These days I describe myself as an 'Immediate Futurist' This reflects my main focus and helps distinguish me from the more general futurologists. Sometimes I am booked to speak after they have highlighted longer term trends and changes.
My own focus involves highlighting what accountants need to do differently to succeed in the immediate future. I get booked to speak to law firms and CFOs too.
Many of my articles on AccountingWeb date back to my time as consultant practice editor. Nowadays, when I'm not speaking on stage at conferences or at firms' aways days I tend to work with savvy sole practitioners who want more out of their practice. More clients, more money, more time, more satisfaction - or everything!
After qualifying as a charttered accountant I was in practice for 25 years bfore choosing move away from the provision of professional advice in 2006.
I have long been passionate about helping accountants generally so I am a keen blogger and commentator in the accounting and tax press. During my time as consultant practice editor of AccountingWEB I rote hundreds of articles here that have been viewed over a million times.

NB: I no longer give tax advice despite being a past Chairman of the Chartered Accountants’ Tax Faculty. I remain Chairman of the Tax Advice Network - the UK's highest ranked lead generation website for tax advisers and accountants. The network also publishes a weekly practical tax update for accountants in general practice and full tax support, on demand too. You can also use it as a lead generation resource for local people seeking tax advice from an accountant.
I have extensive network reach through my blog, talks, social media activity, articles and my regular 'Magic of Success' tips and tricks email that goes to thousands of accountants every week.
