COVID-19: How the industry adapted & equipping your firm for the next stage


To grasp the full impact of COVID-19 on the accounting industry, we surveyed almost 1,000 accountants across 20 countries. They told us how their firms have been affected, how they are adapting to working remotely, and what they want to see happen next.

In this video, Lachlan and Richard discuss what this survey revealed to us, how your firm can prepare as you shift your gaze to the future, and what can be learned from the accounting firms that transitioned to remote work seamlessly. They are also joined by Adarsh Dutt from Oyster Hub, who shares his own firm's experience.
