COVID-19 Webinar Series

Our COVID-19 Webinar Series has been designed to support Accountants throughout this difficult period. 

Our goal is to provide you with access to expertise and knowledge which will facilitate you in providing invaluable leadership to your clients and the wider business community during these uncertain times.

The economic health and safety of your SME clients is essential, not just for when we emerge from the pandemic, but right now, in helping communities get through this challenging period.

We believe that accountants are the natural leaders of the business community. We also know that to be of service and to lead others, you must first be a leader in your own business. 

To support you, we are running a free webinar series over the coming weeks to assess the impact of COVID-19 for accountants and what you can do to protect your team, your business and your customers.

Des O'Neill - ProfitPro

I am an accountant just like you, but I believe, and always have believed that there is a better way for accountants to run their businesses, so they get exactly what they want.

Over the past 15 years, I have worked with thousands of firms. I have seen how the best practices operate, and the mistakes that firms most commonly make. This experience has inspired me to develop my unique Accountant’s Six-Step Success Path.

I am now dedicating my life to sharing my Accountant’s Six-Step Success Path with as many accountants as possible, ensuring their businesses are more profitable and less stressful. 

It would be an honour to work with you, to guide you on your path to improving your firm's results while reducing your workload and helping you fall in love with your business again.
