The Xero Roadshow Australia 2017 is set to be our biggest year yet – visiting a total of 24 locations across the country.
From 30 January through to 17 February, the roadshow will touchdown in all major cities and many regional areas across Australia. And this year, we’ve added extra locations to the line up, meaning we can share our latest news with even more partners than ever.
The focus: the product
In my role as National Partner Director, I’m constantly thinking about the best ways to empower our partners. Last year, the biggest takeaway was that you wanted more product insights and knowledge of what’s coming up, so this year, we are taking the opportunity to get right back to the product – exploring the best ways we can use the powerful features available, and those to come.
Our hope is that every one of our partners will leave the roadshow inspired, and armed with new ways to inject efficiencies into small business. So no matter where you are, from Darwin to Hobart, every full-day event will be built around three key sessions: Intro to Xero, Xero Update and Xero HQ.
1. Intro to Xero
We know there are many partners who are new to Xero, so this session is designed to help any one who is new to the journey, or those looking to start. Intro to Xero will walk you through some of our key product features built for bookkeepers and accountants, and explain the business-changing efficiencies to be found from working with Xero on the cloud.
If you’ve any new recruits in your business, this is a great session for them to join. If you need no introduction, you can start the roadshow with Morning Tea and Session Two.
2. Xero Update
Cloud accounting is in a constant state of change, as we engineer the latest resources to help you do beautiful business. But in order to help you succeed, we need to help you keep up to speed with our latest innovations. In this session, our leaders will talk you through some of the recent platform highlights and give live previews on the features you can expect to see in the coming months.
3. Xero HQ
Combining features such as an Activity Feed, Client List, Explorer functionality and an Advisory Directory, Xero HQ has redefined the practice platform – empowering partners to understand what action to take, with which client, and when. This session will take a deep dive into the new open platform and explore the benefits of our industry-leading practice tools.

Xero Roadshow Australia 2017 is an unmissable opportunity to learn what’s on the horizon for your practice, ask questions of our team, and chat to other bookkeepers, accountants and app partners in the industry. The more connected we are, the more we can achieve.
There’s never been a better time to be an accountant, and this is never more clear than when I can see how much these product developments mean to our partners and Senior Account Managers across the country.
