Join Leanne Berry as she shares weekly bookkeeping insights while on the road with the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers.
This year is already off to an exciting start with the prospect of travel for business purposes back on the cards after a two-year hiatus.
I’m so excited to be out there and starting to reconnect with my peers in the bookkeeping industry as well as the business operators we work with. And what better opportunity to do so than at the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers’ Australian Bookkeepers Summit, which will take the form of a series of in-person, roadshow events, which kicked off in Hobart on 28 February.
The summit events create a unique opportunity for the bookkeeping community to come together and reconnect with their colleagues, partners, industry providers and members of the ICB team.
That’s right – real, in-person relationship building is back on the agenda in 2022.
Here’s a snapshot of my schedule over the coming weeks. I encourage any bookkeepers, advisors and BAS agents and event bookkeeping students and educators in my networks (and beyond!) to get along to one of the following:
|Hobart||Monday 28 February||Old Woolstore|
|Canberra||Thursday 3 March||Hyatt|
|Adelaide||Wednesday 9 March||Adelaide Convention Centre|
|Darwin||Friday 11 March||Darwin Hilton|
|Perth||Tuesday 15 March||Crown Burswood|
|Sydney||Thursday 17 March||Rosehill Racecourse|
|Brisbane||Tuesday 22 March||Pullman King George|
|Cairns||Thursday 24 March||Pullman International|
|Melbourne||Wednesday 30 & Thursday 31 March||Centrepiece Melbourne Park|
If you can’t make it, there’s even a live, virtual summit planned for 1 April (no fooling).
As the bookkeeping industry continues to grow alongside the various technologies we and our clients use, there’ll be heaps to talk about this year. That is, there’ll be plenty to discuss beyond the challenging times we’ve all faced throughout the pandemic.
Core topics include cybersecurity, going solo and employing staff, managing payroll and HR as well as how to navigate the world of contract bookkeeping.
Beyond that, I personally know many in our field are eager to discuss the shift to STP2, on which I will be available to answer questions from an MYOB perspective. As an added bonus for Team Purple, I’m very excited to share insights to the recently refreshed Partner Program.
For those who can’t attend the events in person, I’m also going to be penning a weekly column to appear right here on the MYOB blog, sharing snippets of insight and key discussion points from the summit as I travel from one end of the country to the other.
There is still time to register for both the face to face and virtual summit events, head to the ICB website.
