At PSFI we work alongside the leaders of professional services firms to help them bring about transformational change, both personally and in their firms. Each month on the PSFI Podcast, we sit down with selected guests to have an in-depth conversation about the challenges facing leaders – be it in developing talent, building trusted client relationships or enhancing their firm’s performance. We aim to get to the heart of the issues and explore the pivotal aspects that make real and lasting improvements.
