'Sage urges Accountants to become indispensable to their clients' at Accountex

Jennifer Warawa, Former Accountant and EVP of Product Marketing at Sage shares with an audience of 1000 Accountants how success is becoming a 365 day-a-year strategic advisor

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Nov 16, 2016) - Sage, the market leader for integrated accounting, payroll and payment systems, will address how relevancy alone won't sustain a practice at Accountex USA. Accountants must become indispensable, especially in the new political and economic environment.

Jennifer Warawa, an ex-accountant and EVP of Product Marketing at Sage, will deliver her keynote speech at 4:30 p.m. PST today. She will discuss the indispensable link that must exist between start-up and scale-up businesses and their accountants. She will also explore the need to champion Accountants as the compass that will help entrepreneurs navigate any storm and help business builders to protect themselves.
