‘In a world where there are more questions than answers, I strongly believe that there has never been a more opportune time to be in a leadership role within the professional services sector. Teams and clients alike are looking for leaders/advisors to deliver and take ownership of the journey ahead. I have had the fortune to know and work with Phil and Whitman Business Advisors over the last few years, and am excited to now be part of their team in supporting progressive firms, both in the US and UK, to lead the profession to a new way of work and business. These are undeniably challenging times, but significant opportunities await for leaders, their firms and clients with the right mindset and desire to own their journey ahead’. ~ James Hickey
