QuickBooks Connect goes global with London debut!
Chiks are keen to share details about the first ever QuickBooks Connect event in the UK. Judith Dugdale and other colleagues from Chiks will join small businesses across the country at the event. Having attended the US version in 2015, Judith is keen to encourage small businesses and the self-employed to attend the event. “I know travelling to an event in London means significant time out of busy schedules for business owners, but I know that if they attend the event they will get some fantastic advice on how to grow their business – well worth the registration fee and travel.”
Intuit QuickBooks, the world’s leading online accounting software, has announced its flagship conference, QuickBooks Connect, will take place in the UK for the first time on 7 March 2017 at Tobacco Dock, London. The leading small business event unites hundreds of diverse audience members under one roof to connect, learn and be inspired by big name speakers, unique experiences and compelling content. By attending small businesses and the self-employed receive the tailored information and advice they need to build, run and grow their business.
QuickBooks Connect offers the chance to hear from some of the UK’s most successful business personalities. Global businessman, Lord Alan Sugar, will give the inside track on how he’s grown his many companies into giants as well as offer advice on overcoming the hurdles faced by entrepreneurs. Mary Portas, one of the UK’s top retail voices, will take to the stage to discuss the importance of independent retail and the lessons she has learned from working with small businesses throughout the country. The event will also welcome Bruce Dickinson, the legendary Iron Maiden frontman and aviation entrepreneur as well as many other great speakers who will leave the audience feeling inspired.
“Small businesses and the self-employed are the backbone of the economy,” said Dominic Allon, Vice President and Managing Director, Intuit Europe. “We’ve created QuickBooks Connect to inspire, educate and connect a diverse audience that can network and learn from experts and each other. To have so many unique perspectives in one place is a special thing and we’re looking forward to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible for small businesses and accounting practices to help them not just survive, but thrive.”
