It's not surprising that I'd be excited about welcoming two of the leaders of the fastest growing tech company in the UK and, according to Deloitte's, the third fastest growing tech company of all time, Allica Bank.

On this Humanise the Numbers podcast, we welcome Conrad Ford and Sophie Hossack, who share powerful insights, valuable ideas and principles around growth – and they should know, given the rate of growth they're experiencing at the moment.

If you want to hear Sophie and Conrad unpack some of the fundamentals behind their rapid growth and how it connects and is relevant to you and your accounting firm, please listen to this podcast. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have, and I hope you'll take one or two of the insights and use them for decision-making and action across your firm. I look forward to seeing you there.
