About us

 

 

Based in the Tees Valley and Newcastle, Evolution, which is part of the Baldwins Accountancy Group, is the entrepreneur’s first choice for expert advice and game-changing business dexterity. We are a fresh and dynamic hybrid consultancy that is anchored in the delivery of flawless financial compliance, smart business acumen and an optimistic, entrepreneurial spirit that creates the desired rocket fuel for success for everyone who walks through our doors.

 

Through our extraordinarily broad network we are able to deliver a national and an international perspective whist remaining focused on our regional clients. We go out of our way to attract a killer team of brilliant, worldly, entrepreneurial individuals each with a broad commercial perspective who make it their business to understand your business inside out and to deliver the intelligent solutions that are designed to empower you to deliver your ambition for your business.

 

Our aim is to become your trusted business partner; the smart and objective adviser that encourages you to think ‘what if’ and ‘why not’ by arming you with the intelligence you need to think big and to make informed decisions.

 

Like the majority of our clients, we too are entrepreneurs with a big plan so we get what it feels like to be at the helm of a business whether you are a sole trader or leading a multi-million pound enterprise.

 

You want success and so do we. It’s that simple. We’ll get there quicker by working together.

 

Evolution is in the enviable position of being able to provide you with exactly what you need, when you need it – whether that is a one-to-one chat about your bottom line, acting as a savvy and informed adviser in the Boardroom, delivering world class brand consultancy or providing a hub of experts to whom you can outsource your accountancy requirements.

 


What we do really, really well

 

We’re in the business of strong working relationships. We question, we listen, we question some more, and then we’ll work in close partnership with you to make the complex stuff of delivering a successful business easy to understand and action.

 

And that process never stops because we won’t walk away when any given task is done. We will sit down with you again (and again) to measure your successes against our collective performance and scope out the next phase of work.

 

For that reason, we won’t offer you a ‘shopping list’ of services for you to choose from – as the great, late Steve Jobs said, “A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them”. We agree. Neither you nor we truly know what you need until we understand where you’re headed and have agreed on how you’re going to get there. And anyhow, where’s the fun in providing you with a ‘one size fits all’ kind of service – you’re looking for something much more dynamic than that, right?

 

Only when we fully understand the ramifications of challenges that you face and the outcomes that you are looking for, will we design a bespoke and integrated programme of work that is tailored to get the job done. That work will be delivered by a hand-picked team of experts who are not only empowered to deliver the skills and experience you need but who are also chosen to reflect the character of your business, from charismatic challengers to diligent deliverers.

 

Our aim is to help you grow your business by providing you with a bird’s eye view that is anchored in the detail allowing you to confidently focus on releasing your entrepreneurial brilliance and enjoying your life more.

 

We call that a ‘no brainer’.

 


On the money

 

Please don’t ask us to compare our prices with those of other business consultants, we’re not an ‘apples for apples’ kind of business.

 

We’ve worked hard – really hard – to create a hybrid consultancy that is anchored in the delivery of flawless financial compliance, smart business acumen and an optimistic, entrepreneurial spirit that creates the desired rocket fuel for success for everyone who walks through our doors.

 

There is no-one else like us so we can’t offer the same pricing structures.

 

We will deliver added value
We will help you uncover new opportunities and revenue streams
We will enable you to make informed business decisions
We will give you permission to act on those decisions
We will help you to maximise the potential in your brand
We will connect you to the experts, businesses and people who can raise the bar for you

 

It’s an audacious statement, but we honestly believe that hiring Evolution may just turn out to be the most cost effective decision you ever make.
