Course Description

This session will be dedicated to the possibility that a professional organization can be run more effectively when it becomes a knowledge firm rather than a service firm. Creating such an organization is hard work and not for everyone. It requires us to think differently than we have in the past about what it is that we do. You are hereby invited to open a dialogue on a different model for creating and capturing value in a professional firm. 

We will explore two business models: 

  • the firm of the past 
  • the firm of the future. 

Highlights of the webinar:

  • Different Business Models
  • Various assertions to consider
  • Reaching Revenue to Profit

JB

This was an outstanding webinar that every CPA and probably every sole proprietor should consider.

AI

Ed delivered a high energy, on point, value-added webinar. More "business owners" should review this type of vital dialogue!

BM

Very insightful and made me stop and think about the direction our firm needs to go.

VS

Ed shared valuable and relevant information....even to us sole practitioners! I highly recommend this class. It left me feeling inspired with ideas of how to adapt my business model moving forward.

OM

This was an excellent webinar to help you break out of the "norm" and be more forward-thinking!
