How did you end up working for an accountancy practice?
Following graduation from The University of Liverpool in 1995 I decided upon embarking on a career in gainful employment – accountancy seemed the obvious choice. Nearly two decades!! later I am glad I followed my instincts.
I escaped unscathed (some may disagree) when I fell out of a moving car on a busy town centre street. My embarrassment was compounded when the driver didn’t notice and the car didn’t stop. I had to chase the car up the street!
