Last week QuickBooks hosted their annual QuickBooks Connect event, held in
London at Old Billingsgate Market, an event for Bookkeepers and Accountants. Starting
Monday afternoon allowed me a couple of hours in the office before jumping on the train
to head to the city. An interesting afternoon speech aimed at accountants all about
Making Tax Digital, followed by a brief drinks reception before retiring to my hotel to
enjoy an evening of childfree silence!

The main day featured a mixture of keynote speakers and breakout sessions, with a wide
variety of subjects, thankfully I’d studied the agenda before leaving so I’d got my day
all planned. One of the highlights was Dr
Brian Cox
, although not directly linked to bookkeeping and accountancy was a
highly motivating speech, giving me lots to think about. Other highlights including the
delicious food on offer throughout the day and getting lots of swag from the various
exhibitors around!

One of the only disappointments of the day was how an accountant managed to alienate any
bookkeepers within the audience of his speech within the first five minutes, seemingly
forgetting that a good set of books can make an accountant’s job so much easier and
rubbishing the work we do! Think someone may have not thought about their audience

A highly valuable day overall, seeing lots of new innovative software solutions coming up
from QuickBooks and their partners. Looking forward to next year’s event already!
