Welcome to The Modern Firm® podcast, hosted by Darren Root, Chief Strategist for Rightworks, founder of Rootworks (now Rightworks Academy) and an accounting firm owner for over 30 years, and John Mitchell, Culture and Workforce Advisor for Rightworks.

In this episode of The Modern Firm® podcast, Darren and John welcome TJ Lewis, Innovation Strategist for Rightworks and one of the creators of Spark—Rightworks’ new AI tool built for accountants. TJ has been out and about talking to firms about this new tool, and he reports on the types of tasks these firms are doing with the help of AI. Darren, John and TJ also discuss the advantages of using a separate, more secure AI like Spark, which doesn’t feed information into the larger ChatGPT model. Plus, they cover the reasons you should identify an AI champion for the firm ASAP—and they make an excellent case for why it’s so important not to wait for the future, but to embrace AI now.
