I did a presentation for 60 of PWCs top QLD clients two months ago around the topic of micro-globalism and global-resourcing. It was well received and PWC purchased my book for all of them as well. One of PWCs partners spoke about their offshore teams and how they use them for back office accounting work. That's nothing unusual, top tier firms all have offices in other countries and use them for this purpose and also for providing advice to clients in those countries. But its just not something that most people think about - WHERE is each part of my work actually being done?
One of the clients in the room jokingly said “so I guess my audit will be charged cheaper to me this year right?”
