Top ten business myths

Register for “Top ten business myths” webcast

  • Description: This session is dedicated to the possibility that many myths exist about business. Thinking about these myths is hard because it requires us to examine some of our most deeply held beliefs. In this session, you’ll learn that it’s better to rid ourselves of these myths by dismissing them or at least think differently about them.
  • When: Tuesday, January 13, 2015, 1 – 2:30 p.m. ET (10 – 11:30 a.m. PT)
  • CPE/CPD Credits: 1
  • Instructor: Ed Kless (@EdKless)
  • Cost: FREE

Introduction to value pricing

Register for “Introduction to value pricing” webcast

  • Description: This session is dedicated to the possibility that pricing should be developed in a business as a core competency. Creating a pricing strategy is hard work and not for everyone. It requires us to think differently than we have in the past. We must expand our view of pricing from something that is done tactically to land a customer to a broader more strategic concept. This session will help you open a dialogue on pricing strategy. After attending this course you will understand:
    • How pricing can be a strategy
    • Why pricing is so important
    • The seven T’s in developing choices
    • What behavioral economics is teaching us about pricing
  • When: Friday, January 16, 2015, 1 – 2 p.m. ET (10 – 11 a.m. PT)
  • CPE/CPD Credits: 1
  • Instructor: Ed Kless (@EdKless)
  • Cost: $5

Building an adaptive (and successful!) culture in your firm

Adrian-Simmons-Google-Hangout-recording-screen-capture-wpWe recently had the chance to chat via Google Hangout with Adrian Simmons (@AdrianGSimmons), Chief Creative Designer at David G. Simmons, CPA, about building an adaptive culture in your firm. Change can be intimidating, especially when you’ve been in practice for a while, but Adrian shared why he believes that changing adaptively is crucial to your success as an accounting professional.

You can view the recorded Google Hangout on demand HERE.

Adrian has taken the time to build a creative, adaptive culture in his firm, with the aim of remaining agile with new developments in technology, requirements, and client needs. It hasn’t always been easy to accomplish, but his firm has already begun to see great results. A few key takeaways from the session include:

  • Building an adaptive culture is an investment. You may not see results overnight, but it will make all the difference in the world in the long run.
  • Set time in your schedule specifically for creativity. If you need to block off one morning, or even one full day per week, do it.
  • You can’t drink from the fire hose, but you can pick one stream. Approach change this way and it will be less overwhelming.

Adrian had plenty more wisdom to share, so be sure to check out the full recording. And keep the conversation going on Google+ by posting your thoughts, comments, and questions on the event page.
