Confident Cashflow was founded in 2017 and is still run by Nicki Kinton. The business is based in Swindon, Wiltshire but helps clients all over the UK.
Nicki is a credit management professional with considerable experience in working with businesses to ease the pain of not being in control of their credit terms.
Her career has been spent working in multi-million- and billion-pound businesses where every decision made regarding credit management is not only critical but needs to be well managed within a clear framework.
Nicki’s decision to strike out with her own business centred around her belief that smaller businesses also have the right to access this type of control. In most cases they don’t even know it exists
From sole traders to £billion corporates, it matters that the right decisions are made with regards to giving someone credit, even if that is simply the time period we give a client to pay an invoice. It’s only right that a business feels in control of this activity given the, often severe, impact when things go wrong.
Nicki’s love of all things numbers stems from work experience at her father’s accountancy practice. She worked with him while at school and university and later went on to become one of the first people to hold a First-Class BA Hons degree in credit management.
She is qualified with the Chartered Institute of Credit Management (CICM).
When she’s not in the office, Nicki loves music and being outside with her dog, Bella, a Labrador/Malinois cross.
She’s a keen musician, playing French Horn with several orchestras, including The Film Orchestra, Swindon Symphony Orchestra and Marlborough Concert Orchestra.
As a rugby lover, Nicki is an avid Leicester Tigers fan, and supports the national team whenever she can get to a match.
If she has any spare time, Nicki enjoys collecting (and drinking, of course) different gins. She currently has over 200! She reads to unwind and is a fan of crime fiction.
What our clients have to say about us
"I contacted Nicki for help with a debt that I didn’t really want to chase myself – but didn’t want to allow it to go unpaid.
Nicki acted promptly and took the time to explain the steps to take, helping me to view the situation in a more practical manner, instead of viewing it emotionally.
I felt much more in control of the situation after speaking to Nicki, and the steps that Nicki told me to take have resulted in a prompt payment of overdue invoices.
I can’t recommend Nicki highly enough – she gave me the information and strategies I needed – not only for this case, but to prevent me from getting into this situation again."
"This morning I spent a very productive couple of hours with Nicki, going through how I manage my business finances.
I’ve been in business almost three years but due to some health challenges haven’t really felt able to get on top of things until now.
Nicki showed me how to set up a simple cash flow report so I can plan ahead for business expenses, rather than always chasing my tail
(Those annual subscriptions always catch me out but they won’t now!)
She also introduced me to easy ways to track things like the return on my marketing spend I’m so excited about doing this now and it always felt like a chore before.
Nicki is patient, knowledgeable and doesn’t make you feel as if you should know all this stuff. Armed with her tips and advice I now feel much more confident and in control of the financial side of my business.
I’d definitely recommend working with Nicki to check the financial health of your business. It’s well worth the investment!"
"So credit management didn’t sound that exciting to me but I booked Nicki to give a talk to my networking group because I thought it would be useful. Useful is an understatement! The talk was pitched perfectly to small business owners and directly addressed the issues involved. Nicki took questions brilliantly and made the whole topic make sense. She gave some excellent advice and I hope to work with her in future. Thank you Nicki!"
"Nicki spoke to my group of 70 plus women at an event that we held. The topic was Cash Flow. She commanded the room with such a lovely manner, everyone was fully engaged from start to finish.
She is such a pleasure to work with. Nicki is reliable, informative and really does the extra. She shines through with her professionalism and knowledge."
"I met Nicki through a local networking group as I was looking for someone to write Terms and Conditions for my new venture into the corporate world and to refresh the T&Cs I had for my online eLearning business.
The process was professional, timely and interactive. Nicki had a good understanding of what I needed but made sure that any specific requirements were captured and added to the documents. I would definitely recommend her, both from a professional perspective in what she delivers, but also the engagement and connection that we made at a personal level."
"I just wanted to say how grateful I am for Nicki's help and advice with my terms and conditions and also with chasing late payments, she was efficient, clear and professional and worth her weight in gold. Us small businesses all need a Nicki on our side. Book her now!"
