But don't just take our word for it, here's what our clients have to say!
After years of going through bookkeepers, I came across Blue Dragon, and very pleased I did! As a tradie I struggle with the bookkeeping and tax side of the business. Heidi took the time to understand what I needed and explained why it is so important to have our financials in check. Nothing was too hard , their strengths of a ‘can do’ attitude got my company back on track with our Tax, BAS and day to day bookkeeping. They were prompt, professional and were thorough with crisp communication, clear systems and great strategies.
Michael was employed as a contract CFO for a period of 6 months. Michael’s experience allowed him to quickly come to terms with the issues, to develop and implement workable plans, processes and reports that helped to resolve the issues facing the business. A key strength of Michael’s was his ability to develop working relationships in a short period of time, whether it be with customers, creditors, Board or team members. I certainly have no hesitation in recommending Michael and Blue Dragon Business Services.

Working with Michael Hamilton from Blue Dragon has been an exceptional experience. He helped us out of our darkest hour when we had to let our previous Finance Manager go and his assistant walked out in protest also. He truly was a ‘fix it CFO’ in all elements of the finance department. He rebuilt the team from the ground up and established systems, processes and comprehensive reporting which enabled us to get on with growing the business and funding our next big project. I would fully recommend Michael and his team for when the going gets tough in the finance arena!
Michael is a really impressive operator and I have observed him firsthand adding incredible insight, balance and value to senior management teams. Obviously as an experienced CFO he is always all over the numbers. He is also a savvy commercial operator, able to understand important key success factors for different organisations and (because he is really great with people) able to influence others and drive continuous business improvement.
Michael has great strengths in both the operational development and strategic growth of a business. He works with stakeholders to build a shared understanding of the key opportunities and then implements solutions that are sustainable and forward-looking. As a manager he was great at setting the vision and then building an environment in which we could achieve it.
I worked with Michael on a turnaround project for a furniture retailer who had struck difficult times. Michael was able to provide insights into the financial position and cash flow to support the business in a stressful and difficult period. Michael’s down-to-earth and direct approach meant that all stakeholders in the process were well-informed whilst we collaborated on a solution to take the business forward.
Michael is a consummate professional. He clearly held the highest possible standards in terms of recruiting a senior member of the team into the business. Michael was exceptionally thorough, his concerns were for the business and these concerns went quite deep. I really appreciate the degree to which Michael went to ensure he was doing his utmost for the company and also treating me like a respected, valued partner. His ethics, integrity and professionalism really shone and made him a joy to work with.
I have worked with Michael a number of times throughout his career. I have always found Michael to be meticulous in his approach to business and financials. He has an excellent understanding of technology and how this can be applied to improve business processes and functions. Michael is well respected who knows how to get things done and It is always a pleasure working with him.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Michael during an ERP implementation, Michael's ability to articulate the business requirements into successful business processes was a stand out. His business knowledge, attention to detail, ability to communicate at all levels and personal drive were key in this success.
Working with Michael on a professional basis, Michael has excellent communication skills and a very strong business aptitude but most of all always a pleasure to deal with.
I've worked with Michael over a number of years and found him to be very methodical and strategic in his approach to the delivery of his K.P.I's. Always focused on delivering above expectations, whilst communicating cohesively within the management team to achieve desired results. I've always enjoyed working with Michael due to his collaborative nature.
