Future of Accounting Live Event: July 2015

This past Thursday, I hosted my monthly Future of Accounting event with my co-organizer, Kurt Kunselman, founder of Accounting Suite.

Future of Accounting is a group of the industry's leading accountants and software developers. It was our largest event to date with nearly 50 RSVPs. We held it at Xero's fabulous San Francisco office. The Xero team was an awesome host and sponsored the food and libations.

Some of those in attendance were Vik Agrawal, founder of Expense Path. Susan Henderson, independent financial professional, Soo Somerset, founder of Somerset Consulting, Jeff Ferber and Paul Baumgart, founders of What We Order, Jay Fife CEO of Fuse Phase. From Xero, we had Arthur Garcia, Regional Sales Director and Senior Account Managers Justing Hobbs and Joel Lacayo.

 

 

Hobbs led a brief presentation about Xero introducing one of their latest features- Smart Lists. Smart Lists lets you do an advanced search of all existing customers, using the accounting platform as a search engine.  The presentation was followed by a brief Q&A from the attendees.

The night was full of laughter, good times and great discussions about the future of the accounting industry. We look forward to seeing everyone at our next mixer on Wednesday, August 20.
