But I hang out with accountants. Quite a lot actually given I’m not one myself. So my version of ‘geeking out’ was discovering industry legend Paul Dunn was going to be in Australia.
Since writing software with Hewlett Packard for the accounting profession back in 1972 and creating the Accountants’ Bootcamp in 1992, Paul has spent years advising and inspiring the industry. He also co-authored the modern accountant’s bible – The Firm of the Future. These days his B1G1 initiative is gaining momentum, giving business owners and their customers a way to give back.
So the call went out, the Aussie team rallied, and we tracked Paul down at a noisy cafe in Melbourne to talk about the future of the profession.
