QuickBooks Connect San Jose 2017
I was invited to speak at QuickBooks connect, Intuit's annual conference which sees the worlds most recognizable celebrities give advice and inspiration to small businesses and accountants in attendance.
My role was to cover 3 key areas at the conference-
- Top 100 firm track presentation to 300 top100 accountants; Where I explained the evolution of technology and the impact on how people consume services. I also explained how we as large firms may use technology with clients in the future from Blockchain to Bitcoin and other alternative currencies.
- Panel discussion and host with the largest U.S firms; I hosted a panel discussion with 5 firms discussing challenges for large firms such as internal red tape, recruitment, agility and tech adoption.
- Innovation within accounting firms; I presented for over an hour on how firms need to innovate beyond just tech but to also focus on collaboration in order to boost efficiency and team happiness. I spoke about how accountants can adopt Agile methods when managing work within the firm and gave examples of how I implemented this with 5 firms of all sizes in London.
My sessions carried an NPS of +90 and I received over 900k impressions across Twitter, linkedin and Facebook.
