Symposium Start In








Who is this conference for?

This conference is for small to medium-size accounting firm owners who want to:
  • Attract more clients with high-profit, recurring revenue engagements clients
  • Get paid what they’re actually worth
  • Stop working with clients who don’t value their expertise
  • make better money and get back more free time

Take advantage of our special pricing to bring key team members to the conference, too!

This 2-day conference will show you how to:

Attract High-Value Clients

Learn the exact and predictable process to bring on 3, 5, and even 10 new ideal clients AND see for yourself the secret to finding these clients—and how others have spotted mega-profitable clients right under their noses.

Deliver High-Profit Engagements With a Plan (and Newfound Confidence)

Discover the step-by-step process for delivering high-profit monthly work while removing the guesswork, risk, and downside associated with high-value clients. Understand exactly what, when, and how to deliver—and stop spinning your wheels trying to figure it out on your own.

Get Paid What You Are Worth

Discover your true value and why getting paid anything less than $3,000 PER MONTH, PER CLIENT is destroying your chances of real growth, fulfillment, and enjoyment. (Don’t worry, you don’t have to get rid of clients if you don’t want to, you just have to learn this proven approach instead.)

I have to say this has been the best online conference/training that I have ever taken. I was never bored or felt like I was wishing the time went by faster. I was intrigued, motivated, and challenged every day. Transformation within three days.
