AAT Comment: It’s time to PowerUp your business skills and here’s why #AATPowerUp
An accountant or bookkeeper can be technically brilliant, but if they don’t have strong skills to communicate advice and offer solutions to their clients, they will have less impact than a less technical, but more rounded accountant.
Business skills are a must
All of these things require great communication skills. And they are an everyday necessity for bookkeepers and accountants, from students up to the most senior level.AAT Comment said:
Imagine being sent to a clients’ office to advise on where they should be making savings and suggesting they stop working with a supplier they’ve been using for years. Or having to tell a director in another department they must cut operating costs by 20%. Or even needing to persuade your own team to do things differently.
Over the next three months, the AATPowerUp series will be focusing on your Business Skills with tips and tricks to improve your communication.
