MYOB Partner Connect 2017 – Alice Springs
The MYOB Partner Connect Conference 2017 hosted international, state and a national event in a beautiful part of Australia, Alice Springs. There was a turnout of over 1000 plus partners both bookkeepers and accountants that attended these events collectively.
Alice Springs did not disappoint, it was such a buzz with a host of activities for partners to participate in over the 2 days. We went from cuddling snakes, to riding camels, to dancing with aboriginal children as well as networking with many partners, guest speakers, Add On partners and the ever supportive MYOB Team.
The theme this year was ‘Success is Personal’ and our inspirational keynote speakers certainly enlightened us on just that. Amanda spoke about The Magic of Mindfulness. Letting go your fears and embracing change by taking the opportunity to grow and develop not only in yourself but also in your business. Michael Crossland once again talking to partners about his life challenges and adversity and how he manages to overcome these by helping others though acts of kindness. He did spring some good news on us that he is expecting his first child! All smiles!
MYOB showcased some business insight tools like Power BI, MyAdvisor and My Prosperity. With Artificial Intelligence (AI) creating more and more automation and reducing the need for manual processing bookkeepers and accountants will be required more and more to make the shift towards advisory services. Such applications can certainly help you along the journey so you stay current and have the ability to offer them more in the process.
This year there was many Add On partners in attendance including Calxa, Ezycollect, Deputy, Receipt Bank, Abtrac, BI4Cloud, HR Central, Servicem8, Retail Express and the list goes on. Our warmest congratulations go to the Add On award winners Calxa whom won MYOB Partner Choice Award, Ezycollect for Fastest Growing Add On and Receipt Bank for Fastest Growing New Add On.
The Gala Dinner which was hosted at a quarry under the starry starry night sky being serenaded by a man playing the didgeridoo, live band and lots of Australiana food and wines. Some of our industry experts were recognised and awarded on the night including Partner of the Year Carlos Rodriguez from Qld, all our state winners including us – 2 Peas for Victoria.
2 Peas along with 6 other Partners of the Year were inducted into MYOB’s Hall of Fame which was such a humbling experience and accolade to achieve.
Alice Springs made MYOB Partner Connect 2017 all that little bit more special, be its’ majestic locations, caching up with like-minded partners, mixing with the family of MYOB and the inspirational guest speakers made for a fun couple of days topped with lots of education and business building ideas.
