The professional service firm’s landscape has changed dramatically over the last five years. The combined impact of technology, the global financial crisis and local regulatory changes are transforming the way you do business.          

I have been consulting to professional service firms since 1997,and have had the privilege of working and interacting with some of the world’s leading professional service firm advisers and thought leaders.My clients range  from the sole practitioner to some of the larger, more established professional firms in South Africa.

While seminars are a great platform for disseminating information,generating discussion and networking amongst colleagues, some of the key challenges have been the implementation of new ideas, getting firmwide buy-in and the cost and time of staff participation.

I have developed a range of articles  that will assist you to inter alia:

  •  Develop an actionable firm wide strategy
  • Up skill partners, managers and staff on the same platform
  •  Harness technology to leverage collaboration

I will help you build a winning strategy by prompting careful and deliberate thought through a range of articles on a monthly basis.
