"It's easy to work in an international setup when we have what we have in BKR."

As members from two diverse firms, Walker Wayland Sydney and Ferax Treuhand AG, Zurich, came together for a challenging audit project within the mining sector, a remarkable cross-border collaboration unfolded.

Our joint efforts seamlessly integrated our expertise and dedication to excellence, setting a new standard in the industry. It's easy to work in an international setup when we have what we have in BKR. This partnership was fortified by our mutual commitment to the BKR style – the epitome of quality and reliability in the auditing realm.

The success of our collaboration was underscored by the established relationship we had nurtured over time. We had met each other at previous conferences and had a relationship which meant we could work efficiently together.

This rapport facilitated open communication and innovative problem-solving throughout the audit, ensuring a cohesive approach. Our combined strengths in financial analysis, compliance, and industry-specific insights allowed us to deliver a comprehensive audit report that not only met regulatory standards but also provided pivotal strategic insights for our client. This success story is a testament to the strength of synergy, expertise, and unwavering commitment to professional excellence following the BKR style.

“Without this BKR relationship, I would have lost the client”.

"As the partner at DMLO (Louisville, Kentucky), I had the privilege of collaborating with Iulia Lascau, the Managing Partner at Argus Audit (Bucharest, Romania). Together, we showcased the true spirit of BKR, leveraging our expertise and the global reach of the network to serve our clients with international operations. I met Iulia through BKR, and her international expertise combined with her local understanding made Argus Audit the perfect in-country provider for a US software firm venturing into Romania. Thanks to our partnership and customized services, we successfully met the unique needs of the client. Without this BKR relationship, I would have lost the client.

This partnership allowed us to expand our clientele and establish ourselves as go-to experts in international taxation for those entering the Romanian market. Through positive client experiences, we have solidified our reputation as trusted consultants devoted to our clients' success."

"My active engagement with BKR since the early days of the BKR-only Partner Institute has brought immeasurable benefits."

"Throughout my 17-years at Bland, my active engagement with BKR since the early days of the BKR-only Partner Institute has brought immeasurable benefits. This two-year program enabled me to establish professional connections and lifelong friendships. I have relied on these trusted friends for professional advice, discussing family affairs and even enjoying vacation time together. The unparalleled trust within our group has enhanced the value I derive from the leadership class and my association with BKR.

BKR’s leadership training marked a pivotal moment in my career, providing my first-ever formal training in leadership, despite already holding a leadership position. BKR's creation of this invaluable learning platform has significantly contributed to my development as a leader. Inspired by this experience, I initiated "reunion" leadership trainings and established an internal leadership development program at Bland. Today, our leadership development program, combined with the robust BKR program, benefits our entire firm, which has fostered continuous growth and excellence throughout our ranks."
