About Us

About Safety In Numbers

Whether you’re only just starting out in business, or steadily growing, it can be lonely trying to juggle all the balls in the air at once.  And whilst employing several different team members to help may seem like a good answer, generally, you then spend too much time managing them as well.

Outsourcing your admin and financial management to us allows you total peace of mind.  No hassles or the expense of hiring a team of internal staff to do each task individually for you.   Just us as experts who can step in, hit the ground running, ensure your accounts are in order, your compliance needs are met and your admin doesn’t slow you down.

With Amy’s talents and background as an Executive Assistant, and Kylea’s background in financial management (with all the qualifications and training to go with it), you can rest assured that nothing will ever be missed.  We can take a whole heap of stress and hard work off your hands, particularly if the numbers and admin aren’t your forte, to help your business to thrive.

Because ultimately, when you’re running a business there is always Safety In Numbers.

Financial Management Extraordinaire

Hello, I’m Kylea Martin, your Financial Management extraordinaire!

Over the course of a 21-year career, I have developed my professional practice from accountancy focussed roles to a broader mandate encompassing financial controls, commercial strategy and operational efficiency.

My Mission To Help Business Owners…

Using the skills, I have developed over two decades in financial leadership roles, I want to help YOU succeed with YOUR business.

I have now set up my very own practice (this very business!) to dedicate to helping your business to grow.  We specialise in financial management, virtual CFO, business growth and all areas of traditional bookkeeping.

My passion is helping businesses to be leaders in their field.  I love nothing more than assisting business owners through education and development in the financial management of their business.  The success of my business is dependent on the success of your business, because Your Success Is Our Business.

My Background…

I have managed a comprehensive change management project, to merge the financial systems across two companies.  This 2-phase program first involved managing a staged migration of critical finance functions out of our department and into the centralised system within the parent organisation, with a concomitant restructuring of personnel.  In the second phase, my department has repositioned as a centralised provider of services for areas such as Accounts Receivable and time and billing for interstate offices, and I manage a remote team in addition to my on-site resources.

I have contributed to a broad range of operational areas, supporting better alignment between organisational strategy and key control functions, including rebuilding performance metrics for some 125 personnel and acting as a strategic partner to the business for partner on-boarding and other decisions with financial import.

I have been part of the Project Management team responsible for implementing a new Practice Management System nationally across the business.  This included being the Module Lead for the Practice Management module, one of the biggest components of the project.

My expansive experience is simply unbeatable and will certainly ensure your success.

Our Values

Our values support our vision and shape our culture.  They are the essence of our identity – our principles, beliefs and philosophies.

Compassion

Compassion – a deep awareness of and sympathy for another’s suffering

At Safety In Numbers, we walk in the shoes of our clients we serve and those with whom we work.

We celebrate our role in supporting our clients in the success of their business.  We are truly compassionate and genuinely understand, feel and identify with their needs.  We are compassionate and driven to delivering a great customer experience through outstanding service and a desire for successful outcomes.

Empathy

Empathy – the ability to sense other people’s emotions, coupled with the ability to imagine what someone else might be thinking or feeling

At Safety In Numbers our ability to see the world from the perspective of our clients is one of the most crucial tools in our business toolbox.

We value high commitment and cooperation and pride ourselves on our ability to understand another person’s perspective or circumstance.  We are curious and possess a desire to know and understand our clients.   This helps us to be successful in conflict resolution because understanding diverse perspectives allows collaborative solutions to rise from chaos.

Respect

Respect – a way of treating or thinking about something or someone

At Safety In Numbers, we value differences and allow others to express themselves in order to work together toward common goals to make our clients stronger.

We demonstrate a high regard for clients, one another, partners and regulatory obligations to support our clients in the success of their business.  We believe in the importance of all stakeholders and treat all people with dignity and value the collective power of teamwork.  Our job is to serve our clients, simplify their lives, and to help them to be successful, whether they are like us or not.

Courage

Courage – the willingness to face not a physical danger but emotional pain, disapproval, financial insecurity, or uncertainty rather than compromise an ethical principle

At Safety In Numbers our courage isn’t about making rash decisions, it’s about being brave and savvy; using our experience and judgement to drive our clients’ success.

We lead with principles.  It is what distinguishes us from our competitors and what helps us to drive our clients to succeed in their business.   We help our clients to make decisions with the potential for revolutionary changes in their market.   By driving our clients to be bold, we will help them to inspire their teams, energise their customers and position themselves as leaders in societal change.

Empowerment

Empowerment – a process that challenges our assumptions about the way things are and can be.  It challenges our basic assumptions about power, helping, achieving, and succeeding

At Safety In Numbers, we believe empowerment is the expansion of freedom of choice and actions.  As our clients exercise real choice, they gain increased control over their business.

We encourage our clients to adopt an error-embracing environment for their business, that will empower them to lead and make decisions that will lead to the success of their business.  This process of self-empowerment enables their teams to overcome their sense of powerlessness and lack of influence and to recognize and use their resources.  To do work with power.

Consistency

Consistency – A harmonious uniformity or agreement among things or parts.  That which is consistent is that which is at peace.

At Safety In Numbers we believe by focusing on our clients first, being consistent and always serving others, we can find success and happiness for our clients.

We believe that consistent actions will create consistent results for our clients.   Consistency is at the core of our business.  From our management team to the services we provide our clients, consistency throughout the entire service offering is paramount.  Maintaining a consistent level of service is essential, ensuring that clients always receive and expect high standards from us.   Our clients deserve nothing less.

Trust

Trust – Assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something.

At Safety In Numbers, we believe trust is at the foundation of every successful business.  Without trust, nothing gets done.

We believe you can’t package trust in a bottle and pull it out when the time is right.  It must be nurtured and developed consistently from the very beginning of a relationship.  By working to provide consistent and proactive communication, we show our clients that we have their interests above our own.   We work to earn trust, every interaction with our clients is an opportunity to build relationships and nurture trust.

Communication

Communication – exchange of information between individuals through a common system

At Safety In Numbers communication is leadership.  Clear, intentional, and effective communication and feedback between each other and our clients as the most effective way to create diverse ideas.

We believe in sharing information, insight and advice frequently and constructively and managing tough situations with courage and candour.  Effective communication starts with genuineness and trust and can help foster a positive working relationship between us and our clients
