Practice everyday innovation

Practice Management
Everyone tells CPAs they aren’t innovative. That’s just not true. Accountants use innovation every day when coming up with unique ways to help their clients. You need to learn how to tap this innovative side to make innovation part of your firm’s DNA. By moving away from safe, tried and tested processes, you can build a culture that supports ongoing, consistent opportunities for innovation. In this session, you’ll learn what you need to do to radically change your business and hear what forms of every day innovation are happening across the industry.
