About 200 accounting practice leaders gathered yesterday at the opening of TOAcon, the annual event where TOA Global brings together the best in the accounting industry.  

“We are excited to spend this time with our clients and industry partners,” said TOA Global Founder and CEO Nick Sinclair.

 “Over the next two days, some of the most inspiring world-class speakers one could ask for will share with us their research and experiences that will help us adapt to changes more quickly, see our opportunities more clearly, and lead more effectively.”

This year’s TOAcon theme is “Transform Yourself, Transform Your Business”. TOA Global is hosting the annual conference in Australia for the first time, as the event coincides with the company’s 10th year in the accounting outsourcing business.
