We spoke to Will Farnell, founder of Farnell Clarke about winning the well deserved Medium Firm of the Year Award, and how it will impact their firm henceforth.
How does it feel to win Medium Firm of the Year?
It feels great! Receiving such an award at this level is huge recognition for our all team. They’ve worked extremely hard over the past 18 months so it’s brilliant to see that those efforts have been acknowledged within the industry. It is a fantastic boost for the firm.
How will winning the 2019 Accounting Excellence Award for Medium Firm impact your firm?
Winning this award will give huge confidence to our team – their work is award-winning! For our clients, we hope this reinforces the message that we are dedicated to working with them to provide them with the best experience. Farnell Clarke as a firm continues to grow significantly, but client experience has always been at heart of our mission. For potential new clients looking for a new accountant, we know that this award will help to set us apart from others. We’re excited to see what opportunities arise from our win.
What advice would you give to anyone entering the awards, or thinking of entering the awards next year?
Do it! It provides the perfect opportunity to stop and reflect on your achievements. It’s a great morale booster when your team is announced as a finalist, or even better… a winner! It’s not always easy to shout about how good you are as a firm but entering these awards take you out of your comfort zone to celebrate all your successes and everything you’ve been working so hard for.
What does accounting excellence mean to you?
For us it is about just that, providing an excellent service to our clients and an excellent workplace for our staff. We are proud of what we have achieved, and are extremely ambitious for the future. The greatest reward from this is acknowledgement from experts in our industry that we are delivering accounting excellence!
