Getting the Most Out of Your BTC Summit Experience

As we quickly approach our 2018 Boomer Technology Circles™ Summit, I thought it would be an awesome opportunity to highlight some of the best ways to get the most out of your time in Kansas City!

Get to know your agenda and attend all sessions

Our agendas for the upcoming BTC Summit meeting are dependent on what Circle you are attending. To accommodate us at the Intercontinental, half of the participants will have their individual day on Monday with the General Sessions on Tuesday, and the other half will have their individual day on Wednesday, again with the General Sessions on Tuesday. To find out more information regarding your particular Circle meeting and when you need to arrive and depart, please click on your BTC Summit meeting agenda below. Also, remember we have some great keynote speakers this year at Summit that you will not want to miss at the General Sessions on Tuesday, August 14th!





Lean Circle AGENDA -

Keynote speakers

Mark your calendars for our keynote sessions we have lined up for Tuesday, August 14th. Pete Smith, of SmithImpact will take us through his presentation on Dare to Matter where significant people create significant results. Our Innovation Roundtable session consisting of Gary Farrar, BKD, Kacee Johnson, and L. Gary Boomer, Boomer Consulting, Inc. will include conversations surrounding technologies and processes that can drive innovation in your firm, your lives and on an exponential scale.

Location, location, location

Our BTC Summit meeting will be held at the Intercontinental Kansas City at the Plaza for the third straight year! Located in the heart of the Country Club Plaza, the Intercontinental brings new and fresh meeting spaces and experiences to our members. Along with the location, participants are offered endless options for networking with their peers through dining and entertainment right across the street.

New faces in the crowd

To give you better access to more expertise at Boomer Consulting, our community model allows several of our consultants and staff to participate and facilitate at all our community meetings. No longer will your sessions be led by one main individual at BCI. Other consultants have stepped into facilitation roles within the BTC Summit and communities. With different backgrounds and knowledge in Leadership, Talent, Technology, Process and Growth, all of our consultants are ready to offer new perspectives and information to participants.

Connecting and networking

The BTC Summit has always given ample time and opportunity for participants to network with their peers along with the solution providers throughout the event. At Summit, we will have three different evening social event opportunities for networking. With member firms from across the country and more than 30 different solution providers on hand, the connection time between you, your peers and the sponsor firms that support you is endless.

Let’s get digital

Our digital materials will increase interaction and collaboration during the meeting while also placing all the information you need at your fingertips before the meeting. By visiting the mobile site, you will be able to familiarize yourself with the agenda, meeting materials, breakout sessions, sponsor showcases, and all of the things Summit has to offer.

Sponsor showcases

When reviewing the agenda, remember that we have several Sponsor Sessions during the Summit this year. Most of the sessions will occur on Tuesday, August 14 where you will hear relevant and timely topics from leading solution providers like Thomson Reuters, Wolters Kluwer, Sage and Netgain. Separate registration required to attend these sessions but the best part is that there is no additional fee for these sessions.

There is no “I” in team

Boomer Consulting has brought on many new additions when it comes to our staff. We welcomed Amanda Wilkie, Consultant and Jenna Bloomfield, Solutions Advisor. These amazing people have helped round out our already awesome team at Boomer Consulting, and they can’t wait to be a part of this year’s BTC Summit. If you have any questions, please ask a Boomer Team member. We are here to help!

Check out our new Accounting Innovation Center

While all of our BTC Summit events will take place at the Intercontinental, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention out new Accounting Innovation Center, which recently opened nearby. The AIC venue for professional development, conferences, corporate meetings, training sessions and focus groups.

The 4,300+ square feet can be divided up into five separate event spaces. A large conference space can seat roughly 60 people or divided into two 30-seat meeting rooms. A second conference room seats 10 to 12 people and is perfect for smaller leadershi
