As Practitioners’ struggle to stay afloat and grow business in this time of economic crisis our expert speaker Carla Manning ADCA CPA will highlight the tools and activities Practitioners’ can undertake to make their Practice the best in practice. Bringing her wealth of experience, skill and knowledge developed over the last 15 years working with a diverse range of clients across a variety of industry sectors Carla will address the following crucial issues:

–          Managing Cash-flow – Do you have an airtight cash management system in place? Are you collecting what you are owed? Are you effectively managing your cash-flow?

–          Reviewing Your Clients – When did you last step back and analyse your client base? Do you know who is making you money and who is costing you money?

–          Strategic Planning – What do we do? Who do we do it for? How do we grow, succeed, excel? Key questions you need to ask yourself when it comes to strategic planning.

–          Being Proactive with Clients – Do you proactively bring business ideas to your clients? Are you missing cross-selling opportunities with existing clients?

–          Paperless Office – Sick of paper cuts? Do you aim for a paperless office? What alternatives to paper are available?
