AccountingWEB US virtual conference kicks off

AccountingWEB.com, Sift Media's US accounting website, has kicked off a virtual conference featuring recognised speakers from the profession streaming live via the internet.

The free-to-attend event, which you can watch from the comfort of your home or office, will allow you to participate in live discussions on tax, accounting and auditing, practice development, technology and marketing.

The AICPA’s Jason Deshayes will share his views on the state of the accounting profession; Tony Batman, chief executive of 1st Global, will speak about retirement tools to defuse the demographic time bomb; and financial planning professional David Shill will discuss how to help baby boomer clients who haven't properly prepared for retirement.

PracticeWEB team head and “father of practice management” Mark Lloydbottom will also teach you how to turn existing client engagements into opportunities to make more money.

Tom Hood, the chief executive of the Maryland Association of CPAs, is joined by association members from key generational groups as they discuss the value of professional membership and how different generations gain value from membership in professional organisations.
