To celebrate the 50th edition of No Accounting for Taste, the AccountingWEB podteam – Richard Hattersley and Tom Herbert – left the comforts of their Bristol podbooth and travelled to flinder HQ, which sits in the shadow of London’s Shard.

Flinder’s head honcho Alastair Barlow greeted the team with his three Accounting Excellence awards. Ah yes, the awards. Many have questioned what it takes to win just one accounting award. So in this podcast, Barlow reveals the secret sauce behind his firm’s hat trick at last month’s awards bash.

Also stopping by the office was Eriona Bajrakurtaj, the managing director of Majors Accounts. Both Alastair and Eriona are proponents of having a growth mindset and attribute this in part to their firm’s success.

Aside from the Carol Dweck name dropping, the pod quartet also discusses the week’s accounting news which covers everything from wellbeing and anxiety to the troubles at debt-riddled Pizza Express before finishing with some IR35 chat.
