I started my Auditel business with training in October 2022 and already by the end of the year I had secured my first client, with two more proposals out for imminent decisions and have another twelve prospective client meetings in the diary over January and February. I’m very excited to have joined Auditel at a time when cost and carbon reduction is so high on the agenda for UK businesses. The training and support I have received since starting has been superb and I’m looking forward to growing my business over the years ahead and enjoying the wide-ranging benefits that an Auditel business offers.” - Julie Adams, Auditel Franchise Partner

Auditel’s High Quality Carbon Solutions

Auditel support clients in navigating their path to Carbon Neutrality, but a double-benefit is that it can be funded through the cost savings in procurement from within the business that Auditel also achieve.

By combining the expertise of Auditel’s own Carbon Strategy Group and partnering with British Standards Institute (BSI) they are assisting clients towards the only internationally recognised standard, PAS2060. “Specification for the demonstration of carbon neutrality”, positioned to clients as a simplified 4-step process.

Auditel franchise partners can generate revenue through a mix of monthly retainer fees and fixed fee projects and then also develop a range of additional income streams that will be developed alongside. Carbon is also great for cash flow as you’ll start billing at the outset of the client engagement.

“I started approaching clients by leading with carbon solutions in October 2001. By February 2022 I had already secured seven new clients all paying me monthly retainers totalling nearly £100k per year, and I had more clients sign throughout the year. By the end of 2022, I had more clients than I could manage by myself, so I ‘joint venture’ the project work with my Auditel colleagues. Carbon acts as the ‘door opener’ from which procurement and cost management projects then come on top. The financial rewards are enormous, in January 2023 I’ve billed over £25k alone, but I feel great about the impact of the work that I do, especially the positive environmental impact – I’m passionate and proud about helping businesses manage and reduce carbon emissions.“ - Sean Connaughton, Auditel Partner

Powerful Procurement Solutions

Auditel Profile Image

Auditel Partners boost cash-flow within their client’s business by saving money through better procurement, process improvement or identifying how technology can play a greater part in their business.

Auditel deliver ‘best value’, saving client’s money, increasing profit, and making a tangible difference. The savings made can also fund complimentary projects such as carbon management solutions including investing in renewable energy solutions, purchasing carbon offsets or becoming verified carbon neutral by trusted partners such as BSI and NQA. Procurement and carbon go ‘hand in hand’ and Auditel are very unique in offering both service offerings that are both in such high demand at the moment.

Auditel can achieve for their clients’ incredible results that any business just can’t achieve by themselves – through cost category expertise, supplier and pricing knowledge, and collated buying power. This creates long-term income streams with flexible fee-earning methods including share of savings, retainer, fixed fee and day rate options.

An Auditel Business Can Be Ideal For People From Diverse Backgrounds

Auditel Profile Image

Auditel is a collaborative network of around 100 franchised partners who have come from varied backgrounds but usually at senior-management or director level. By playing to their strengths, Partners can work together to deliver procurement, supply chain management and carbon solutions to organisations of wide-ranging industry sectors and sizes.

Auditel can suit people from all industry sectors and areas of expertise. You do not need to be an accountant or a procurement specialist! Auditel offers a broad array of ‘pathways’ to suit your skills, experience and business objectives. This means that if you enjoy client management and business development you can focus your business on these areas and utilise the expertise of other Auditel Partners who can deliver the project management aspects.

Equally, if you have experience and knowledge in certain areas, for example, Logistics, Packaging or Waste Management, you can develop this expertise with Auditel and over time, undertake projects for other affiliates alongside your own client activities.

You can play to your strengths in Auditel, though every Partner is thoroughly trained and supported ongoing in all aspects of the business.

"I’ve got a stable, profitable business with a great team behind me, and financially I am in a better position than I would be if I was still in full time employment. I was fortunate and very grateful to be able to build our dream home for my family and I last year. I wouldn’t have been able to start my property journey without the income from Auditel and I wouldn’t have been able to build the house if I didn’t have the time – so the flexibility of the business has played a pivotal role." - David Kendall – Auditel Practice

Flurry Of Activity As Three New Partners Join Auditel’s Winter Training Programme

Despite the freezing temperatures, ice and snow at the start to the year, Auditel’s partner network growth programme has started with a real flurry as Head of Partner Recruitment Nick Tubb welcomes three new ‘Member Firms’ (or Partners) to the Auditel Business Community for their Winter training programme, the first of six induction programmes throughout the year ahead.

With businesses under pressure to both reduce costs and to measure and reduce carbon, demand for Auditel services are extremely high. There is an exciting buzz around the entire network, and for new Auditel Partners, now is the perfect time to explore starting an Auditel business. As well as the three new Member Firms joining the Auditel Business Community in January, there are also three more already booked on for courses in March and May 2023.

