    November "Inside Business" Series

    Wondering why you don’t have any money in the bank but thought your business was going well?  Or maybe your business is not going so well, and you just can’t work out why? Do you think tax is ruining your business cashflow?  Or maybe you have been pretending you understood finances for so long (but you don’t!) you can’t possibly admit it now!

    Bentleys and the SCBWN are offering you an opportunity to increase your financial literacy and truly understand all those things you wanted to know about tax and finance but just didn’t know who to ask.

    Where is all my money? - 21 November

    If you feel like all your income has disappeared and there's nothing left to pay your tax each year this session is for you! We will help you implement strategies to ensure you know where your profit is going and importantly, when your tax is due.

    There is parking for this event in the general car park next to Bentleys Boardroom. There are no spaces available underneath however there is often street parking available as well.

    Find out all you need to know with our two expert speakers Peta Grenfell and Amanda Arnold.


    Peta Grenfell

    Peta is a Partner at Bentleys Qld, and the Managing Director of the Bentleys Sunshine Coast office.

    She is a CPA with significant experience assisting clients with the proactive management of both their business and taxation matters. While she has worked with clients across a diverse range of industries and issues, she has a particular interest in:

    - professional services businesses (including medical and legal professionals);

    - the building and construction industry;

    - foreign tax;

    - superannuation, including SMSF’s;

    - small business structuring


    Peta has a passion for educating small business owners so they can better understand and manage their own businesses, increasing their chance of success in what can be a challenging small business market.

    And while Peta sounds like your typical accountant she had a ‘life’ before tax! After a stint at one of the big four banks, Peta spent time roaming the world working in many different industries and roles helping her understand what makes businesses, staff and owners tick (and how to live on super tight budget!). Returning home, she worked for the ATO before (quickly) realising she wanted to escape the bureaucracy and help small businesses, so they didn’t end up on the wrong side of the ATO in the first place. 

    A mum to two young boys Peta juggles life as a working businesswoman, helping her genuinely understand the challenges facing women in business every day.

    Amanda Arnold

    Boring accountant? That’s not how you would describe Amanda! She’s a mum to 3 busy kids, she’s a self-published author, she’s a adventurer and she’s run her own business – all in the disguise of being an accountant!

    Originally from Tully in North Queensland, she moved south to pursue her career working in one of the Big 4 accounting practices. She is a qualified Chartered Accountant and has worked with clients across all industries. After 13 years, Amanda took a career break to have children and ended up moving to the Sunshine Coast. Never one to sit still, Amanda self-published and marketed 2 cookbooks in her ‘spare time’. She went on to sell over 3000 copies, which is no mean feat considering her ‘office’ was her kitchen bench! When her kids were old enough, she returned to accounting with Bentleys – and found the perfect balance between career and family life.

    Her parents owned a small business for over 30 years and she has a true appreciation for what business owners go through and the challenges they face day to day. All of these experiences truly enable her to develop real connections with her clients as she understands the realities of being in business. Being an advisor and educator to women in business is Amanda's specialty and where her passion lies. 

    This event is limited and available only for our members.

    December "Inside Business" Series

    Wondering why you don’t have any money in the bank but thought your business was going well?  Or maybe your business is not going so well, and you just can’t work out why? Do you think tax is ruining your business cashflow?  Or maybe you have been pretending you understood finances for so long (but you don’t!) you can’t possibly admit it now!

    Bentleys and the SCBWN are offering you an opportunity to increase your financial literacy and truly understand all those things you wanted to know about tax and finance but just didn’t know who to ask.

    Where to from here? - 5 December

    Once you know how your business is performing, know where your profit is going and have the timing of your tax payments under control - it’s time to look at ways to improve your business, and ensure you protect it into the future. In this session we will workshop a list of strategies that should be reviewed every year including topics such as the structure your business operates through, insurances – and why you need them, wills and POAs and most importantly the plan you have for your business and how to execute it.

    There is parking for this event in the general car park next to Bentleys Boardroom. There are no spaces available underneath however there is often street parking available as well.

    Patrice Tipoki has enjoyed a career in the entertainment industry from a young age. Her rich history of music and culture stems from her Maori/ Irish background. Growing up in a musical family, performing was what they did. Since then Patrice went on to do her first professional musical when she was 7 (The King & I), to be one of the youngest graduates from the Music Theatre course at WAAPA (Western Academy of Performing Arts) and to play lead roles in some of the most successful musicals in the world. Patrice was asked by Sir Cameron Mackintosh to play Fantine in his new production of Les Miserables. She performed this role around Australia, Singapore, Dubai and on the West End in London. Patrice was also nominated for a Helpmann Award for her portrayal as Fantine. Other musical credits include Nala in Disney’s The Lion King, alternating the role of Elphaba in Wicked, and Belle in Beauty and the Beast.

    Patrice also loves recording and has released a few singles including “Christmas All Year Long”, “Son of God” from internationally acclaimed pianist Paul Cardall’s album “A New Creation” and her debut album “A Musical Heart” which was released to rave reviews and topped the iTunes Charts. Patrice was signed to Sony BMG  as a part of Girlband who also released the singles “Party Girl” and “Electric”, toured Australia supporting the Rogue Traders and had their own TV show and clothing range.

    Patrice was blessed to perform as a soloist with the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square, formerly known as the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Her collaboration with Paul Cardall has just been acknowledged by the Gospel Music Association in the US when it was included on his award-winning album, “Christmas” and won Best Instrumental Album. 

    When Patrice isn’t on tour, she’s based in Queensland, Australia and also loves being a wife and a mother of 4.
