Des O’Neill runs a multi-million-euro turnover business called OmniPro out of Ireland. It serves accountants all over the globe in practice support, practice development, company secretarial, tax and legal, corporate finance, continuing professional development and online information products. Des is passionate about empowering accountants to deliver transformative results for their clients. Shownotes:

  • The professional accounting associations don’t always serve their accountancy members
  • The accounting profession is in a good place because of what’s changing in society, in business and in technology, hence the need for advice
  • How the perception of accountants has fallen from being held up on a pedestal to a less exalted position of just another advisor
  • An emphasis on technical expertise has diminished the power of accountants to deliver strong business advice
  • The biggest challenge many accounting firms face is not having a vision for their future and getting strategic about their business
  • The benefit of a proven pathway or process to develop a vision and a strategic plan for your accounting firm
  • The power of focusing on one thing, which if done right, makes everything else easier or unnecessary
  • The power of an inventory tracker to help busy accountants focus on what’s really important and what to stop doing
  • The Dan Sullivan question – if we look ahead 3 years, what has to have happened for you to be happy with your progress?
  • It’s not about the business (It’s just an enabler) but the person in the business
