Bootcamp: Planning Your Practice for 2019

In today’s fast-paced and unpredictable economic environment, it is imperative that you, as a small or medium-sized accounting practitioner, move with the times. 

This means finding innovative solutions for diversifying your offerings, keeping your clients and attracting new ones, cutting unnecessary costs, successfully managing your staff and achieving sustainable growth.

Now, more than ever, it is crucial to develop strong practice management skills and to plan your business strategy in advance

SAIBA’s Planning Your Practice for 2019 Bootcamp, brought to you by SA Accounting Academy, is a two-day event which will explore how to be successful in practice management in today’s challenging climate and will give you the tools to put together your very own strategic business plan for 2019

Day One will bring together small and medium-sized accounting practitioners, advisory firms, technology providers and industry experts to examine the challenges of running an accounting practice and reveal tips and techniques to overcome these, as well as best practice advice on how to plan for a successful 2019. 

Day Two will give you the opportunity to brainstorm with your team or other practitioners and come up with your own business strategy for 2019.  A workbook will be provided and mentors will be on hand throughout the morning to assist with any queries.  There will also be an opportunity for practitioners and mentors to give feedback on this process to the audience.

In the afternoon, you will have the option to host your year-end function at one of Menlyn Maine’s many restaurants.

During Day 2 of the Bootcamp, it’s time to take all of your ideas and inspiration from Day 1 and turn them into a concrete plan for your practice’s future. 

During this morning roundtable session, practice owner and accountants’ coach Rudi Jansen will be helping you to create your own roadmap – giving you absolute clarity on where you are now, where you want to be, and the exact route you need to take to get there.

When you attend this session, you will:

  • Create your ‘Big Hairy Audacious Goal’ – the exact place you and your business want to be in 10 years’ time
  • Gain absolute clarity on your current strengths and how you can use these to differentiate yourself and stand out from the competition
  • Develop an understanding of your current weaknesses and the exact steps you need to take to turn these into strengths
  • Reverse engineer your plan, identifying the top 3 things you need to do this quarter to move your plan forwards
  • Leave with an incredible feeling of inspiration and motivation to take action as soon as you return to your office

Having run this session with hundreds of practice owners all over the world, this session has been described as “inspirational”, “incredibly powerful” and “something every single practice should do”.  Make sure that you bring your partners to this session so that you benefit from the value of discussing your plans together and agree on your objectives and key focus areas going forward.
