SHANNON KEEN - BOOKKEEPER
With a family background in broad acre cropping and grazing, a career working in agribusiness finance and a Certificate IV in bookkeeping, Shannon is well qualified to assist our clients with their bookkeeping requirements.
Seeing her clients achieve their business goals is a highlight for this friendly professional. An integral member of the Basecamp Bookkeeping team, Shannon loves working with others who innovate and are focused on delivering quality outcomes for their clients.
Understanding the stresses of running a business of any size, Shannon is motivated by being able to give clients back their time, removing stress and providing value and support. She’s a strong believer in the power of delegation – not trying to ‘do it all’ but finding ways to focus on your own strengths by allowing others to use theirs!
Shannon’s time outside work is spent with family, travelling, gardening and reading and a favourite quote from Wayne Dyer provides a daily challenge - ‘Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change’.
Shannon and the Basecamp Bookkeeping team look forward to working with you and your business.
WENDY GUTH - BOOKKEEPER
Wendy’s many years of experience as a book keeper and small business consultant brings a depth of knowledge to the Basecamp team. With qualifications including an Advance Diploma in Accounting and membership as an Associate of Institute of Practising Accountants, Wendy is also a registered BAS Agent, a Xero Certified Advisor and a MYOB Certified Consultant.
Wendy loves “making memories” with her family and taking the time to enjoy the little things, from picnics in the park, bushwalking and camping trips to jumping on the push bike and exploring. She is inspired by enabling her clients to find balance between their day to day business and compliance, so they too can have time to enjoy life!
The fact that Basecamp offers clients the ultimate bookkeeping package is something that Wendy thinks is wonderful, saving clients time and hassle with weekly payables, invoicing and receipting, bank reconciliations and management of tax and super payments all part of the service.
A key piece of advice which Wendy offers her clients is to make the most of the meaningful and accurate reports at their fingertips. You are able to make informed decisions providing your accounting software has solid foundations, individualised to your business and that quality data is inputted.
