The intention is not only to work on a more structured basis; we will also develop new initiatives to enable third parties to benefit more effectively from BDO’s knowledge. This is, after all, something about which we have hitherto been too modest. BDO has built up a huge mountain of expertise and experience in key areas of “doing business” in which a great many entrepreneurs are often by definition not hugely interested: they want to do business and develop their company, and in doing so they sometimes pay less attention to formal structures and administrative ballast (in the broad sense of the word). We plan to encourage administrative managers, CFOs and Directors, each in their own area of interest, their daily conceptual framework and pattern of perceptions, to sit down with BDO’s specialists and engage in the constructive exchange of knowledge.
We have enshrined a number of explicit ambitions in BDO Belgium’s strategy: we want to grow profitably by convincing our existing and new clients of our approach, we want to attract the right people for this and give them the opportunity to develop in a young and modern working environment, we intend to make optimum use of our knowledge and experience for clients and colleagues alike, and we have to organise ourselves in such a way that we can implement our plans efficiently.
