Recently, the prestigious 2017 Australian Accountants Awards, sponsored by AccountantsDaily, honored several Australians for their efforts to support the accounting profession and drive it forward. Three of those honored have close ties to Intuit® and QuickBooks®, and were all featured speakers at the first QuickBooks Connect event held in Sydney earlier this month.

Congratulations go to:
