Jess Slack.is a chartered accountant, part-time finance director and Excel trainer, and has been trialling the ChatGPT tool for a few months to see how it could potentially be used by accountants. She talks to pod host Tom Herbert about how the service and others like it could help the accounting industry become more efficient.
