ABOUT TNG GLOBAL ... celebrating 25 years!
TNG Global is an online community of independent accountants, mostly CPA's and Chartered Accountants, who come together to share information and experiences to build a better Practice. While no longer in public practice, the grass roots of TNG stem from a traditional accounting firm, that did some very innovative things.
True North Group (TNG) was established in 1990 by Marc Bruce, an Australian Chartered Accountant for over 25 years, together with his father Ian Bruce. Based in Sydney, the firm grew rapidly reaching the Top 50 and was ranked #1 fastest growing accounting firm by Business Review Weekly in the late 90's. Marc pursued a multi-disciplinary practice (MDP) approach, with innovative tools and systems developed in-house. The firm grew internationally.
Keen to learn from TNG's success, other firms made approaches. A training program was born for progressive accountants to create and/or strengthen their Business Consulting division. The Business Advisor Training Program was branded, Focus Systems & Support, and its flagship, the Strategic Planning module.
Focus Systems & Support
Over the past 18 years, the Focus Business Advisor program has been adopted by hundreds of accounting firms across 8 countries including Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom. Each of these firms have undertaken 12 months 'hands-on' intensive training. While the programs are designed for small-medium sized firms just getting started with Consulting, leading firms like PKF, Crowe Horwath and BDO have also benefited from the program.
The Focus training program is now available online for TNG members.
