About O’Connells OBM

O’Connells OBM is a team of proactive chartered accountants and business advisers who, put simply, help their clients get what they want – whether that’s building a better business, better protecting their assets, achieving financial independence – the list can go on.

To do that, O’Connells OBM think proactively, ask key questions, challenge the status quo and meet regularly with their clients to discuss and kick around thoughts about their client’s overall situation – the bigger picture.

That approach fits with what O’Connells OBM is all about – creating a positive impact in the lives of people connected to them.

For us, success in business is about much more than numbers, it always has been. Business is a vehicle that can create a positive impact on the lives of those who are connected to it, and as such, we’re drawn to the B Corporation community given we share a similar view about what success in business looks like.

The Change We Seek®

Success in business for O'Connells OBM starts with how the individuals inside a business are treated. They believe that if a business can be run in such a way that allows employees to think, act and feel like business owners – powerful and positive things can happen.

They’ve seen that for themselves, as players of The Great Game of Business – an open book management approach that not only improves business results, but the lives of the people who drive those results – which fits perfectly with what they are all about.

O’Connells OBM believes strongly that by educating, empowering and engaging team members in running the business – everybody wins given the workplace culture it creates.

With global employee engagement levels currently at 13% (Gallup, 2013) – O’Connells OBM look forward to sharing their passion for The Great Game of Business within the B Corporation community and beyond to lift how employees can contribute to building a better business and at the same time, bettering themselves and the communities they live in.
