Location/Time: | 7:30 - 8:30 AM

Presenter: Bill Gerber, AccountingDepartment.com, Co-Founder

As mainstream as internal departments, outsourced accounting departments are so much more than their historical stereotypes—and businesses that are moving to this model routinely find they are more competitive, strategic and agile. Learn why outsourcing isn’t “alternative” and how your company can leverage this knowledge to stay ahead of the competition.

Lunch Breakout | The Envelope: Bringing it all together: strategy, succession and you

Location/Time: | 12:30 - 1:45 PM

Presenter: Executives from U.S. Trust

Your business represents years of sweat and sacrifice. Not only does the business provide the financial resources to support your family, but also, it supports your employees and their families, and it contributes to the stability and growth of your community. How would your company continue to operate if a personal health issue or untimely accident occurs and prevents you from leading the company? What actions would your management team and family need to take to successfully transition leadership of the company? In this session you will:
  • Learn actions you can take to address the issue of a possible leadership gap which also represent strong business practices to help your company always be prepared for a transition.
  • Discover focus areas to consider as you develop a plan and avoid potential pitfalls.
  • Hear examples of how other business owners have dealt with these issues.
 

Lunch Breakout | Transcendent Hiring

As a leader, the single most important job you have is getting the right people into the right roles. Yet according to research, 46% of all new hires fail in the first 18 months. In this session, we unpack some of the reasons why we’re so bad at hiring. But more importantly, we’ll give you new ways to think about hiring and actionable ways to drastically improve your game when it comes to finding, assessing and closing the candidates that will allow your business to thrive.
