3:09 – What is People Advisory?
3:34 – My initial reaction was that People Advisory strayed too far from what an accountant should be doing. This started the debate between Will and me on the future of an accountant’s role.
3:58 – Will gave me his thought process behind People Advisory, which made a lot of sense.
4:40 – I provide an example of how People Advisory might work as a service offering in your firm.
