Last November at the inaugural Accountex exhibition in London, I was pleased to finally bump into a bit of hero of mine, Paul Dunn.
Paul has been banging the drum for change and innovation in the global accountancy profession for decades and so therefore it’s no surprise that Xero and Paul quickly formed a mutual appreciation society and many of the concepts and ideas that Paul shared in his 2003 book, “The Firm of The Future” are being adopted by forward thinking firms today.
After the amazing reception Paul received from his audience of a couple of hundred accountants at his keynote in November, I got chatting with Paul about the prospect of Xero sponsoring some extra events in the UK.
And so we did.
Later this month (April 23rd, 24th & 25th) Xero is hosting three half-day Paul Dunn keynotes in London, Birmingham and Manchester. I should say that while Xero is sponsoring these free events, aside from a brief intro from us these are not Xero brainwashing events per se.
Here’s what Paul has to say about them.
Past feedback points to the fact that if you’re an accountant, these events will probably be among the best half-day’s investment of your time you’ll find in 2013.
Attendance is free and places are limited, so book a place for your team here today.
