Back in 2016, this piece was written by the guys over at CLIC. It created quite a stir. Which was great because the desire was always to be disruptive. And the reason for this reaction? It was the refreshing honesty and transparency; telling it the way it is. But what’s maybe even more remarkable is that everything written here still rings gloriously true. So, if you haven’t read it, here’s the original article in full with a brief update to conclude.
Check it out here: “Cooper Parry. Are they the rebels of accountancy?” Enjoy.
Fast-Forward to now
So what’s new? Well, Cooper Parry are still ripping up the rule book. They are hammering the humdrum and smashing the norm to smithereens. They’ve doubled in size. They’ve now shed the shackles of the PKF network (in Ade’s words, they were ‘too traditional and were slowing us down’). As well as opened offices in London and Bristol.
Their maverick streak also ensures that they are more famous for their CULTURE than ever – being named Europe’s Best Company to Work For in 2019 and The Sunday Times’ 8th Best Company to Work For in 2020 underlines the point. They have a fast-growing Tech arm too. Which is why Microsoft crowned Cooper Parry as their World No1 Dynamics partner.
You get the picture. At Cooper Parry, the restless energy gathers more momentum. Who knows what the next few years will bring? But one thing’s for sure, the Cooper Parry journey will be as rebellious as ever.
