In every profession there are leaders and there are followers.
But where do the leaders go when they are looking to up their game? They should go to other leaders. Problem is, those other leaders may be equally busy and bogged down, and when conversations with professional peers do happen they lack structure & accountability. What leaders need is a forum to catalyze these types of conversations, and a seasoned facilitator to help keep things innovative & actionable.
Firm Forum is designed to be the ideal place for entrepreneurial accounting firms to connect, collaborate, compare notes, and push each other towards embodying their full potential. Through regular monthly meetings, members gain critical insight from their peers and compare key performance indicators to understand where they are falling short. These meetings are paired with a community Slack channel and ongoing technology training designed to help members create clear & actionable goals around their growth, business development, marketing, hiring, and much more.
What are you investing in?
