When it comes to hiring strong female accounting talent, there is no cookie-cutter approach...Having a supportive network can be one of the most important ingredients to your success.
Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) September 30, 2016
Accountex USA announced Amy Vetter as presenter of a new course, Creating a Supportive Network with and for Women, at the 13th annual accounting technology conference and expo. Vetter will share five lessons learned from women she admires and how those lessons can empower attendees to build an infrastructure that helps women thrive while establishing a track to leadership. The session will drive awareness to key business skills needed for success in sales, marketing, and client service.
Amy Vetter, CPA.CITP, CGMA is the Global Vice President, Education & Head of Accounting, USA at Xero. Amy is an advocate and evangelist for the accounting profession and entrepreneurship. She has been recognized as a Top 100 Most Influential Person in Accounting Today’s Listing multiple times, been nominated as a “Women to Watch” by CALCPA, is an AICPA IMTA Executive Committee Member and CITP Champion, CALCPA MAP State Committee member, CALCPA Women’s Leadership Forum Conference Committee member and selected by The CPA Technology Advisor as an outstanding 40 under 40 technology-based accountant in 2006 and 2009.
"When it comes to hiring strong female accounting talent, there is no cookie-cutter approach. While many accounting firms correctly recognize the need for female talent in their practice, too many treat related recruiting and retention activities as one-size fits all," Vetter says. "Having a supportive network can be one of the most important ingredients to your success, and it starts from the ground up. During my Accountex session, I will share some of my own career lessons to help empower men and women leaders to build an infrastructure that helps women thrive and establishes a track to leadership. You will also walk away with a better awareness of the key business skills needed to succeed in Sales, Marketing and Client Service."
