Digitalising your practice

The latest podcast in our series about digitalising your practice is now available. ACCA members Gavin Spencer of Beach Accountants and Emily Inman of Zynct talk about why you need to have your practice on the cloud and discuss practical aspects – such as whether you need to have every client on the cloud, and whether there are any cheaper options for small clients. Listen now.

We have more resources to support the digitalisation of your practice.

Strategy podcast series

In collaboration with Remarkable Practice, we’ve developed a series of five podcasts which look at strategy. Paul Shrimpling and Doug Aitken of Remarkable Practice set the scene in an overview podcast which is now available. Every week we will release a new podcast where Paul chats to ACCA members about:

  • vision and OKRs – where are you taking your firm and what quarterly objectives and key results (OKRs) are you committed to? Featuring Glyn Davison of Harlands and Gareth Pinder of Griffiths & James and Parker & Co
  • values – what behavioural standards are you committed to, so that your team and clients know what to expect from your firm? Featuring Cheryl Sharp of Pink Pig Financials and Phool Ashraf of Gains Accountants
  • purpose – what’s your firm’s ‘reason for being’? What is it you stand for that you, your team and your clients (existing and new) see as truly meaningful and worthwhile supporting? Featuring James Lizars of Thrive and Steph Rickaby of Sunflower Accounts
  • inevitable trends, unyielding rocks and substantial challenges – what changes in the world are going to have a meaningful impact on your firm? And what things are immovable cornerstones on which you can build your firm’s future around? And what reality checks should we apply to make sure your firm’s strategy is really worth following? Featuring Emily Inman of Zynct and Stephen Pell of ICONAC.
