3 FINDING A PARTNER When working with an audit and consulting firm, you will disclose your confidential business details, open the doors of your firm, speak of figures and performance, reveal your strategies and ambitions and sometimes your own personal preoccupations. Your Partner must be trustworthy. You will ask your Partner to act swiftly, to give advice which is in your best interest, sometimes at short notice, regarding situations which are complex. Your Partner must be available. And you will require even more: specific solutions adapted to your own particular situation, with a new focus. Your Partner must be competent with multidisciplinary skills. Finally, you wish to establish a steady partnership, a pleasant relationship, in an open-mind and straightforward manner. Your Partner must be easily accessible. SFG THIS PARTNER OF CHOICE
