Our presenter

Director, Hayes Knight

Greg Hayes

Greg-Hayes-ProfileRCCH Australia describe Greg as a “serial entrepreneur.” An apt title for the founder of the Hayes Knight group, Knowledge Shop, and Merit Wealth. He is a practice management specialist, innovator, and published author who mentors and assists other firms to grow and develop their potential. An accountant for over 30 years, Greg has built a successful Australasian accounting group from modest beginnings in the outer suburbs of Sydney. A popular presenter, Greg has ‘been there and done that.’ There are no untested theories or marketing hype – just practical, realistic principles that are at the core of top quartile firms across Australia.

Beyond his practice management knowledge, Greg is a business valuation specialist. These two skills sets are a powerful combination when applied to the business of accounting. He regularly values accounting practices and has developed valuation models for the profession that look through to the core of how a successful accounting firm functions and what it should deliver.

Greg is a familiar face in the Australian media as an expert commentator on business and taxation issues. He is a former member of the Advisory Review Panel for the Board of Taxation.
