Thomson Reuters launches 2019 partner summits

Thomson Reuters has scheduled its 12th annual series of partner summits for tax and accounting professionals.

The series, “Partner Summit: Moving Your Practice Forward,” is limited to 80 attendees per city. Mark Martukovich, managing partner of FMA CPA, returns this year as the featured practitioner presenter to share his insights about how his firm’s focus on client relationships and value-added services has transformed his practice. “It is very satisfying to see where my firm is today as compared to just a couple years ago,” he stated. “Not only have we grown revenue and increased profit margins, but we’ve also elevated the relationships we have with clients and improved how they see the value our firm delivers.”

In addition, Thomson Reuters experts Therese Witherow and Mo Arbas will discuss how they have been helping firms redefine their business model, implement technology tools, and establish workflow practices. Other sessions will cover topics such as product and service development, sales and marketing, operations, firm management, leadership and plan execution.

“Over the years, customers have shared with us just how much of a catalyst for positive change the Partner Summit experience is,” said Scott Fleszar, head of customer proposition for small-mid firms, tax professionals, at Thomson Reuters. “That’s why we quickly sell out these exclusive events every year, as is the case again this year. Demand is high because Partner Summit is a precursor to our innovative and market-proven Practice Forward program. Practice Forward begins with the belief that our profession’s success from today forward rests with a more pronounced advisory role.”

This year’s summits offer attendees the chance to earn 12.5 CPE credits. Dates and locations are as follows:

  • April 30-May 1, 2019 — Albuquerque, New Mexico
  • May 15-16, 2019 — Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
  • June 5-6, 2019 — Branson, Missouri
