As we work with our clients, do they see us as forward thinking?  Are the meetings with us inspiring and engaging to help them use the accounting information they are receiving to make well informed business decisions?  Are we leveraging technology to provide our clients the cutting edge services that will help us stand out as the premier accounting service?

Listen as Twyla and Roger discuss these questions and so much more as they consider the things that can be offered to provide quality accounting services.
