Xero Platinum Partner Advisor

Training and Beyond is a Platinum Xero Partner and a multi-award winning business. Owner Melanie Morris has worked in partnership with Xero since the early days and is a keen supporter of small business in New Zealand.

When it comes to bookkeeping Melanie has ‘skin in the game’.  In 2010 she founded the New Zealand Bookkeepers Association or the (ICNZB) and has since consulted with both government agencies and private industry to provide strategic leadership and advice for small business development and cloud-based solutions.

Mel maintains a close day to day involvement with bookkeeping by running of her own small business Training and Beyond – conversion and training specialists for Xero and bookkeeping solutions. This provides an intimate working connection with other small businesses enriching Melanie’s broad strategic overview and her deep understanding of the real-world issues facing Kiwi SMBs.

“Mel and the team at Training & Beyond are fantastic to deal with. Having Mel come into our practice to pass on her learnings and experiences of teaching clients has been invaluable. It is the subtle ways she imparts knowledge and builds rapport with clients that has been of most value”.
