Learn from Intuit's Global Firm of the Future 2017 Winner, Juliet Aurora, at Get Connected Vancouver 2018
Are you feeling the post-holiday, there’s nothing-to-look-forward-to blues? I have the remedy: Get Connected Vancouver 2018! Coming Jan. 22-23, 2018, the conference offers two exciting days of networking, interacting and learning with your fellow accountants and industry experts. It will help you take your QuickBooks® Online (QBO) knowledge – and your business – to the next level. As we at Intuit® like to say, it’s the place where insights meet action.
Juliet Aurora – founder, President and CEO of AIS Solutions – is looking forward to attending Get Connected Vancouver 2018, both as a speaker and as an attendee. Today, she shares her thoughts on why you, too, should register and on what to expect at her session when you sign up.
Juliet on the Benefits of Attending Get Connected Vancouver 2018
Having attended both QuickBooks Connect in San Jose and QuickBooks Connect Toronto for the last three years, Juliet walks the talk about the benefits of participating in these events. She feels the learning that takes place and the connections you make are incredibly valuable.
“There’s always new things to learn, and there’s always exciting new features being announced at the sessions that are hosted with the various speakers. The industry is changing so rapidly that it’s a great way to very quickly find out what’s happening now, what’s happened in the last year and what’s coming up in the new year,” she says.
Juliet explains that the training sessions are not the only way to increase your QBO knowledge and success. “There are so many connections that are made at the breakfast, lunch and dinner tables that are invaluable. Being able to sit down with peers from your industry who are going through the same struggles as you, the same challenges and sometimes the same successes is a great way to create a bond either locally or with people across the country.”
In fact, the direct connection you get with the industry’s community when you register for Get Connected Vancouver 2018 is what Juliet sees as the foundation of the industry’s success.
“There is nothing like human face-to-face connection. One of the things I love is being able to meet people that I have met online through various social media channels in person. It feels like you know them already, but being able to put a real face and being able to talk to them in person is completely different,” she says.
She continues, “Meeting people I would never cross paths with otherwise in my day-to-day and learning from their experiences is always great. The more you learn together and share together, the better the industry is going to be!”
Juliet on What She’ll Talk About at Get Connected Vancouver 2018
As a QBO expert, Juliet will center her talk on how to use QBO to its fullest, resulting in satisfied clients.
“I’m going to be talking about what’s new in QBO, both the end user version as well as the QBO Accountant version. I’ll be going over some of the exciting new things that have been released over the last year. As I said, the industry is changing so quickly that from one month to the next, the program is different,” she says.
Regardless of where you’re at in your QBO journey, Juliet feels you can benefit from learning about the new features. It’s the perfect opportunity to research and discover what the program offers.
“Intuit is rolling out so many great features that can help us as accounting professionals, can help our clients and help us provide better service to our clients,” Juliet states. “My session is designed to be a quick recap of some of the features that have been launched over the last year so that if you weren’t aware of it, you can do a deeper dive and look into some of the things that could be invaluable in the service you provide to your clients.”

Juliet and her team continually look to the future and advise their clients on the role cloud technology plays in growing their businesses; the team’s efforts resulted in AIS Solutions being named the winner of Intuit’s Global Firm of the Future 2017. Attending Get Connected Vancouver 2018 allows you to take advantage of Juliet’s QBO expertise and to learn how cloud technology can impact your business.
As Juliet says, Get Connected Vancouver 2018 is a way for attendees “to immerse themselves in the new changes that are taking place in our industry and get up to speed as quickly as possible.”
It’s also important to point out the new location for this year’s event. “It’s the first time it’s in Vancouver, which is fabulous because it’s always been in Toronto before. It’s great that there’s a large Canadian event that’s happening on the West coast,” Juliet says. “The West coast people have always come out to us for the QuickBooks events so I’m looking forward to us coming to them this time; I think it will be a nice change.”
Register for Get Connected Vancouver 2018, meet Juliet in Vancouver and start the new year off right – your business and your clients will thank you. See you there!
