The Project We Care Dialogue
“The Project We Care Dialogue encourages cross-pollination of ideas. Prior to COVID-19, there was little difference between firms who went by the conventional or digital routes. However, COVID-19 has been a game-changer for businesses and it has helped to validate 3E Accounting’s digital transformation efforts. A Peer-to-Peer support network sharing best practices will help to encourage industry peers to drive adoption of progressive practices.” – 3E Accounting Founder Lawrence Chai.
