James Caan to lead keynote talks at flagship accountant event
Intuit QuickBooks has announced its flagship conference, QuickBooks Connect, will take place in the UK for the first time on March 6 and 7, 2017 at Tobacco Dock, London. Day one will bring together hundreds of accountants to hear from speakers including entrepreneur and former investor on the BBC’s Dragon’s Den, James Caan. The dedicated ‘Accountant Day’ will also feature a range of immersive sessions designed to help accountants prepare for the future, grow their practice, save time and be a more valuable resource to their small business clients.
Sessions will include ‘Operationalising digital tax’ and ‘How to implement a pricing structure so your firm thrives.’ A panel discussion will delve into attracting and retaining the right talent.
The second day will offer the chance to collaborate with small businesses and to hear from some of the UK’s most successful business personalities. Global businessman, Lord Sugar, will give the inside track on how he’s grown his many companies into giants as well as offer advice on overcoming the hurdles faced by entrepreneurs. Mary Portas, one of the UK’s top retail voices, will take to the stage to discuss the importance of independent retail and the lessons she has learned from working with small businesses throughout the country. The event will also welcome Melissa Hemsley, who together with sister Jasmine, started a business to make healthy food fashionable.
Dominic Allon, Vice President and Managing Director, Intuit Europe, said: “We’ve created QuickBooks Connect to inspire, educate and connect a diverse audience that can network and learn from experts and each other. To have so many unique perspectives in one place is a special thing and we’re looking forward to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible for small businesses and accounting practices to help them not just survive, but thrive.”
