What is this years keynote event?
Following the feedback we received from last years event we have put together what we hope will be the biggest and most well received keynote event to date!
This years keynote event will be delivered by James McDaniels who is a specialist in the area of accounting practice sales and purchases. During the course of McDaniel’s 2 hour keynote presentation, attendees will discover a number of issues that arise in this niche yet growing sector. Areas covered will include, how to finance the acquisition of an accounting practice, major milestones in the accounting practice Sales process, the most common issues effecting mergers of accounting practices, and how to overcome the most common pitfalls during a sale.
A large element of the keynote event will also look at the lessons that can be taken from the accounting practice sales process in other countries, in particular the American practice sales market, where McDaniel’s has hands on experience in a dozen multimillion dollar deals.
