Some information out of my realm but presented very well. Presenter very knowledgeable and presentation was very fluid. Poll questions relevant and were also included as part of the handouts and each one was reviewed. Look forward to additional seminars by presenter

KA

Jenifer did a wonderful job covering a lot of ground - accounting, auditing, and compilation/review updates - in 1 hour. She pointed out which updates are required for implementation in the current year and which ones need to be kept on the radar and preferably adopted for early implementation. Jenifer's passion for accounting is noticeable, and her delivery is very engaging

EBI

The presenter Jeniffer, CPA is a fantastic and knowledgeable speaker. The material is presented clearly and the slides have the supporting information for future review and analysis. Thank you for all the time and effort invested in making this presentation awesome!

CB

Speaker has especially pleasant voice and easy speaking style. Nicely organized and I liked the use of the "early bird" and "required" graphics making it easy to prioritize items we needed to be aware of, Great presentation accompanied by excellent slides that included meaningful examples to demonstrate how to implement

BG

Enjoyed seminar- but some of the pronouncements do not go into effect until 2020-so would have preferred a bit more emphasis on more current items that will need for upcoming y/s, enjoyed this review of the items that are hot topics currently and very engaging.
