- Management. Firms’ current managing partners look for topics in this category that include innovative practices, expansion, business development, leadership, and hiring and retaining top talent.
- Research. These courses cover topics of interest to a firm’s A&A and Tax staff including a focus on Wolters Kluwer research and learning solutions.
- Tax. This category includes technical tax topics including current developments, legislation, compliance, planning, research, tax practice management, processes and procedures, and workflow.
- Technology. Finally, this category includes topics of interest to firm IT personnel at all levels including processes, procedures, networking, data security, software application support, cloud computing and virtualization.
Things to think about
Although submitting your application is easy, you’ll need to consider a few key points. To begin with, you’ll need to decide which track your content fits in and who your intended audience is. This includes deciding what level of expertise attendees should have – either basic, intermediate or advanced. In addition to a catchy but descriptive title, you’ll need a course description that accurately describes your content as well as makes people want to attend. You’ll also want to think about the best format for your course – lecture or discussion pod. Lastly, consider how you will engage attendees.
The deadline for this year’s conference is by March 10, 2017. If selected, you will be contacted by May 31, 2017. Submit your speaker application today!
