Xero Kicks Off Multi-City Tour Empowering Accounting Professionals to Modernize Their Practices With the Cloud

Xero Accelerate Discusses Future of Accounting While Providing Actionable Strategies and Plans to Grow and Scale

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 5, 2014) - Today, Xero, the global leader in online accounting software, announced that it's soon hitting the road for a 10-city tour that starts in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on August 19th. Xero Accelerate is series of local events designed to engage practitioners in the future of accounting and empower them with actionable strategies and plans to grow and profit using the cloud.

Xero Accelerate consists of two tracks: Meet Xero and the Xero Accelerate Workshop.

  • Meet Xero is for financial professionals who are not yet familiar with Xero's small business cloud accounting platform. The event is an opportunity to take part in a lively discussion on the future of accounting. Attendees will learn how to leverage the cloud to attract and successfully manage today's modern small business clients.

  • Xero Accelerate Workshop is a full-day course for current Xero Partners who want to learn exactly how to migrate to a modern cloud practice. Attendees will leave the session with an action plan and goals on how to build successful advisory services. The Xero Accelerate Workshop will be led by two Xero Platinum Partners: Steve Chaney, CPA, owner of Chaney and Associates and Bruce Phillips, CPA, CEO of Harshman Phillips and Company.

"The model behind Xero Accelerate is unique in that attendees leave with their own action plan and goals on how to grow their practice in the cloud," said Peter Karpas, Xero CEO of N.A. "We do this by creating a smaller, hands-on group of financial professionals who are at the same stage of building their businesses. This makes for a truly empowering experience in which attendees can ask tough questions and get the answers they need from other financial professionals who have already blazed the trail."
