In a record 36 minutes, the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters sold out every location of its fifth annual Partner Summits. Starting May 16, the two-day strategic visioning forum will tour seven U.S. cities and feature presentations from Tony Frigo, Senior Technical Trainer at Thomson Reuters, Therese Witherow, Senior Technical Trainer at Thomson Reuters and M. Darren Root, CPA.CITP, Executive Editor of CPA Practice Advisor, and President of RootWorks.
“It is an amazing honor to lead Thomson Reuters’ fifth annual Partner Summits,” says Root, Principal of Root & Associates, LLC. “I've been doing this since their inception. Our passion at RootWorks is to help small firms rethink their practices while providing the tools and resources to assist them in becoming Next Generation Accounting Firms. I am looking forward to connecting with the attendees and having the opportunity to learn from each and every one of them.”
During the exclusive tax and accounting thought leadership event, 40 participants will receive individualized instruction on several aspects of firm management, adapting to changes within the profession, creating a growth strategy, best practices and workflow trends. Attendees will also have the opportunity to brainstorm ideas with other professionals and develop a customized action plan during the events, which include fine dining, social events and networking.
The 2012 Partner Summits will be held on the following dates in the following cities:
May 16-17 San Antonio, TX
May 23-24 Phoenix, AZ
June 13-14 Atlanta, GA
July 25-26 Baltimore, MD
August 1-2 Kansas City, MO
August 22-23 Chicago, IL
September 19-20 New Orleans, LA
“Last year’s Summits sold out in just under six hours. This year’s sold out in 36 minutes. I really don’t know what to expect next year,” said Scott Fleszar, vice president of Strategic Marketing for Tax & Accounting, Thomson Reuters. “It has been very exciting to see the continued success of Partner Summits over the years. With only 40 seats for each forum, we can offer a level of individualized attention that really sets the event apart. The Partner Summits offer a broader business perspective on the profession rather than product or compliance training. They’re about looking at how to more effectively run a practice, build business, and serve clients.”
