  3. Having multiple user access – no need to send paper copies or large electronic files, with easy online access
  4. Work from anywhere – access you account from anywhere online
  5. Bank statements are automatically imported and categorised – reconcile in seconds
  6. Collaborate over up-to-date data
  7. Saving space – no need for extra computer storage or filing cabinets

  9. Invoices sent online – get paid faster!
  10. Xero integrates with other accountancy software, such as receipt bank, which makes book-keeping as easy as taking a photo.

2016 Speed Business PlanningHooke & Co 1

Francis Hooke from Hooke & Co. Business Consulting will lead the 2016 Business Planning section of the workshop.

Delegates will be asked to reflect on lessons learned during 2015, as well as looking forwards into 2016. Targets will be set and then these will be translated into tangible actions to deliver quarter-by-quarter during 2016.

Delegates will leave the workshop with a high-level plan for the year ahead. This plan can be used as it is, or as the foundation for more detailed planning.

Francis holds a range of project management accreditations and memberships. To find out more information about Hooke & Co. please click here.
