Over two days, guests attended free and ticketed talks hosted by some of the industry’s most prominent thought leaders and disruptors who came together to discuss the future of accounting and bookkeeping.Attendees had a front-row seat to live recordings of some of the sectors’ leading podcasts and benefited from exclusive CPD-accredited workshops hosted by industry thought leaders.

Accountex Australia Product Manager, Sinead Kavanaugh thanked all those who attended Accountex.

“It’s been fantastic to see everyone gather and share knowledge and insights on some of the biggest trends affecting accounting and bookkeeping.”

“From adopting cutting edge technology that streamlines business operations and improves the client experience, to taking a holistic approach to employee wellbeing to combat burnout, the event shared a wealth of strategies relevant to firms of all sizes.”

“With the industry currently going through a period of widespread transformation, having the opportunity to network and hear from those who are leading the charge is both inspiring and rewarding.”

The CA ANZ Pitch Night Live was a standout event, with attendees watching as six founders competed to be crowned the inaugural Accountex Australia Pitch Night winner and to take home a prize pack valued at over $12k.
