Accounting Industry Training ‘Dream Team’

Accounting Industry Training ‘Dream Team’ – Two top industry training organisations team up

February 2013 will see the start of a new era in collaboration when TEO and CCH Business Fitness NZ team up to deliver their joint online seminar programme.

It’s the ultimate webinar team says CCH Business Fitness NZ General Manager Julie Benton, “TEO are a widely respected training organisation, and we’re delighted to be delivering their webinars to both our clients and the existing TEO audience”.

TEO director Scott Mason adds that “We have a very similar philosophy to Business Fitness, which focuses on bringing to accounting firms the training and tools they need when they need them”. Collaboration was a natural choice, with TEO’s presenters highly respected, and Business Fitness’ organisational and technical skills well-honed from years of delivering online training.

Although CCH Business Fitness NZ is based in Mt Maunganui and TEO hails from Dunedin, this partnership will be a close one through the power of the internet. Online seminars have proven very popular and convenient with presenters and accounting firms, both in densely-packed cities and in far flung remote corners, coming together in one ‘virtual room’.

The initial 2013 TEO schedule will focus on farm tax and accounting topics, with well-known TEO presenter Tony Marshall (from WHK) continuing to deliver his top quality seminars online, with the power of the Business Fitness team supporting him. “This collaboration means that TEO can focus on developing course content and leave the nuts and bolts to Business Fitness”. Another topic targeted for 2013 is FIFs, focusing on practical issues for practitioners.

TEO will also be able to focus on developing their successful face-to-face seminar programme. “We truly believe that both online and in person seminars have a place in industry training. Taking some topics online allows TEO to reach a wider audience for specialised topics which appeal to geographically challenged accountants” says Mrs Benton, “and Business Fitness are well-practiced at facilitating this”.

With Auckland tax specialists nsaTax also continuing to deliver their comprehensive webinars with CCH Business Fitness NZ, “ it’s about delivering the best and widest training options for the Industry and we are firmly in agreement that collaboration is the way forward” says Mr Mason. With an initial focus on rural tax issues and FIFs, the TEO programme will complement the existing webinar schedule, providing training for accountants servicing all industry sectors.

Both TEO and CCH Business Fitness NZ look forward to a lasting relationship, working together for the benefit of the New Zealand Accounting Industry.
