Taking stock – Life’s a drag at BDO Stoy Hayward.

Employees at BDO Stoy Hayward have demonstrated that when it comes to cross- dressing, the accountancy profession is as liberal as any. Clad in a black, lacy top, red feather boa and stockings Martin Boden (by day a rather staid corporate service supervisor) displayed to all at BDO a never-before-seen talent for wearing a dress. Cocking a shy smile at the camera and clutching that feminine glass of white wine, s/he flirted with colleagues William Rawkins and Darren Brooks, and as shocking as this may be, it just goes to show that there’s room for all ways of life in accountancy. Our exclusive picture shows that the two men flanking their beautiful lady from the country’s sixth biggest accountancy firm do not fight shy of handling figures. Assuming his alter-ego of Martina, Boden became the BDO vamp at the firm’s Christmas party, raising £400 for cancer charities. Boden has claimed the whole thing began as a ‘dare’ but we know, as a great writer once said, that this was ‘money for nothing’.
