On Wednesday 15 October David Allen and I attended the 16th annual 2020 Conference at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole. The conference is aimed at keeping accountants up-to-date with all the latest industry developments and also looks at improvements that could be made in practices up and down the country.
This year’s keynote speaker was Paul Dunn, Senior Fellow in one of the world’s leading think tanks and holder of a Lifetime Service Award to the accounting profession in the UK. We really enjoyed his speech, it was so passionate and engaging and highlighted how central accountants are to their clients' lives and businesses.
Other speakers from the day included Chris Frederiksen, Martin Bissett and Gordon Gilchrist who all covered a range of topics including how to build a modern firm, growing your revenue base and the best marketing initiatives from around the world.
We had a fantastic day and found the conference really informative and have come away with number of exciting ideas to share within our business. The 2020 Conference is a fantastic event in the accountancy calendar and we are already looking forward to next year!
