Paul Dunn is the Founder and Founding Chairman of Results Accountants’ Systems (RAS), the Accountants' Boot Camp process and the Results Accountants’ Network.
He first started working with the Accountancy Profession in 1970 when he was one of just ten people in the Australian start up of Hewlett Packard. For longer than he cares to remember, Paul's held the belief that the Accounting Profession has lost much ground — that the Accountant really ought to be a client's prime business advisor. So since 1990 he's pursued a very special dream.
That dream culminated with the formation of Results Accountants' Systems offices around the world, the development of the Accountants' Boot Camp process, the development of powerful systems to help Accountants around the world "re-engineer" their practices and the development of the Results Accountants’ Network. The company now serves 3000 practices as part of that worldwide network..
Paul speaks with passion, energy, commitment and humor. He’s a best-selling author and regular contributor to Professional Journals around the world. He has a weekly column in the leading business magazine in his home country, Australia. He develops innovative training programs for Accountants and their clients and his video-based programs are all best-sellers in their categories.
Paul is widely recognized as a person who has done so much to move the profession forward in the past decade.
Paul is based in Sanctuary Cove in Queensland, Australia and in Provence, France but spends two thirds of his time away. He clocks up an average of 200,000 miles in the air each year (and his baggage does nearly 350,000 miles!)
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
