This year, Account Aspects representative, Leigh Cummings attended Xerocon Brisbane 2018.
Xerocon is always a highlight on Account Aspects calendar for so many reasons. This year the theme was #human and had over 3,700 Bookkeepers and Accountants at Xerocon Brisbane 2018. The event opened with Tom Thum, a Brisbane based beatbox artist, demonstrating the power of the human voice. It was spectacular! Xero knows how to put on an event with a makeshift pool party, a basket ball court, unlimited coffee and a round stage. They even delivered there breakout sessions silent disco style.
Xerocon Brisbane 2018 was Account Aspects 4th Xerocon. What is it that keeps us going back to Xerocon?
Meeting up with Bookkeepers and Accountants
Our clients rely on us to help develop solutions to a process in their business. At times we turn to our professional friends for ideas on how they helps solve a problem. Sharing a drink and conversations with other Bookkeepers and Accountants strengthens our relationships and networks. It also enhances collaboration with people coming together rather than a sense of competition.
Xerocon attracts keynote speakers that leave their impression. This year we heard Gill Hicks heroine story of survive and Mark Manson’s subtle art of not giving and f. There are so many lessons to be learnt and new ways of looking at a situation. Account Aspects often find themselves reminiscing about what they heard at Xerocon and using the information to evolve our business.
