Choosing the Right Opportunities for your Business

with Tony Dormer, International Business Adviser


In this episode of the Business Beyond Borders podcast, Cynthia Dearin speaks to Tony Dormer, international business adviser and Director of Tricor ChewandDormers.

Originally from the UK, Tony migrated to Australia after being expelled from school at the age of 17. He started his own accounting firm from his kitchen table a few years later, and from there his career went from strength to strength.

He built his accounting practice, Kreston Dormers into an international powerhouse, before recently merging with one of the world’s major professional services group to form Tricor ChewandDormers.

This episode is particularly relevant to Australian services firms who are wondering how they can adapt their businesses to the digital revolution, and take advantage of Australia’s potential to become a services hub for Asia.
