Do you remember why you became an accountant?
For me, it was about wanting to make a difference. As an accountant, I believed that I could make my mark on the world by helping my clients build successful, rewarding companies.
But I soon realised that much of an accountant’s time is spent on compliance, and the emphasis is most often on what happened in the business in the past – last month, or last year.
Yet, as accountants, our training, aptitude, insights, experience and, above all, relationships with clients, uniquely position us to look to the future – to advise on what should happen next month and next year to drive the growth and development of the business.
We believe that when truly empowered to do this, the accountant’s impact can be transformative – for clients and companies, but also beyond – to employees, communities and everyone the business touches.
