Welcome back to issue 21 of Curated by Accountants.
I’ve been traveling around Australia this month with the BGL team for #BGLRegTech, and it has been great to chat with so many accountants about problems, opportunities, struggles and questions. It sparked a revival of #StephQA, my YouTube show where I answer questions from accountants and bookkeepers and interview some other people in our industry. After 40 Episodes I’ve covered processes, technology, systems, revenue, social media, advisory, leadership and many more issues. If you have a question for the show message me via LinkedIn or tweet using the hashtag #StephQA
