Tips for Turbulent Times is a guide on how to navigate your organisation in times of uncertainty and crisis.
Like many people I know, I’ve been in business through two recessions, two wars and one 9/11. Each has had varying sustained negative effects on the economy.
Many of my clients have seen much worse than I have.
In such times, I’ve observed certain ‘rules of thumb’ being employed to navigate such uncertainty with great effect and I share them with you here, in case they prove to be of use for you and your organisations too.
Martin Bissett is the founder of the Bissett Group of companies that provide practice and personal growth communities, content, and continuing education exclusively to the accounting and bookkeeping professions worldwide.
Previously he established a high six-figure consulting firm while serving as a keynote speaker with over 100 one-off and repeat engagements to his name, as well as becoming the most published author on his topics of specialism with 11 books including 1 bestseller.
Since 1998, he has played a major part in working with over 1800 accounting firms in over 40 countries. These projects have led to those firms acquiring over £500m of recurring fees before inflationary increases, referrals and upselling are factored in. He stopped keeping track of this number over 5 years ago.
Martin now advises both accounting practitioners and FinTech companies alike, at board level.
