Business Turnaround Specialist | Financial Educator & Mentor | Group Chair TEC 49

Tanya Titman, experienced business coach and mentor, is an award winning accountant with over 20 years of real world experience. She runs multiple businesses with a team of over 25 staff.

Tanya loves working with women in business to empower them with the knowledge of their numbers. She presents the Acceler8 Program to women in Brisbane and provides online financial literacy courses to women all over Australia. Tanya has a unique ability to both inspire and ensure accountability in order to challenge women to achieve their goals.

Tanya is also Managing Director of Consolid8, an innovative accounting practice based in Brisbane and servicing clients throughout Australia. The Consolid8 team is focused on providing ‘real world’ advice and using their experience from the real world to help their clients achieve financial success.

At the heart of it, Tanya is a CPA with 20 years experience in working with SME clients in areas such as strategic planning and management accounting. Tanya has built her own business, Consolid8, from a small client base with 1 staff member in 2008 to business that has achieved over 500% growth and 25 staff, as well as incorporating an on-site child care for staff and clients.

With a focus on innovation and technology, Consolid8 is a strong advocate for cloud based technology, winning Xero Accounting Partner of the Year in 2016. She was also honoured to be recognised as Queensland finalist in 2016 Telstra Business Women’s Awards in the Entrepreneur Category.

As an active member of CPA Australia, Tanya loves to give back to the organisation that has provided her with the ability to build an outstanding business. She is a regular speaker at CPA events and enjoys mentoring young accountants and public practitioners as they embark on their journey into public practice.

Tanya’s desire to challenge herself while developing Consolid8 led her to TEC.  Initially as a member she found she was able to be influenced by people from business outside the accounting industry. Importantly for Tanya, the group wasn’t just there to congratulate her on what went well but rather exists to question and challenge her – and each other – for the purposes of improving the business and her role within it.
