Thanks for tuning into Get Connected Edition Six !
Hi everyone, I am very pleased to launch my video channel, Get Connected with James !!! The place to go to keep you in touch with everything thats happening in small business, accounting & tech! View The YouTube Channel
After 6 years of face to face lecturing in my industry partner role at Macquarie Uni, last night was a new experience as I recorded my first online lecture. Whilst I have done plenty of online webinars before, in this instance it was a bit strange not having a lecture theatre full of undergrads in front of me either listening, falling asleep or chatting away at the back ! And nobody was online to laugh at my accountant jokes !!
It was also a welcome break from what has been happening in the business world. It could have been easy to say that at this time I am too busy but just like my commitments to my clients, my team at Xref and to my colleagues, I am committed to ensuring the next generation of our industry is given every opportunity to be ready for what lies ahead as they start their career
And so if it is of any interest, please feel free to watch the recording of my lecture, Accountants in Finance and Commercial Organisations (Fast Growth Start Ups)
It took me back to the time that I started the “Get Connected” series in Jan 2016 ! (And yes, I used that name before Quickbooks did ! https://jamessolomons.com/?s=get+connected
I remember the moment I became head of accounting at Xero in 2014; it was pretty life changing to be honest. When Chris Ridd made that announcement on the stage of Xerocon, it was the start of something incredible. And when I look back on the past three years at Xero, some interesting numbers stand out.
