I am thrilled that my mentor and friend, Paul Dunn, won a most prestigious award on Thursday night in the UK. It was the Inaugural AccountingWeb ‘Outstanding Contribution to the Profession’ award. Paul has done more for the Accounting profession than anyone I know on the planet. I’ve known Paul for 28 years now. His contribution continues as he sits on my Board of Advisers as well as a shareholder in my software company – PANALITIX. Congratulations Paul. He couldn’t make it to personally accept his award so he sent this acceptance speech.
