Institute of Certified NZ Bookkeepers

We’re getting really excited about joining you all at #Bookkeepcon18 in just a few weeks.  It’s such a wonderful opportunity to connect with your peers, colleagues and Bookkeeping family, and a great chance to learn about the upcoming changes in the industry.

As you may already know, #Bookkeepcon is particularly close to my heart.  It’s designed to provide both educational and networking opportunities (sometimes along with a cheeky beverage or two), and I just love being there experiencing it with you all.

We’re really excited about this year’s theme of "Professionalism in a period of change".  We know that we are all in a period of change.  As our clients, business and technology evolves around us, we need to be able to adapt and maintain our professional standards and personal development.  Advisory is the future for many Bookkeepers.

We’re also really looking forward to presenting on Saturday 28th of July from 11.30am to 12.15pm.

Xerocon Brisbane

While we’re on the topic of conferences, and the huge benefits that follow from attending, let’s not forget that Xerocon Brisbane is in just 75 days (September 5th & 6th).  Our early bird offer of 20% off expires on the 30th of June, so make sure you don’t miss out!

You might be asking yourself why go back to Xerocon again?  Or if you haven’t been, then why start now?  Well for a start, I go every year because I really look forward to seeing all my Xero friends and family in this vibrant and exciting setting that fosters relationship growth.  That’s the best part - it’s a big family reunion, and a chance to network.  I met many of my bookkeeping friends at my first Xerocon, and we’ve spent the last 10 years growing our friendship.  Xerocon is an event where communities can form, friendships can develop and memories can be made.

I also go every year to hear about all the new announcements coming up, and I’m particularly excited to see Steve Vamos in action this year.  From the inspiring speakers, to the workshops, to partying with everyone on the final night, Xerocon is a conference like no other.  You get to find out about a lot of the latest industry insights, so that you can be prepared for what’s coming next.

So take the opportunity to jump the gun and be up-to-date with all the latest knowledge from industry experts, and pair it up with a chance to meet new like-minded professionals.  Don’t forget to bring comfy shoes and a big drink bottle, because this event will definitely keep you busy.  You can purchase your tickets here.

In the meantime however, I’m looking forward to seeing you all in Hamilton next month!
