Episode 78 – Scott Duda

May 10, 2017

Scott hits the fairways for better client connections


Scott Duda was given a choice by a partner when he first started in public accounting — either take Friday afternoons off to golf or you can stay in the office and work. Through that partner, Scott became a much better golfer and learned how to network, developing new relationships and strengthening current relationships. He also happens to cheer for all Ohio State sports, especially football. During our talk, it comes out that we were both rooting for our respective teams at the Notre Dame vs Ohio State football game in 1996!

In this episode, Scott and I talk about the best way to build both relationships and teams is to just be yourself. He talks about how it’s okay to not be an expert at everything but instead just know who to reach out to. Scott even tells his staff, “It’s okay to not know everything. As a matter of fact, trying to learn everything will slow your career down.”

Scott Duda is the Managing Partner of the Raleigh, NC office of Cherry Bekaert LLP.

He graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting.
