As much as I’d love to say I spent last week at “Comicon” (does anyone watch The Big Bang Theory?)…my outing at “Xerocon” was a tad more serious…if you can call a CEO skateboarding around the Melbourne Showgrounds serious??
First up for me was Uni Day at Crown Promenade, where I was able to have a face-to-face workshop session with my Xero account manager and the head of Accounting at Xero. We set some goals and had the chance to bounce ideas off our fellow Xero certified partners – you see in our business, there’s no sitting still. You must continue to learn and enhance your skills, and for me, it’s also about how I can enhance the service to my clients…
Following Uni Day were two days of conference – two FULL days of learning new tips and tricks and finding out all the new developments the team at Xero have been working on.
But it’s not only the team at Xero who’ve been busy – users of Xero may be aware of the “Add-on Market” – Xerocon was a great chance to meet a number of these developers and see their products (you should see how many pens, stress balls, drink bottles and branded lollies I’ve come home with!)
In all seriousness though, I look forward sharing more of Xero with you – keep an eye on Mondays!
PS of all the facts and figures thrown around, for some reason the only one I can remember is that the development team drank 180,000 cups of coffee last year…go figure!?!?
