Busy season is over, and you’re probably thinking, “Was it this hectic for everyone else?” Do you take the time to talk to your peers at other CPA firms to see how it went? What if you could talk to leaders in the profession who have deep ties to firms across the country? If you could ask them how to make your firm run more smoothly, grow different service lines that aren’t so dependent on tax season, or just brainstorm what the future of accounting firms look like, would you take that chance?
Here at CPA.com, we get to work with the profession’s thought leaders every day. One thing we value is bringing these great minds together to events so you have the opportunity to learn from them so you can propel your firm forward. Right now we’re in the planning stages for keynotes and panel sessions at the 2015 Digital CPA Conference (DCPA15), which is designed to help firms prosper from digital transformation and disruptive change in the profession. We’re proud our conference advisory panel is packed with heavyweights in the field of accounting technology – and it’s not just our opinion. MACPA Executive Director and CEO Tom Hood, Jim Bourke of WithumSmith+Brown, the AICPA’s Mark Koziel, ConvergenceCoaching co-founder Jennifer Wilson and our own strategic advisor Greg Lafollette, for example, have all been designated “2014 Thought Leaders” by CPA Practice Advisor, and they and our CEO Erik Asgeirsson are stalwarts on Accounting Today’s list of Top 100 Most Influential People in the profession.
What’s the common thread in this impressive group? They all believe that technology and innovative practices offer the best way for CPAs to offer enduring value to clients as trusted business advisers. And during receptions and session breaks at DCPA15, you won’t find a more approachable group to offer insight. Join the conversation, both at DCPA15 and throughout the year with these Twitter handles where you can get nuggets of their valuable insights. Take advantage of the knowledge this well versed group is so willing to share to help you make your firm stronger and workload less taxing (ok, bad pun).
