“Unlike LinkedIn and Facebook, beansTalk (http://www.beansTalk.ca) is a custom-designed network for Canada’s tax, accounting, financial planning and bookkeeping professionals.”

Jennifer Allan is talking about beansTalk, a unique new online community. It’s sponsored by CCH Canadian, where Ms. Allan is Director, Marketing, Tax, Accounting & Financial Planning.

“The name says it all: ‘beansTalk …for those who count.’” She smiles. “Speaking of counting, the site already has over a thousand members!” From the beansTalk homepage, these members can join discussions; see what industry events are upcoming; link to a job-board; and more.

Much of the content is unique, though some is also syndicated blogs and industry news.

Recognized experts blog on hot industry topics. Current discussions include: practice management; tax and accounting news; international financial reporting standards (IFRS); and popular tax compliance softwares, Cantax, Taxprep and ProSystem fx Tax.

“These discussions are where we’ve started, but the site will progress as more members sign up and participate. The conversations will naturally evolve to reflect the members’ interests.”

So the content will become that much more relevant for them.

“Exactly. And, although membership is free, the participation and opinions of members are invaluable!” In fact, members are encouraged to offer feedback, “whether that’s commenting and rating articles, or posting and answering questions.”

These discussions at beansTalk utilise many interactive media, from blogging services to Twitter and Facebook to YouTube. In fact, that’s where beansTalk’s ‘Trends in Accounting’ series of videos also resides.

Another important feature is beansTalkCareer (http://www.beansTalkCareer.ca), a robust industry job-board. It’s for employers sourcing their next hire and professionals finding their next job.

Working and aspiring professionals are encouraged to join the conversations at beanstalk.ca.
