About Speaker Ford Baker

Ford Baker, CPA, has over 35 years of experience in the public accounting industry, with over 20 of experience running a firm, BaCo Group, PLLC. In that role, Ford always sought to improve the efficiency of his firm through technology and forward-thinking. His passion was built out of a unique backstory; in 2012, he weighed almost 400 pounds, but by 2014 he had changed his life and rode a bicycle from Canada to Mexico down the Pacific Coast Highway. He had a passion and focus on eliminating the clutter in his practice that created the 400-pound version of himself that he did not want to see return. Ultimately, Ford developed an in-house transaction-based workflow using Excel and various other off-the-shelf utilities that gather data and work with data more real-time. This workflow concept can change the industry from a reactive service from putting last year’s balances on last year’s returns to proactive services, teaching clients the impact of this year’s numbers on their business, its exit value, and next year’s tax bill, today.

I did not realize it was going to be a sales pitch for a product. I thought it was going to provide tips on "touch it once" that I could apply to my daily workload immediately. I did read about the course content and did see something about their company, so shouldn't have been surprised, but don't know that I would have signed up and listened for the hour, as I am a one-person office and cannot afford their product.

KN

Basically a bit of content with the remainder of the hour being one long ad. Which I thought it might be. Just was hoping for a little more conceptual / actionable ideas prior to the promotional material. Still, good ideas, and a neat platform for those who can use it.

KB

The course was very specific to an accounting process concept but was suggested to be a much broader business practice improvement.

WS

I had a hard time following for some reason.

LM

Good content but needs to be presented in a more concise manner.

LG

As was the majority of the attendees present, I am a tax preparer. The course was clearly for accounting professionals. It did not apply to what I do as a TAX professional. The name of the course was misleading. Had I known it was for accounting I would not have signed up for it.

RK

I have no idea what they said

JL

Isles to my practice. I thought it would be about increasing my office efficiency and procedures. I’m not sure what this hour was about. Sorry
