About Us

Proactive. Diligent. Caring.

Delivering innovative financial solutions for creative businesses since 1995

We didn't set out to market our financial services practice to purpose-driven, creative businesses. They found us.

You see, we are passionate about business. And we are passionate about building successful and sustainable businesses. We understand the unique problems emerging and creative businesses face – because we’ve been there, too. Our business has grown exponentially since it was established by financial strategist Susan Wahhab in 1995. Read more about our story here. 

We have shared in the success stories of hundreds of emerging and leading businesses for more than 20 years, and our reputation is second to none. At Winner Partnership, we know what works and what doesn’t. There are no one-size-fits-all approaches here – we take pride in our customised services to maximise your financial position and support your individual needs.

Our clients are from a range of industries and include filmmakers, psychologists, musicians, artists, chefs, human resources firms, architects, fashion designers, stylists, tech start-ups and business coaches.

Get in touch

We know that finding the right accountant to partner with you is a choice not to be taken lightly. That’s why we offer only potential business clients 45-60 minutes free consultation to walk you through your needs, the scope of your goals, and your budget. We do not provide tax, business or financial advice in the free meeting.

Susan Wahhab - is known for listening carefully and asking insightful questions to transform her clients' financial lives.

When Susan established the practice in 1995, she worked overtime and weekends and had no social life for the first seven years while building the practice. She survived running the practice and juggling home and office while having a baby in 2008. Now she knows what it means to balance work and home (while still juggling)! So far it has been a fulfilling and fruitful journey...

Susan is the author of the transformational and practical book Money Intelligence®. Susan is passionate about helping people achieve financial liberation. She truly believes that people can become financially liberated by developing a healthy relationship with money. Buy the book in either printed copy or ebook and learn more about being money intelligent on shopify. The printed copy is available for sale in our city office.
