About Barry Sharp
As a business consultant in the Vancouver area, I've been helping small businesses and larger ones be more effective and more profitable for over 20 years. I'm a professional accountant, a fellow of the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants - The world's largest international professional accounting organization. I've worked as a small business consultant and as an internal consultant in larger enterprises.
I'm not a "beancounter". I don't believe that cutting costs is the only way to improve profits.
I created a software development company in the 1980s, in the middle of an economic depression and ran it for eight years....designing, producing and marketing accounting systems and packaged software.
I've been a business consultant for small, medium and large business, providing superb customer service and increasing profits.
Developed strategic plans, business plans and forecasts. Successfully presented them to boards, banks and financial institutions to justify funding.
I've written project plans, obtained the funding and provided project management expertise - from software to construction projects.
I have a Certificate in IT Controllership, so I speak the languages of Computer Technology, as well as the language of Business.
