With a lot happened in the world over the past year; increased terrorism, the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union and a new government administration in the US, there’s been no shortage of change, a major consequence of which is economic uncertainty.
The increasing pace of change has a negative influence on our ability to predict events, a situation only exacerbated by greater digitisation. PwC is not just impacted by such events, we believe we have a substantial role to play in supporting businesses as they seek to deal with change, improve their performance and assure their place in the future.
Watch what Axel Smits, Chairman of PwC Belgium, has to say about the firm’s activities from a strategic perspective and the challenges he believes we face in a continually evolving and unpredictable world.
Despite market uncertainty, we were able to realise strong growth over the year. Our net revenues increased by 10% from 263.1 million euros in FY16 to 288.1 million euros this year.
Building on our commitment to serve clients from Strategy through Execution, our people worked more across lines of service to develop and deliver more holistic services, especially calling on emerging technologies to support the digital transformation of client businesses.
We also progressed with the digital transformation of our own firm, introducing technologies to allow people to collaborate better and improve the way in which we deliver services to clients.
