How Paula is building a better working world
Paula sees a better working world as something that permeates all our actions and decisions, our relationship with customers, our people and the community. Every decision to change is an opportunity for improvement and I help clients to have a different outlook towards accounting and not treat accounting as just a compliance obligation.
