Dougal Allan – Professional Athlete & Coach

As a world class off-road endurance athlete (a second and a third in the last two Speight’s Coast to Coast races, to name but two of his many achievements), Dougal Allan juggles an intensive training routine and a small coaching business in Wanaka.  His typical clients are active, healthy middle aged blokes who are keen on skiing, biking, hiking, hunting and kayaking.  They may be training for an endurance event like Challenge Wanaka or Contact Epic Lake Hawea, or simply wanting strength training in order to lead a more active and injury-free lifestyle.

Dougal has some nice things to say about Findlay and Co:

“It makes a difference that Findlay and Co are small and community focused.  They are involved in the same things as I am, such as Challenge Wanaka.  They lead by example, living healthy and active lifestyles themselves.

“Findlay and Co are very approachable.  You’re in a warm environment when you walk into their offices.  There is never any hesitation if you need help.

“I like the Xero software that Findlay and Co introduced to me.  I can do reconciliations on the go.  Their job and my job are made easier by the functionality Xero offers.  It is convenient and saves me time and money.

“Xero gives me a level of self-involvement in this side of the business.  I can take ownership of my business.   It’s been wicked!”
