In June 2018, I will be traveling to Atlanta, GA to attend Scaling New Heights for my 4th time. Scaling New Heights (or #SNH18) is one of the best accounting conferences to attend to find new technologies, learn from the top accounting leaders, and network with the most advanced QuickBooks ProAdvisors from around the world. The agenda features inspiring keynotes by Joe Woodard, Darren Root, Daniel Susskind, Ariege Misherghi, Misty Megia, Dawn Fotopulos, Randy Johnston, Damien Greathead, Geni Whitehouse, and none other than Steve Forbes. The panels and workshops also provide an incredible mix of thought leaders in the accounting profession.
