I don’t often go around quoting Albert Einstein to people but, as we prepare for the launch of our Xero Roadshow 2017 next week, there’s one familiar phrase I keep coming back to: “imagination is more important than knowledge”.
Putting your imagination on our roadmap
This year, we’re getting ready to share some exciting product knowledge with you – new updates that answer an existing need or create new opportunities, and features that can make your firms more efficient and empowered.
This knowledge will be an important asset for everyone in our community of accountants and bookkeepers.
But to really get the most out of your time, I encourage you think of the Roadshow as more than an information-gathering day. Instead, use it as a chance to be imaginative; to ask yourself some questions.
What do you imagine for your business – for your colleagues, your clients, or the people you go home to after work – this year? Where do you want to go next? And how can these product updates help you get there?
Xero really is a product of your imagination – it exists and shifts to bring your big ideas to life. Your feedback will continue to shape our product development, so our products can help shape you. That’s when things get exciting for everyone. That’s when our product really starts to do its job.
The two-way conversation
This year’s Roadshow will be built around three key sessions: Intro to Xero, a Xero Product Update and our new open practice platform, Xero HQ. All of these sessions are designed to meet you – or your new starters – where you’re at, and show you where we’re heading in the months to come.
But our product development is a two-way conversation, which is why your account manager will be available at your local roadshow event, whether you live in Darwin or Melbourne. As we share our updates with you, feel free to share yours with us.
Ask questions. Tell us what you’re trying to achieve at your firm. Talk about the products, features or experiences you’d like for your future – or the ones you don’t quite understand yet.
Don’t miss the chance to weigh in on one of this year’s most productive conversations for us all.
Make it matter
You’ll also have the opportunity to chat to other bookkeepers, accountants and app partners in the industry, and take home a special gift. There will be more than 30 app partner exhibitors across the event series, so take the time to sit down to learn more about some add-on services, face to face, before taking those learnings back to your firm.
Xero Roadshow Australia 2017 is set to be our biggest year yet – but it’s also has the potential to be strictly personal, and all about you.
We look forward to seeing you there.
