What conferences are you attending this year to connect, learn, and grow?
No matter what industry you’re operating in, getting out of your daily routine to gain a fresh perspective by going to a professional conference can pay big dividends. Especially when it delivers opportunities to make face-to-face connections with colleagues and customers, learn best practices and take new technologies for a test drive.
When it comes to choosing where to invest your professional development time and budget, there are a lot of options.
So I put together a list of the top conferences I recommend entrepreneurs, bookkeepers, and accounting professionals attend because of their high ROI on connection, education, and inspiration.
I based my top picks on the audience each conference brings together, immersive learning experiences offered and the leadership speakers and trainers on the program.
Here’s my list of the top conferences to attend this year:
IPBC’s IGNITE Conference is the premier live educational and networking event in Canada for business advisors offering bookkeeping and accounting products and services. The benefits include learning sessions on tax, software, technology, and best business practices that will elevate your knowledge.
Quickbooks Connect brings together thousands of entrepreneurs, small business owners, accountants, and developers for three days packed with business strategy and training you can implement to advance your success.
Sage Sessions is a single-day event held in cities across North America including Vancouver, BC in October 2018. This event is designed to deliver learning, training and networking experience that will inspire you to drive your business forward. Focused on the Sage product portfolio and roadmaps, Sage Sessions provide Sage customers, partners, and accountants with actionable tools and insightful knowledge.
