Meet Mahmood Reza, arts and culture accountant, financial educator, author and podcast host.
"I hate numbers." Wait ... what?
Mahmood Reza is a highly-qualified and experienced accountant working with arts and culture professionals, arts organisations and not for profit social enterprises to provide them with visibility, clarity, and direction in their financial affairs without resorting to confusing jargon.
A former teacher, now living in Leicester in England, Mahmood has created I Hate Numbers as the antidote to conventional accountancy firms.
His creative yet straight-forward approach to the business of numbers and finance makes him the ideal choice for those working in the creative industries.
Mahmood's podcast is here.
My interviews with him were peppered with both laughter and insightful gems of advice from an expert in the field.
