Smart Business Expo April 28, 2014 - Kumeu, Auckland, NZ
The Smart Business Expo hit Kumeu on April 28th 2014. Business owners from around Auckland, and in some cases slightly further afield, descended upon the event in order to experience one of the many workshops being held throughout the day.
The goal of the Smart Business Expo, just like it is every year, is to provide local business the opportunity to test out some of the latest technology which they can utilize in their company to boost their productivity and ultimately their turnover. The secrets shared throughout the Smart Business Expo on April 28th 2014 are secrets that are currently being used by some of the biggest companies in the world. Experts were on hand for every workshop and in between workshops to answer any questions that people needed answering.
In addition to learning new techniques for driving their company forward, the Smart Business Expo also aimed to create a sort of ‘community’. People from all over the local area were brought together to discuss business. Under one roof you would find everything from business owners to managers to those who are just throwing around an idea before taking it forward. This provided the perfect opportunity for everybody and seemed to be a main focus for the majority of people in addition to the workshops.
Perhaps the real highlight of the event was the Free Xero Training offered by Number Nurses. This One Hour Workshop was a rousing success and attempted to cover absolutely everything that you needed to know in order to use Xero in your business. For those who are unaware, Xero is the perfect system for small businesses (and larger ones for that matter!). The whole system has been designed to ensure that your business processes are smoother than ever before. Xero can be accessed online from anywhere in the world. From the system you are able to carry out your banking, look at accountancy reports, and even send out invoices. The whole system has been designed to cut down on the amount of time that you spend playing around with numbers and boosting the amount of time that you spend on your business. Everybody that completed the Free Xero Training from Number Nurses ended up with a certificate at the end detailing their completion of the course.
Throughout the day there were a number of talks on designing powerful websites, more information on Xero cloud accounting, and even details on managing properties. In short, the Smart Business Expo was the place to ‘be seen’ for anybody that wanted to change the way in which they do business. Everybody that attended the event had a fantastic time and probably walked out of the area with more knowledge than they thought possible.