Nick Tubb explains why Auditel is so popular and presents such a significant opportunity to those seeking to start a new business or build one alongside existing activities. “Although the current economic circumstances are far from ideal for many, they do however present a very significant opportunity too for new Auditel Partners. Businesses are desperately trying to reduce costs and of course the increased prices in the energy sector are hitting everyone hard, but this is Auditel’s core area of expertise so receptiveness for how Auditel can help in delivering energy management or alternative energy solutions is very high right now.”

He continues “Added to this many businesses are under growing pressure to demonstrate environmental responsibility through measuring and reducing carbon emissions and wish to do this properly by becoming verified carbon neutral. Auditel work to extremely high standards internally and also use verification partners such as BSI and NQA which sets Auditel apart from cheap services and low-quality carbon calculators or those providing unverified carbon reduction or neutrality claims. It’s important it is done carefully and fully.”

Explaining further, Tubb advises “The more organisations that start to measure and manage their carbon emissions, usually on a long-term journey to ‘Net Zero’, the more this has a knock-on effect to other businesses in their supply chain. We are seeing some new Partners picking up lots of new client meetings within weeks of their business starting. Even one of the new trainees who literally only trained in December already has had a bunch of new potential client meetings, with project proposals for carbon footprint reports or management plans being submitted. New Auditel Partners are getting started faster than ever. This really is a most exciting time to be starting an Auditel business.”

Aberdeen-based Duncan Massey is amongst those joining Auditel. With 20 years in engineering, finance and analytical roles in the Oil & Gas industry Duncan
has recently attained a MSc in Energy Transition Systems. He explains why Auditel was the right fit “I am passionate about the energy transition and helping businesses to first understand their carbon emissions and then look at ways of reducing them. This area has become a huge focus area for companies, with many businesses requiring help and advice in this area.

He adds “I was extremely interested in consulting in this fast-moving area and adding value for clients. Auditel has built a tremendous expertise in Carbon accounting and management, and together with their additional services in procurement are well equipped to help companies manage current high energy costs to find savings, understand their emissions and seek carbon reductions. I have been very impressed by the professionalism of Auditel and the drive and hands-on involvement of the leadership team. I think the group provides great solutions for business and I’m excited about getting started.

Dropping south of the border (but not by far) are Tarun & Naveen Sehgal from Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Tarun has extensive corporate retail director experience across a number of recognised brands and together they already run a successful multi-site retail business. They are keen to
broaden their portfolio and are excited to develop a business that can support organisations in measuring and reducing their carbon emissions.

Tarun explains “Working in the transport energy sector I can see the pressures on reducing fossil fuel use and developing renewable energy and alternative energy solutions across all industries and operation sectors, and recognise the opportunity of being part of this transformation where right now is a key moment. Naveen and I are looking forward to getting started and supporting businesses in the North-East to reduce carbon and reduce costs. In the long-term we love the flexibility that Auditel offers and to have great control over our work/life balance.”

Naveen adds “We recognise that this like starting any new business requires hard work especially at the beginning but we have been extremely impressed by everything we’ve seen at Auditel and the longevity and success of the business and of it’s existing franchise partners is very comforting. We can’t wait to meet everyone together on training along with our fellow new Partner colleagues.”

Also joining, from London, is Robert Gersohn who managed operations for a Chartered Accountancy and Company Formations Specialist for many years. Whilst his initial interest in Auditel stemmed partly from his own experience in cost reduction projects in his previous roles, Robert’s enthusiasm for Auditel has also been fuelled by the potential to learn new skills and develop expertise in different sectors, carbon in particular.

Robert says “I am very excited to be joining Auditel and was greatly impressed by everyone I spoke to as I conducted my research process. The existing Partners were very open, helpful and inspiring. I am especially interested to learn about carbon auditing and hope to focus on projects in this sector in future, but I appreciate first and foremost I’ll be looking to engage with potential clients and get those first clients on board and projects underway.

With additional prospective Partners currently finalising the research process with a view to joining the Auditel Business Community over the months ahead, Auditel is attracting interest form people and existing consultants or small business directors seeking to join Auditel for a range of different purposes and benefits. With three Partner business models starting from just £20,000 and with the scope to start at the base level and ‘upgrade’ as your business grows, the Associate Partner Business model is especially popular, especially as for many people it greatly reduces or removes the need for external funding.

Make a difference and build a business to be proud of in 2023 by becoming a Member Firm of the Auditel Business Community. To find out more about joining Auditel, and with limited training places available,
