Now in its fifth year, QuickBooks® Connect is bringing star power back to the main stage, with Alex Rodriguez and Mindy Kaling headlining inspiring main stage and breakout speakers in San Jose, Calif., on Nov. 6.
Since its inception in 2014, small business owners and self-employed professionals have attended QuickBooks Connect and received actionable insights, resources, tools and connections to grow their companies, as well as motivational and uplifting stories from speakers and peers.
What’s in it for you? You’ll not only get to connect with business experts under one roof, but also receive one-one-one mentoring sessions in marketing, design and general business advice. From key workplace tools to online branding, customer acquisition, leadership insights and additional revenue, leading voices from across the country will help business owners triumph and transcend, whether they are just starting out and have a team of one, or already experienced and have a team of many.
“QuickBooks Connect is one of our finest examples of how committed QuickBooks is to helping its entire ecosystem on a journey to success,” said Sasan Goodarzi, executive vice president and general manager, Small Business and Self Employed Group. “We look forward to welcoming thousands of accountants, small businesses, entrepreneurs, self-employed, developers and partners to this year’s event, which will bring inspiration from the main stage to main street and breakout sessions.”
