The New Norm

Is it just me or has time slowed down?  The new norm is that everything has changed.  I seem to live in a dream state expecting to wake up at any moment.  Unfortunately, the Covid-19 virus has other ideas and one thing is clear, these are unprecedented times as the world grapples with this new reality.

Know that we’re here for you, as always. Our team is fully functional and ready to deliver. Our consultants have the tools to work from home and can seamlessly continue to boost the capabilities and capacity of your accounting and finance team. As always, we are here to work collaboratively with you, to stand tall by your side so that when we come out the other side of this crisis we are ready to run together!

In anticipation of your needs during this time we have reached out to many of our trusted interim professionals to confirm their availability so if you need interim or project-based help right now, we are here. Or if you want to discuss your pending needs or those that may result from unyielding deadlines, or maybe you just want to know what other companies are doing right now, our team is ready to take your call.

Like you, I’ve received a multitude of emails over the last week and many have identified great resources that I thought would be invaluable to share (see below). If you see others that are worth reflecting upon please let us know.

Above all else please be safe and we look forward to returning to normality!
