The QuickBooks team hit the road in September for Get Connected, covering four cities over a two week period, with the aim to enlighten the industry on the big compliance issues they are facing and discuss how the latest product developments are solving them. Spaces were limited with Sydney selling out in record time!
Attendees were welcomed by smiling staff, hot coffee and breakfast to kick the morning off, providing a great opportunity to ‘get connected’ with industry peers and make new acquaintances. Intuit’s Sales Director, Nick Horton started the jam-packed agenda with a session on the QuickBooks vision. He showed how smart connections, smart decisions and the latest technology can enable advisors to transform their client engagement.
It’s no secret that the Australian Tax Office’s Single Touch Payroll (STP) initiative is top of mind for the industry. Cloud evangelist, Di Lucas took the audience through what it all means to advisors, their clients and how they can get ahead of the game with QuickBooks compliant STP solution.
Other crowd favorites included, Kane Munro who talked about streamlining workflow in their practices, and Angie Karpouzis who finished the morning talking about the benefits of the ProAdvisor program.
Lunch was yet another great opportunity to connect with peers and get those much-needed answers to product tips designed to dramatically improve their practice efficiencies.
The afternoon saw Rhonddalynn Korolak deliver a captivating session on how to prepare and pitch value pricing. Rhonddalynn had the audience on the edge of their seats as she took them through her proven and practical 6 step process to transition clients from time based to value pricing.
This interactive session was a crowd favourite and focused on the challenges advisors face whilst providing a framework to succeed.
Overall, the Get connected event series provided an excellent opportunity for key partners and advisors to network with the broader QuickBooks team, ask key questions about product and services, while also learning new skills and technology.
Stay tuned for the next Get Connected series in 2019.
