I'm excited to be presenting a session on financial forecasting on September 24, 2014 in Austin, Texas. It's part of the very popular annual Controller's Conference event organized by the Austin Chapter of the Texas Society of CPAs.
I'd love to see you there if you would like to spend a little time here in Austin. J
I'll be presenting mid-morning for 50 minutes. Here is the session description:
Using Financial Forecasts to Enhance Confidence, Credibility and Trust
In this session, you will learn how to use financial forecasts and projections to enhance confidence, credibility and trust with everyone interested in (and invested in) the financial success of your organization. Creating a forward looking view of financial performance is a powerful way for CPAs in industry to play a more strategic and vital role in the future of their organization. Philip will show you how to create a financial forecast you can trust… and how to avoid the single biggest mistake CFOs and Controllers make when creating a financial forecast or projection.
I love the way the conference is organized.
- It attracts Controllers and CFOs in industry (although everyone is welcome)
- There are eight different sessions/presenters during the day
- Each session is fast-paced and only lasts 50 minutes
One of the sessions I can't wait to see will be led by Bill Klein of Consero Global. Here is the session description:
The Accounting Department of the Future Has Arrived
Today, accounting professionals are being asked to provide more strategic guidance and insightful financial information, while at the same time making their back office and compliance processes more effective and efficient. In this session, we will show you how high performance accounting departments are reducing the cost of accounting and delivering fast, accurate and insightful financial information to their leadership team. The intersection of cloud technology and creative outsourcing arrangements is creating exciting opportunities to forever change how accounting departments operate and provide value. We'll show you exactly what it looks like and how it works.
Consero Global is Changing Accounting and Finance in an Exciting Way

The 2014 Controller's Conference is going to be a fantastic opportunity to learn and grow.
