Real Reasons from Real Business Owners: Attending QuickBooks Connect

2 min read

Attention all business owners! QuickBooks® Connect will celebrate its 5th year as a major business and networking event. If you’re a business owner that believes in taking action and making things happen, then this event is perfect for you. The conference will be held Nov. 6, 2018, in San Jose, Calif.

Each year, featured speakers are scheduled to speak at QuickBooks Connect to share their insight with other entrepreneurial spirits attending the conference. Informational sessions and prime networking opportunities will also take place, creating the perfect environment for business owners looking to gain industry insight on perfecting work processes and furthering their success.

If you’re still wondering whether this is the right event for you, see what Karen Cavanagh, owner of KLC Marketing Group, had to say about her experience when she  attended QuickBooks Connect 2016:

“I’ve attended QuickBooks Connect for the past three years and always learn something new. Whether it’s a marketing, HR or accounting session, I feel like I’ve been woken up and leave each session saying “wow!” The event has changed how I run my business and how I help my customers.”

“As a marketing automation expert, I need to know about the latest technologies and trends. Last year, I learned about a new app that can improve my customers’ reviews rankings. I also learned how to use the financial underpinnings of QuickBooks to create a growth model for my business. I’ve used the data to help create a profitable marketing and hiring plan.”

“The QuickBooks Connect event has helped me think more broadly, network with other small business owners and focus on the issues that impact my business. I will definitely be attending again this year.”

Here are just a few of the keynote speakers attending QuickBooks Connect this year:

Dylan Lauren, CEO & founder of Dylan’s Candy Bar: Creator of the world’s largest confectionery emporium, Dylan’s Candy Bar, Dylan has merged art, fashion and pop culture with candy. Hear what Dylan has learned during her journey and how to stay relevant in a competitive marketplace.

Vinh Giang, entrepreneur & master showman: Winner of Australia’s Top Young Entrepreneur award, Vinh has built a hugely successful online business, 52kards, teaching magic to 800,000 students worldwide. He hopes to empower entrepreneurs to find solutions that set success in motion.

Alongside Karen, 97 percent of attendees said they left last year’s conference with knowledge that could be immediately applied to their businesses. Reserve your spot!
