Mark Lee is a chartered accountant who spends much of his time researching, writing and speaking about what accountants need to do to survive, evolve and thrive into the future. During his career in practice he worked for all sizes of practice and was a partner at two top firms. In 2006, Mark moved from practice work to focus on those elements of his career that he most enjoyed – speaking, writing and mentoring.
Now, as well as being a popular speaker at accounting conferences Mark is also a frequent blogger and contributor to various accounting journals, websites and Linkedin. His practice-focused articles for AccountingWeb, have been viewed over one million times. Shownotes:

Mark was once described by Accountancy Age magazine as “probably the most networked accountant in the UK”. He is now consistently identified as one of the most influential accountants online. He is very active on social media but often debunks the way this is over-hyped to accountants. Mark is also a proud Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association and Treasurer of The Magic Circle – which probably means he is the only truly magical speaker in the UK accountancy profession.
