Finest Focus – Ben Hall

Who are you are what do you do?

I’m an Audit Manager at RSM UK; a leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services to middle market leaders, globally.

In the UK we have approximately 3,650 partners and staff, with access to over 48,000 people in over 120 countries across the RSM network. I have the privilege of being based in the Stoke on Trent office but my role is certainly much wider reaching on a daily basis, as we continue to work closely (albeit remotely for now) with colleagues, whether they are based in the North West Region or perhaps as far away as China.

As an Audit Manager at RSM I am responsible for overseeing and project managing the end to end audit process and ensuring that we provide the highest level of service to our clients. However most importantly I aim to add value and insight to clients, as well as ensuring that they maintain compliance. I have a passion for working with global businesses and relish the challenge of project managing global audits which involve multiple overseas members of the RSM network to provide a global audit solution.

I am also fortunate enough to be the Audit Group Manager for the Stoke office, which has given me the opportunity to be involved with recruitment, wider resource planning and further commercial aspects to increase my business acumen, which further increases my ability to hold meaningful conversations with clients about their business.

Why do you do it?

I thrive off the variety within my role. Within a typical week I might be interviewing for new team members, coaching and developing junior members of the team before moving on to preparing reports for a meeting with one of my exciting clients. I also have a passion for delivering great service to clients and spending time getting to know them, as well as their business.

Why is being a member of Finest important to you?

Future Finest has allowed me to build lasting professional relationships within the region, across a diverse range of disciplines and backgrounds that is not usually available in other formats. Future Finest facilitates many great events that expand your local network, contribute to your continuing professional development and allow you to enjoy yourself – all at the same time!

I would always recommend that anyone considering a Future Finest event should attend, I can assure you that whilst it might seem daunting at first, there is always a welcoming atmosphere and someone new to meet.

Why are you a member of the Steering Group?

Having attended Future Finest events prior to joining the steering committee, I understood the importance of what was being achieved by Future Finest in the local professional community. There are very few other platforms where young professionals can network and develop in this manner and I enjoy being involved in making suggestions for future events that may continue to attract new members.
