How do you really humanise the numbers in your firm?

And by that, I mean, how do you deeply connect with your team and with your clients, so that you transform the results of your firm?

In this podcast discussion with Carl Reader, the first of two podcasts recorded, you'll hear Carl's passion, verve and zeal for the humanity that he believes is necessary to run a successful accounting firm.

You'll hear his take on the processes and systems that tie him and his team to the work they do with their clients. He also talks about the use of technology but also the importance of making a connection with your business owner clients.

Take a little time out and invest in listening to what Carl has got to say and share around his successful firm d&t Chartered Accountants. I'm confident there will be one or two gems, if not more, for you and your firm to take away.

So why not please join Carl and Paul on this Humanise The Numbers podcast, the first of two podcasts they've recorded together.
