About Us

You are Not Alone In the Wilderness Of Business

Our mission is to provide a safe, creative space where talented women 40+ and new to self-employment, can get the customised support needed to launch their own successful business


The founder and managing director of Business Bright, Ally O'Meally-Watson - known as the 'creative-minded' accountant, is a Chartered Management Accountant (CIMA). She has over 20 years of accountancy experience within the creative industry working with companies such as award winning, Blackburn's Design consultants (London), Clean Break Theatre Company, The Welsh National Opera, Cinetig films and many others. Ally is also a director and chair of Winding Snake Productions, and she is on the Board of I Am Woman Business Academy. She has recently started volunteering with the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship. Ally loves all things creative and uses engaging worksheets, exercises and dashboards to teach and coach her clients. 

Ally developed Business Bright, after realising that traditional accountancy, that only looks backwards at historical results did little to help her clients really move their business forward. Working with clients and knowing how much they sacrificed to pursue their dream of owning their own businesses, it was a tragedy to witness some of them making poor business decisions because of a lack of core business skills and in many cases a downright fear of numbers.

Business Bright offers strategic Finance and Business Coaching rather than just accountancy and our goal is help creative minded women, forty plus and fabulous to build a successful business that is fun, family friendly and fulfills their wildest dreams.
