👨🔬 Innovative Firm of the Year
Alastair commented “Luke and I are so proud of what flinder has achieved in such a short space of time and how the entire team is fully aligned to our vision.”
“It’s a testament to the depth of our strategy that we were able to win a hat trick of awards in one evening – one that spans technology, people and a laser focus on delivering an exceptional client service, and continually challenging everything we do.”
Alastair goes on to add “The Innovative Firm of the Year was our hat trick win on the night and we were utterly overjoyed; innovation means so much to us at flinder! We feel a strong sense of responsibility to drive the profession forward. It’s what we live and breathe, and the reason we set the firm up in the first place; to do things differently and to continually challenge convention. This one make us incredibly proud that we’re leading the charge on what it means to be an accountant, what we’re delivering to our clients and the way in which we’re delivering it. We’re out to change the external perception of what an accountant is, how they operate and the breadth and depth they have to offer a business in terms of insight and strategy. We see data and technology as hugely important and enabling foundations of the finance function; our investment in our own Data Engineering team to really take advantage of these drivers is just one of the ways we’re innovating.”
“Accounting Excellence means a lot to us. In fact, one of our team values is excellence; “we pride ourselves on our quality and deliver on what we say we will and to the highest standard possible”, so to win 3 Accounting Excellence awards, back to back in one night makes us feel so proud of the team and what we’ve all achieved together. It’s also a pretty euphoric feeling! While we always strive to live and breathe our values, develop an inclusive culture for our team to develop and deliver an exceptional service to our clients to meet our strategy, we’re very humbled from winning these awards!”
“We were kindly hosted by ACCA and Capitalise.com and it was fantastic to share and celebrate this success with our friends and partners.”
