Having launched our SMSF days last week, we have now moved into the planning stages for our biggest face-to-face events each year. Running these across 5 capital cities between 24 March to 7 April 2020, we already have over 70 registrations and are well on track to track to hopefully 150+ attendees across the events.
It’s an interesting time for the SMSF sector, with many of us still trying to understand the full breadth of super reforms changes, we’re now seeing new technical areas of concern and opportunities ahead leading into 30 June (and beyond).
So, whilst we believe that there are plenty of reasons as to why you should attend an SMSF day in 2020, we’ve narrowed it down to just seven reasons (taken from attendee feedback) why you need to join us at one of these events:
1. Investing in yourself to keep up-to-date
We know that the biggest challenge confronting professions is stay up-to-date in this ever-changing SMSF landscape. The SMSF Day events are designed for professionals just like you and ensures that you come away from the event knowing about all the latest intel and strategies that are relevant with your SMSF clients today.
2. Highly practical and interactive
The reason why people keep coming back to our SMSF day events each year is the level of interaction with the speakers and the energy you get from being amongst like-minded professionals.
You can’t get this energy and interaction from online events. We want to ensure that you maximise the value of being away from the office for the day and can go back with an head full of ideas with your SMSF clients.
3. Learn from real life case studies
We speak to our members about technical issues every day, helping to work through topics and the challenges that these issues may present. To understand things technically is one thing, but knowing how to apply it is something completely different. And, that’s where our focus is at these events.
Across the day, we will be exploring a range of case studies to help understand key issues or opportunities with your SMSF clients. We are very deliberate in how we setup seating for the events, to allow attendees to work in groups on tables, activating discussion with your peers, and across various professions.
These case studies apply real context that allow you to implement with your clients today!
4. Learn from recognised SMSF education leaders
Smarter SMSF has recently been appointed as an Accredited Educator with the SMSF Association, recognised by our quality of education that sets us apart from other providers.
It’s the brand mark to ensure that you as an attendee are undertaking accredited, quality SMSF education with a focus on continually enhancing your SMSF knowledge.
5. Helping you to keep up your CPD requirements
Maintaining CPD can be a significant challenge, but is an important part of being a professional in today’s financial / professional services landscape.
The event is accredited for CPD with The SMSF Association and FPA Australia. The hours can be applied for FASEA, the Tax Practitioner’s Board (TPB), Major Accounting Bodies (CPA, CA & IPA), plus count towards any SMSF Audit hours requirements.
6. Networking and the energy of like-minded people
One of the reasons people enjoy attending full day training events is the ability to meet like-minded people and industry peers. The SMSF day events brings together SMSF professionals across financial advice, accounting, administrators, auditors, lawyers and more. It provides a great opportunity to share ideas, but importantly allows you to build a professional network to benefit both you and your clients.
7. Hear about and see key tools in action that can help boost your SMSF business
Being a highly technical SMSF day is important to our attendees, however it is important that as professionals we can apply that knowledge into actionable steps with your SMSF clients. This is where the SMSF day helps by showing you HOW things are done. Whether it be through demonstrations of the relevant documents on the Smarter SMSF platform, or with our event partners, our focus is to ensure that you can go back and apply the knowledge back in your business the very next day!
98% of attendees said last year’s SMSF day events met or exceeded their expectations. Stay ahead of curve and register to attend one of our SMSF day events around Australia.
