While the rest of you spent the first couple of weeks in November choosing, and then adjusting to, a new president, we had the pleasure of hosting a number of managing partners and CEOs from leading accounting firms in our video studio here in New York City, as part of a series of interviews with top leaders in the profession that we’re partnering on with Phil Whitman and his consulting firm, Whitman Business Advisors.

Our studio, like all things in Manhattan, is much, much smaller than it looks on TV, but it was worth cramming in there with Phil and our video team and the extraordinarily hot lights to listen to these leaders discuss their careers and their thoughts on the profession. Both Accounting Today and Whitman Business Advisors will be sharing the insights we gleaned from those interviews, and from the many more like them that we’ll be conducting with other firm leaders in the future, throughout 2017 in a variety of platforms — our respective Web sites, these pages, podcasts and more — but for now, I want to share a preview of a few things that stood out for me.
