Don't you think it pays to have a clear picture about what your firm will look like in the future, say, in five years’ time? Your firm of the future?

In this podcast discussion with Sian Lloyd and Rebecca Johnson from the Cardiff-based firm Lewis Ballard, you'll hear them share how they’ve created a future-focused, advisory-focused, genuinely caring approach to running an accountancy practice, where there's a real human connection between the team and between the team and their clients. They also discuss what they're doing to advance their firm’s value in the eyes of their customers, by getting better at advisory work and at that future focus.

So why not seek out some inspiration for your firm of the future from Sian and Rebecca on this humanisethenumbers.online podcast? I believe you'll be pleasantly surprised by what was a light-hearted discussion, but one with a serious context. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Sian, Rebecca and the team recognise that people are not the same and are therefore not to be treated the same. The way you interact with a client determines the relationship you have with them.
