The Bean Counters Richard Brooks

April 22, 2019

In this joint event with the University of Edinburgh, Richard Brooks will chart the accounting profession’s rise to global influence and provide insights into the underside of the profession, from underpinning global tax avoidance to corrupting world football.

Focussing in on the ‘Big Four’ that dominate the market Richard will also reveal how they have used their central role in the economy to sell management consultancy services that send billions in fees their way and ties them closer than ever to clients both in business and government.
