At QuickBooks, we wanted to provide you with some more insight into some of our speakers who will address the audience on various issues relating to the accountancy profession. This time, it’s the turn of David Beckett.

David is a TEDx Speech coach, presentation trainer and Pitch Coach. He’s helped over 120 Startups pitch to win over $40 million in investment and is the author of the book, Three Minute Presentation.

We’d like to thank David for speaking with us. He’ll be speaking at the Intuit QuickBooks theatre at Accountex, at various times on Wednesday 13th May. Find out more on the Accountex website.
