David was excited to talk about a brand new online accounting summit, built for accountants by accountants, presenting the “From The Trenches - Trenches Summit”.

The Trenches Summit is a two-day online accounting conference hosted entirely online using world-class virtual summit technology. It’s free to attend and/or a paid ticket option is available to get access to all session recordings. 

Register your tickets here for the 13th & 14th of September.

David was proud to tell us that a percentage of all ticket sales are being donated to Beyond Blue for the fantastic work they’re doing to help support mental health in Australia. In what is described as one of the most trying times Australians have ever faced.

“We’re really excited to bring the Trenches Summit to life. It’s been a dream come true for me. I’ve been involved in accounting conferences for years, as a speaker, a sponsor, a vendor but never as an event organiser” Boyar said.

“I’ve been privileged to know a lot of the movers, shakers and ‘Thought-leaders’ of our industry for quite some time. There’s so many great stories that get overlooked by big conferences because commercial obligations take priority. If you’re not a big vendor paying top dollar, you’re not welcome to collectively share your ideas and help our industry move forward.”

When asked about the content program and why this is different to other online events he said,

“We’re really proud of the content program we’ve put together. It had to pass the Paul and Dave’s no BS test in order to get in the schedule. 

That’s what ‘From The Trenches’ has always been about and it’s important we stay true to our values.

Real-life in the accounting industry, right now. Not mythical vapor-ware technology that Elon Musk dreams about in his 5 mins of down time. It’s gotta be real and it’s got to be relevant.

We’ve got sessions for everyone. Practice Managers, Bookkeepers, SMSF Specialists. You name it, we’ve thought of it, found the best person possible to speak on it and placed it in the schedule.”

Why leave it there?
