Generating Leads for my Bookkeeping Business - To Grow or Not to Grow

Presented By:  Kevin Simpson and Laura Bechard

Never has there been a time where bookkeepers should not be sitting back and simply waiting for business to come to them.

More and more business owners are getting frustrated with doing their books themselves after initially thinking it was going to be clear and easy sailing with QBO.

The switch to a professional bookkeeper is something they simply must do.

This talk will challenge the audience on how to move towards lead generation AND, go over one of the newest growth markets that is emerging today.

Participants will learn vital background information that will position them to be well ahead of the masses next year

Presenter's Bio:

Kevin Simpson

Kevin is an award winning coach and professional presenter with the #1 business coaching firm in the world - ActionCoach.  He is ranked globally in the top 100 list of best business coaches and simply put -he sets the bar high for himself and his customers.

Being a partner in the largest Business Coaching firm in Canada, owning a leading boutique bicycle store known worldwide for its customer service, and last but certainly not least - a restaurant ranked in the top 100 in Canada with his wife Wendy will have that effect on you.

Kevin's belief is that success doesn't happen by accident - it's planned, worked for, and it is to be shared.  Every detail counts, and it is this commitment that come through in everything he does, every company he coaches, and every audience he speaks to.

Laura  Bechard

An academic award winning, top graduate MBA and chartered professional accountant, Laura Bechard is the creator of the innovative ProVision Coaching System, promoting the effective, fulfilling union of family and entrepreneurial life. Having successfully developed her own insightful, business education practice under that same name, Laura now proudly joins ActionCoach, the premier business coaching firm worldwide.

Sharing co-ownership with her husband of a century old grain farming operation that has increased tenfold in revenue under their leadership, Laura is now masterminding an extensive crop diversification, venturing into “cannabusiness” and other health and wellness botanicals, along with managing the specifics involved with the eventual transitioning of the business over to her children.

This is certainly not Laura’s sole experience working in partnership with her spouse. In fact, they capably built up two other profitable businesses, one in small equipment sales and rentals, which they subsequently sold; the other, in pipeline construction, was successfully liquidated.

Undoubtedly, this savvy visionary knows her way around running a family business.

Far from being a quirk of luck, Laura believes, instead, that success is intentional, the result of evaluating every strategy, but only implementing the “right” ones.

It takes effective communication and planning to assure the positive management of change, that inevitable evolution we encounter in business, and in life.

Clearly evident in her speaking, her coaching, truthfully, in everything she does, is Laura’s heartfelt commitment to ensuring that family business owners reap the benefits of transition, as they continue on to realize their own dreams, and to create a legacy for their children.
