Last November we profiled the two day workshop ‘Sidekick Unwrapped’ created by Dave Jessep from djca and industry expert Viv Brownrigg from The Accountant’s RePublic. We were thrilled to see two of our strongest community leaders come together to provide such huge value for Xero partners.

The first Sidekick Unwrapped went off with a bang and a group of keen accountants came together for two full-on days of interactive sessions. Dave covered everything from sales and marketing to management and delivery, and gave attendees all the tools to implement his proven methods into their own firms. Complemented with a handful of guest speakers from the Xero add-on community and a tour through Xero HQ, Sidekick Unwrapped Wellington was an all round awesome event.

So we were pretty excited to hear that Dave and Viv are taking this show on the road, with new Sidekick Unwrapped workshops coming soon to both Auckland and London.

These two industry leaders are serious about helping accountants navigate the minefield of challenges being faced in the industry today. As discussed at Xerocon last month, the latest ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ report presented some rather sobering messages on accounting firms profit levels and productivity. Viv emphasises that accountants have to accept that change is inevitable and new skills, new practice structures and different behaviours will be the order of the day to survive and prosper.

We have no hesitation in recommending these incredible workshops. They are a unique opportunity to learn valuable information that can be applied immediately to grow your practice. So if you are Auckland or London based, now’s the time to register your interest.

Here’s the Sidekick Unwrapped details:

  • A complete classroom styled run-through of how to implement, develop, deliver and most importantly grow a successful modern practice.
  • Dave and Viv are big fans of collaboration and talk openly about their own journeys to date – this means you can implement their successes and learn from their mistakes.
  • Attendees get access to every internal template, process, proposal and strategy of djca’s that led to them experiencing over $1.4m of new growth in just two years – not to mention multiple Xero awards and hundreds of Xero clients too!
  • With a huge focus of sales and marketing, attendees will understand how to successfully implement these new skills to rapidly boost new client growth.

Sidekick Unwrapped will be hitting Auckland on the 25th and 26th of March. With just a few spaces left, register now to secure your spot.

Sidekick Unwrapped is currently scheduled in London for the end of May, with more details to be confirmed soon. To ensure you don’t miss out on a spot, get in touch with one of the djca team now.

Can highly recommend the 100’s of hours you will save with the ‘goodies’ on this course. Both Viv and Dave are incredibly generous, you just need to put your hand up.
(they both like wine so of course they are super cool)

@Mel – as one of our top Bookkeeper Partners Gayle can vouch that bookkeepers are more than welcome to attend. David and Viv are big advocates for the bookkeeper/accountant relationship.

Was thrilled to pop in and support your gig in Wellington Dave. You and Viv will deliver great value to the UK accountants and book-keepers who come along – and no doubt you’ll rope in guest appearances from some fab UK Xero Add-Ons. Nice work.
