Hello, Lisa here reporting back from last weeks XEROCON!
Kelley & I spent an amazing 2 days at Xerocon. It’s something we have been meaning to go to for a few years now but to be honest, just seemed a little ‘cliché’ for us. We are Xero silver partners and have been using this software for our practice and clients for many years. So off we went to the Brisbane Convention Centre ready to have our ‘minds blown’ with 3,700 other bean counters.

The exhibition hall was a great space although we felt like we had entered the Google headquarters. There were almost 100 app developers, enough food and drink to last the apocalypse and some down time activities. We really enjoyed moving around and discussing our clients’ needs with the app developers and having a few random conversations with other Xero users. We didn’t brave the Miami themed ball ‘pool’, slam dunk with a NBA player, play mini golf or ping pong, but the options were there.
Moving into the conference hall, complete with its own DJ we felt like we had entered a rave in 1992. We thoroughly enjoyed all the keynote speakers which ranged from a Professor discussing the future of Artificial Intelligence to Mark Manson telling us how to not give a f*&k. After lunch they offered a range of silent disco style breakout sessions. We had reviewed the sessions the night before and were excited with the impact the information would have on our practice and clients.
