About Ian’s presentation:
“Break the Binds of Accounting Tradition Before They Break You”
Ian is bothered by the number of accounting professionals that continue to do what they have always done and not make the appropriate changes with the times. Technology cycles are changing so rapidly, client expectations have shifted, but accountants/practices haven’t shifted accordingly. Ian’s presentation weaves the story of the changing times to a practice of the future.
