The Accounting Influencers podcast is for progressive accounting firms and the people that lead them, work in them and serve them. In each weekly episode, BD Academy founder and top accounting growth specialist Rob Brown interviews world class accounting leaders and global influencers about what makes the good accounting firms great and the good accountants world class. Guests are either: 1. PRACTITIONERS: firm-wide leaders, managing partners, CEOs, seasoned rainmakers or top BD and marketing directors of larger accounting firms and the networks they are a part of. 2. THOUGHT LEADERS: accounting profession influencers, disrupters and thought leaders who advise, train, serve and speak into the accounting profession. Some are experts (commentators, authors, consultants). Others are in business (suppliers, vendors and partners to accounting firms). Guests are asked questions such as: ✓ What makes the good accounting firms great? ✓ What do the progressive, thriving accounting firms do well? ✓ How are the top accounting firms standing out, winning work and achieving growth? ✓ What are the trends, stats and critical issues shaping larger accounting firms? ✓ What makes a top performer, work winner or promotable accountant in an accounting firm? Topics discussed include growth, digital, legacy, value, leadership, succession, culture, BD, marketing, positioning, branding, differentiation, mindset, technology, recruitment, trends, disrupters and opportunities.

His unique BD Academy program is a year long curriculum of inhouse training and work winning strategies that creates an army of confident, effective and strategic work winners in large accounting firms. One top 40 accounting firm has just added £3m of new work from the BDA program (made up of advisory, compliance and cross-selling fees), which represents £20m+ in lifetime value to the firm. From their largely rural, agricultural and manufacturing client base, this represents a stellar impact on revenue.
