound legal footing. We’ll also check that your website is compliant with the latest rules. Because, no matter how amazing it looks, you can get into trouble if your terms and conditions, data protection and privacy policies aren’t right. If you haven’t started your business yet, we can sort out your company formation for you.
What’s more, we’re property experts so we can advise you on your business premises and acquiring or selling property as your needs change. And looking ahead, we’ll make sure that you’re prepared for the future. If you have a question or an unexpected legal issue, you can talk it through with us and we’ll give you our best advice.
With clear upfront costs and great value packages, all this means that you can stop worrying about the law and focus on what you do best – running your business.
PM Law Limited – by your side when you’re starting out; supporting you as you grow.

When you own or run a business, even the simplest decisions can have profound implications.
Vistage members find that the peer advisory and leadership development training we provide has a profound effect on their growth as a leader. Not surprisingly, our members soon discover that their companies also experience significant growth as a direct result of the executive leadership coaching provided by their Vistage group.
Vistage works because in every group and in every meeting, no topic is off-limits. If you are willing to talk candidly about the tough decisions you face, fellow members will rally around you, listen, ask tough questions and bring to bear every resource they have to help you grow as a leader and improve the workings of your business. When our members have access to new perspectives – whether from fellow business peers, their Vistage Chair, or expert speakers – they expand their view beyond their company walls in a way that traditional executive leadership training just can’t offer.
Members report that our leadership development initiatives help them grow, learn, and find new ways to apply their newfound knowledge to their businesses. Vistage private advisory groups enable business leaders to leverage the wisdom and experience of their peers, the guidance of an expert leadership coach (called a Vistage Chair) and the collective knowledge of the worldwide Vistage community.
With Vistage you recharge your thinking, learn from fellow CEOs, count on trusted & confidential advice and seize opportunities for immediate results.
