This is podcast 2 of 5 of the ACCA Strategy Series.

What does an accountancy firm do to make strategy really come to life in their firm?

On this podcast, you'll hear Glen, Phil and Gareth, from two different accounting firms, talk about what they've worked out has to happen in their firms so that their vision, their purpose, their values really come to life. 

So it means something, it isn't corporate BS or just a marketing strapline for strategy.

It's actually happening in their firms and they're living it!
