Having to join Peer advisory groups is one of the best recommendations you get as these groups provide unique insights and support for your business growth. Additionally, it can assist you in developing your leadership abilities because some of your peers are expert leaders in their respective fields and will impart knowledge and insight to you that isn’t found in business books.
In this episode, Kit welcomes Todd Russell, a partner at RSM, a full-service professional services company that offers tax audit consulting and M&A-related services to the middle market. Kit and Todd talk about the value of participating in peer advisory groups and the advantages of working with RSM as a business partner. Todd also highlights RSM’s unique characteristics and its place in the middle market environment.
