Posted By Tom Hood, Thursday, March 12, 2015

Our View on Sponsoring Partnerships

Posted By Administration, Thursday, March 05, 2015

We value and understand the resources our Sponsoring Partners provide to our profession. We work hard to develop partnerships that benefit our community members and our Sponsoring Partners. We are selective in whom we allow to participate and as a result, our members also view Sponsors as true partners and industry leading resources.  Yes, our Sponsoring Partners normally have an exhibit booth at our meetings, but they also have the opportunity to participate in the majority of the sessions and they often provide, and receive, great insight into the issues facing the profession.

In this video, Bill Flynn, of the startup company Ziptr, makes an "Ignite Presentation" to an April, 2013 meeting of one of our Boomer Technology Circles.™  An Ignite Presentation is a series of timed slides that provide an outline for an introduction of the company and its representatives while also making sure there’s a limit to marketing-speak.

Ziptr is a company that discontinued operations in September of 2013 but we’re sharing this video because Bill did a great job with his Ignite Presentation and since they’ve discontinued business, we won’t be perceived as favoring one of our current sponsors over a competitor. It’s just another example of how we try to create win-win situations for all of our participants!

What if You Don't Train Your People?

Posted By Tom Hood, Thursday, February 19, 2015

"We put it this way, we like to say in a period of rapid change and increasing complexity, the winners are going to be those people who can actually learn faster than the rate of change and faster than the competition.  And that applies to individuals as well as organizations."  Tom Hood, an excerpt from his presentation "Preparing for the Shift Change in Accounting," recorded August 19, 2014 at the 2014 Boomer Technology Circles™ Summit in Kansas City, MO.
