This week kicked off our first Australian Roadshow for 2012 and we’re staggered at how many people have registered to come along.

Over the next month the Australian team will travel all over this vast land to talk Xero with accountants and bookkeepers who are keen to find out more about Xero and where we’re headed.

There’s something for everyone. If you’re new to Xero, be sure to check out our Introduction session. We’re also running a Xero Essentials Workshop which aims to provide a solid foundation and get you up and running on Xero sooner.

If you’ve been with us for a while the Xero Partner Update is for you. We’ll be revealing key information about the soon to be released Xero Payroll for the very first time. This includes details around the integration timeline, product roadmap and a sneak peek of Xero Payroll in action.

In response to Partners asking for help moving clients from their legacy application, we’ll be offering some MYOB Conversion Workshops (big cities only).

All the sessions are free and you and your staff can come along to any or all of them.

Would you like to know when we’ll be in a town near you? Go here to find out more and hit Register for dates, venues and to let us know you’re coming.

Went to the Ballarat session on Tuesday – i thought I knew what Xero were planning for 2012 after following XeroCon in NZ – boy was I in for a pleasant surprise. Xero Australia weren’t joking when they told us that 2012 was going to be a big year.

Cannot wait to see what happens with WorkflowMax
Love the look of Xero Payroll
Some of the innovations being introduced over the next 6 months are so exciting

I wont spoil it for anyone who is going later. If you arent going, why the hell not? This year is your year to disrupt the way you have done things and actually build the Practice you want

I always view these events as essential to attend – to keep up to date with new features, planned features, ask all the ‘techie’ type questions, also network with other professionals.

The Ballarat Roadshow and Partner Update unfolded to a full house this week – and we were not disappointed.

Experience some Xero love for yourself – there has never been a better time to switch (or become a partner)

Well if you were thinking about attend #XeroRoadshow and ho hum about it. Think again. It’s one of those road points in your life that if you miss it you’ll kick yourself. There were big numbers in Geelong and Ballarat and in the capital cities sounds like it will be bigger then then ever.

In fact it is the event of the year .. (Perhaps till the Xero Conference.) Outstanding presentation and network opportunities. If your new to Xero or experienced you need to be there.

So if you’re not on board …. Just check your pulse …

This is the accountant in me talking 🙂 but surely Xero must think along the lines of 2,500+ registrations * add 3 organisations (minimum) = 7,500 new organisations? The Aussies are are on fire! Do yourself a favour and attend, you will not regret it!

Great Roadshow today. Something for everyone. Another wave of cool Add-on services such as @fathomhq. Wayne was on fire as usual. Stuart McLeod nailed Xero Payroll and Chris Ridd got everyone excited about the Xero Roadmap.

Looking forward to WorkflowMax integration and #xerocon in July 2012.

Thanks Xero team for another great roadshow in Sydney yesterday with a huge turnout.

A special thanks to Wayne for reminding us of his excellent advice, probably the most valuable presentation of the entire roadshow! My only regret is it took me too long to hear the message. Wayne, you have rocked my world!

I attended the Roadshow in Sydney yesterday, thinking I was just going to learn about another accounting package – how wrong was I!

Not only was it an entertaining & educational day, the talks were engaging, fun and inspirational. But most of all it showed me how my business is going to change over the coming year – really excited about making changes to how I manage my clients to both save them money & provide services above & beyond what we’re able to now.

Thanks so much guys! And yes, Wayne – you have truly rocked my world 🙂

I attended the Perth Roadshow Friday 17th Feb. Great presentation from a lively team. Enjoyed it immensely and can’t wait to “try” the product to see if it lives up to all the hype. I hope so … wanting to go into the next decade with a company with more innovation and forward thinking regarding company accounts.
Any program that gives Accounting a fresher, MORE REAL perspective will win hands down out there in the market place. All the Best, Xero … I hope you take the lead!

We attended the Roadshow in Coffs Harbour and can highly recommend it to anyone thinking of going.
The presenters were fantastic and the product is even better. The innovation that Xero has brought and continues to bring to the accounting world is amazing. It has inspired us to get on board and promote the product to our clients.
We have just signed on as Bronze partners and have no doubt we will make Silver in a couple of months. Anyone who isnt using Xero is kidding themselves.

WOW!! Xero has come so far in 8 months. WOW!! The best seminar I have ever been to – packed with so much information and ideas. WOW!! The presenters – the Accountancy World’s answer to the Wiggles – vibrant, enthusiastic, and you just want to get on board. I am still on a high. WOW!! You haven’t forgotten Canberra. Looking forward to the coming months.

Which Wiggles were the gang? Chris is a bit like Greg Wiggle, bit serious and gets the lead in the songs.

Which Wiggle was Wayne?

Priceless! We’re having outfits made.
