I enjoyed the free CPE. I found it quick and easy to use.

I was able to access the handouts before the seminar and review the information. The class was long enough and was informative about virtual work. Good examples provided for the pros and cons of virtual work and hiring of offshore/outsourcing for your entity.

JS

Excellent!

MP

thank you

RR

CM

CZ

Thank you

LC

This webinar was more of an advocation of outsourcing (to India) administrative tasks. The title led me to believe it would be focused on remote working.

SM

good

BS

The program was more of an advertisement for the presenter's company services than I anticipated.

CRC

Interesting presentation.

This felt like a sales pitch, not like CPE

Good webinar

DW

Good class, a few technical issues but we were aware that might happen.

JB

Gives me something to think about with potentially hiring folks in India.

LW

Not sure all glitches were on side of presenter. A couple of minor lags/ glitches at various points

CH

Very good webinar.

LV

Interesting webinar

BP

I am a sole proprietor so I really do not need offshore help.

KM

The presenter had some technical difficulties. No problem from my end on that because I too have issues as well sometimes. I did feel the webinar was more about offshoring than I thought it'd be about. I thought it was going to be about working from home and focus around that. But I did get some knowledge about outsourcing and offshoring I didn't know before.

DJ

Good experience through the webinar

The session was informative and the instructor was engaging.

AE

Overall I found this webinar informative in terms of the availability of offshore staffing for CPA and other accounting firms. As an employee in industry, these opportunities are not available to me specifically, but it is nonetheless interesting to see these sorts of opportunities grow. The information was presented well.

CL

My overall experience was good

DS

it was good

KL

Great webinar! Instructor was very knowledgeable and effective. My current position does not have a requirement for supplemental off-shore staff, but this program was a great overview of how a solution with qualified, effective personnel could be achieved.

This was an interesting webinar. It is not as relevant to my day to day but needed the CPE. I learned something about remote work/offshore/outsource options.

I liked that he kept everyone engaged with multiple polling questions.

very interesting. something I had not considered

YS

Great information. Very helpful in current working environment.

SS

agreed

MUA

Good learning

JK

I was not expecting a sales pitch - was thinking this would be more about working remotely - not hiring offshore employees.

JB

I was interested in outsourcing as a topic but I work in education and so do not have a personal need for services. I would have preferred more emphasis on what it means for companies and less on how accounting firms can benefit. This difference may have been a lack of understanding of the purpose of the course on my part.

TA

I felt the focus on not about remote working rather it was hiring his firm to acquire overseas worker in India

BO

Good

DS

While this webinar did not apply all that much to me as I am not involved in hiring, nor could my firm really benefit from hiring remotely, it opened up my eyes to possible ideas for the future.

KH

good info

SD

My experience with this program is that it is for accounting firm with more clients then I have.

MED

MyCpe is a great place to get exposure to things you aren't using in your organization. Allows you time to see what else is out there.

Seemed like a sales pitch

RO

OK

PD

too many polling questions

DP

PA

Informative

PK

While this program did give a nice insight into outsourcing it did come like a pitch to try and get clients.

GW

Lose Opportunities to explain growth.

KM

My firm would never consider using overseas workers. They are trying to get everybody back due to the virus. We go to clients and are not set up for remote working.

LR

Not sure I really gained any information other then a sales pitch.

TM

This was not educational.

GD

Essentially just a sales pitch.

KP

A little too sales-focused for the speakers company. He was an engaging speaker, but the content revolved too much around his company and their services.

MD

There was about 15 minutes max on the actual subject matter, with the remainder being a sales pitch. I understand sales is part of the free CPE, but this seemed off-balance.

CC

Not as expected. Not tax implications from working remotely

AY

This appeared to be a marketing tool for this organization more than informing.

CH

This was pure sales for an hour and no learning. I also found some of the comments offensive.

EB

I now realize that FREE=sales pitch

WG

More of an info-mercial for Entigrity rather than CPE.
