Whether you are "the boss" or you just have one - this conference is for you.This event is designed for accounting professionals (not only CPAs) who work within business and industry. We've made some exciting changes to the conference including some shorter sessions and more keynote speakers. Prepare to be inspired! Begin with a janitor who made it big and end with a 35 year-old MLB rookie who inspired a Disney movie. In between, choose from 30 sessions in the areas of financial management, general management, ethics, technology, tax, accounting, human resources and personal development.
