Training Trends for CPA Firms

Training is a topic that ends up on the agenda of most firm meetings. Do the below questions sound familiar?

Do we need to provide more training? What areas in the firm need training? How should we provide this training? Who is tracking and being held accountable for the training?

Join us in September as Jim Fahey shares with our chapter how HBK is providing training today and Training Trends for CPA Firms.

Speaker – Jim Fahey, PAFM, Chief Learning Officer at HBK CPAs & Consultants
