Take 5 has shown the team at PKF that there are a lot of things that we may not know about someone, even if we work with them everyday! So we took 5 minutes to chat with our recently appointed Partner, Daniel Clements, to get to know a bit about him.

Q. How did you keep busy during lockdown, other than work?

I’m a gaming nerd at heart. Playing Call of Duty online with a group of my mates prevented many hours of potential boredom. Going for daily walks with my two mini dachshunds also helped to break up the day.

Q. What was your first ever job?

I was a donut king boy during my high school and university years. You would think I would hate the sight of a donut but I still can’t get enough of them.

Q. Do you have a favourite book that you have read and why is it your favourite?

Harry Potter. It was my favourite as a child and I still find the series thoroughly entertaining. So much so, that every night I listen to the soothing tones of Stephen Fry’s Harry Potter audiobook to put me to sleep.

Q. What originally got you interested in your current career?

I had no idea what career I wanted in Highschool. I completed an accounting course as part of my HSC and I actually enjoyed it (weird I know) so it just made sense to pursue a career in the field after that.

Q. Do you have a career highlight so far?

Being accepted into the Partnership at PKF would have to be the highlight to date. I’ve worked hard to get to where I am today and I’m very appreciative of the support, belief and encouragement that I have received from PKF over the years.
