Who is behind it, and why

Improve Your Practice has been created by Steve Pipe, Mark Wickersham and AVN to celebrate 15 years of researching what works for accountants.

Based on 200 man-years of research

Improve Your Practice is based on 15 years of research by a team of up to 40 specialists, and led by two of the global profession’s true thought leaders. Those 15 years culminated in “AVNExcellence” – the world’s first research-based set of improvement standards for the accountancy profession. And those excellence standards provide the rigorously research-based “joined up thinking” behind everything else you get for free. There is simply nothing else like it anywhere in the world.

Will it work for you?

The principles behind the programme have already been proven to work for, and by, thousands of accountants. And everything has been specifically designed for UK accountants (although if you are based outside the UK there is still much that will help you). So if you are an ambitious UK accountant, we are 100% certain it will work for you. But the only way to know for sure is to try it yourself, isn’t it? And to do that simply spend 10 seconds registering. Remember, everything is 100% free. SPECIAL NOTE FOR AVN MEMBERS… You are welcome to register, but you really don’t need to because the resources here are a tiny fraction of the things you already have from AVN.
