ATHIS - Profitable Practical Advice

Schools, sports clubs, associations and charities increasingly depend upon income generated from non core activities. ATHIS specialise in identifying that potential and in delivering the income.

Our objective is to maximise your income. To achieve that we apply a strict timeline reducing our fees to increase your bottom line.

" We followed the crowd and did what every school does and got it wrong. I now recognise that well meaning governors may be commercially minded but if that experience is not industry specific or locally based, their free help can be expensive".
Patrick Walker - Former Bursar Queenswood School
