It’s the End of the Accounting World as We Know It

It's always fun when a new writer dips a toe in the turbulent Going Concern waters.

Last week we welcomed Chris Hooper to the fray. He's from Adelaide, South Australia, a partner at his firm and an accounting futurist. And like any good futurist, he's predicting the end of the world, the accounting world, in this case. But don't worry, it's not some Mad Max wasteland that you may have envisioned.

Chris' GC debut was met with a mix of scorn and accolades, which is a good sign, and he's mixing it up with peanut gallery (another good sign).

We're expecting more from him over the coming weeks and months, so go check out his first post and look for more from him soon.

Have a great week.
