For the past couple of years, I have been writing as a guest blogger on the MYOB Pulse blog. The audience is small business owners and I typically write on topics that accountants could help their clients address. It occurred to me whilst working with a group of accountants on how to market, sell and deliver business advisory services last week that to supplement any original content you might be creating in your accounting firm, it could be a good idea to point your clients to one of the articles I have written on this blog every week or so. With that in mind, here is a link to the MYOB blog: http://myob.com.au/blog/author/colindunn/. Please feel free to share with your clients.
Speaking of the session I ran last week, the participants wound up taking an accreditation test to become some of the first 50 PANALITIX Accredited Business Advisors worldwide. We”re delighted with the response to PANALITIX, our cloud based business advisory software and nbso online casino those accountants who are using it are reporting excellent feedback from clients.
You may have seen on the news the devastating storm that ripped through Brisbane last Thursday evening. As we celebrated the end of day 1 of the accreditation course with a couple of drinks, golf ball sized hailstones pummelled our office and water started to stream through the ceiling, passing through a power board on its way and knocking out the power to the training rooms. As a result, I had to run the first session of day 2 on Friday morning out of our kitchen! It reinforced the value of always having a plan B and despite the somewhat cramped environment, we carried on regardless. Reminded me of a small seminar I ran in London once when we turned up at the hotel to discover that someone had forgotten to book the conference room, and it was in use by someone else. That time, I ran the event in the bar. Things will go wrong from time to time. Don”t let it worry you, activate plan B and do the best you can.
