autumn edition 2013

Once again we have collated an assortment of articles that we consider to be business informative, current and topical for our clients and friends.

Our lead story explores outsourcing as an opportunity. Outsourcing non-core activities has significantly grown in popularity, both for Australian in and international companies. This article provides our insights as to why outsourcing is becoming more common, as well as providing you with guidelines to ensure that you maximise your results.

Also in this edition, we spend five minutes with Paul Bitdorf, Managing Director of Nicheliving. This organisation is a multi-faceted and diverse property group which creates affordable living solutions across Western Australia. Nicheliving is a unique business and after we learnt about Paul’s passion for the affordable living market, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share it with you. I hope you enjoy the read.

During this month, we welcomed Bill Hermann to Australia. Bill is the former Managing Partner of Plante Moran, the 12th largest CPA firm in the USA, and a member of the Praxity Alliance. Bill’s record of achievements at Plante Moran is truly phenomenal and in 2012 the firm was named in FORTUNE magazine’s LIST OF “100 Best Companies to Work for” in the USA for the 15th consecutive year. He spent time with the William Buck firms sharing his insights and experiences on building and maintaining a sustainable professional services firm.

Whilst we always ensure that our information is accurate and well researched, advice tailored to your own situation should be obtained. Please contact your client Director of choice to discuss your specific circumstances.
