Small businesses around the world now contribute more than 50 percent of global GDP. Collectively small businesses are a formidable force, driving growth in their local economies through the creation of employment, wealth and opportunity. Behind every small business are people who took a risk, decided to follow a dream, take on a legacy or simply provide a better life for their family.
And their influence reaches even further than their local economy. As technology breaks down borders, it means those same people can import and export products and services all over the world.
Your place in the change
Such a significant feat requires a strong network of ongoing support. At Xero, we see the power of this knowledge share play out day by day. Because, more than one million subscribers in more than 180 countries use our platform. And significantly, more than 89% of them are connected to an accountant or bookkeeper.
So are advisors at the heart of small business success? Absolutely. There’s no question.
What’s out there for you?
As an advisor you’re so central to the success of small businesses and the success of the economies they operate in (no pressure!). So how do you position yourself for what’s to come? How do you increase your influence, embrace smart new efficiencies, win more clients and ultimately design the future you want for you and the businesses you support?
And will you be prepared for the increase in small businesses that are looking further afield? Are you aware of the business tools to support their global aspirations?
Break down barriers at Xerocon 2017
We will explore these questions – and demonstrate the living, breathing power of connectivity – at Xerocon 2017, our beautiful and innovative accounting technology conference.
As Xerocon travels the world, you’re invited to join your fellow accountants, bookkeepers, ecosystem partners and industry leaders at an event that puts advisors at the centre of change, and shows how the world is open to small business.
