“Rise of the Advisor” is a rally cry to bookkeepers, accounting technologists, tax preparers, CPAs and other small business advisors to act on the challenges we issued at the last four conferences:
Modernize Your Practice (SNH 2016 – “The Epic Practice”)
Break through Barriers (SNH 2017 – “Face the Yeti”)
Leverage Technology (SNH 2018 – “Tame the Machines”)
Transform Your Clients (SNH 2019 – “The Transformative Advisor”)
Over the coming year, the focus of Scaling New Heights 2020 (and our new year-round Woodard Empowerment Package) turns to action…to providing you with the tools and training you need to build highly effective, wealth-generating relationships with your clients.
This is your moment. This is your story.
This is your time to rise!

As technology improves for accounting, it is making it easier to collect data. We need experts to shape it and make sense of it so our clients can make smart decisions.Carrie Kahn, Complete Business Group
Everything I’ve been working for since 1992 is at last coming together as one in the Rise of the Advisor this year. It’s a must-be-at 4 days for any Practice Owner who’s concerned about securing a powerful future for the profession AND a legacy for themselves.Paul Dunn
Over the next three years accountants must decide if they want to be heroes. Whether to rise or to fall. And research suggests that a perfect storm of forces will lead all genuinely forward thinking, caring and entrepreneurial practitioners to:
• Become “Businesses For Good” by putting doing good around the UN Global Goals at the heart of their business strategy
• Measure, manage, increase and be accountable for their impact
• Provide new services, and earn new fees, by inspiring, encouraging and helping other businesses to do the same
The technology and methodologies already being used by ground-breaking practices make doing all of this easy, quick, joyful, affordable and profoundly impactful. They also make it profitable.
So, all good accountants will see the sense. All good accountants will RISE. And all good accountants will become heroes.
The movement will become unstoppable. And, as a result, accountants will play a leadership role in making things better for themselves, their clients, their teams, their families, their communities, their economies and people in need at home and around the world.
Clearly, there has never been a more exciting, more rewarding or more important time to be an accountant.

Everyone on the SNH team works really hard to make each year special.Mark Hornek
Overall good variety of technical classes and personal development, and time for main stage and vendors.Lisa Ortquist
This was my first time at SNH and I was very impressed. Joe's passion was contagious and really drove the momentum of the conference. The Yeti but was a little overly theatrical but I applaud the effort to keep the group engaged and look forward to doing this again next year and bringing some of my staff along with me!Kyle Pearson
Can't say enough about the quality and applicability of SNH training in my business and in my life.Dieneke Heerema
I believe the Woodard Group is a true supporter and advocate for ProAdvisors and our businesses! Thank you for all you do!Heather Hudson
LOVED IT! Met tons of friends, new & old. Connected with several new people who have gone through or are going through the same challenges I am. Most of the breakouts I went to were fantastic - practical, technical, and pointed me in the right direction.Soochie Sabol
They really stepped up the conference. I was so pleased that all of the sessions were not sales pitches and full of excellent content that was executable. Tons of information and an excellent time to network. Great balance so that there was time to meet with your peers.Jan Vuicich
I agree. Love how much exhibit hall time was built in and that the evenings weren't over-scheduled so we had time to break off and do what we wanted.Stacey Byrne
I watched main stage on Woodward.tv and really benefited from hearing Les McKeown again. Love Mark Wickersham only wish I was there to here what the price on the package was and if he got the contract. Matt Rissell bringing his family up and keeping it real. Glad he is doing well. Every vendor can learn so much from Tsheets support and their Promise - to make us look great to every client. I can't remember his exact words - but the promise is real.Jill Frillman
It being my first accounting conference ever, my mind was blown the first day I got there. It was so encouraging, enlightening, and excited for me! Yes, I'm a newbie, and the way I receive it will be different than some of the seasoned SNH veterans. I walked away with so much content I am still going through it all! But most importantly, I came home with a renewed sense of self - a confirmation that this is my calling 🙂Megan Burger
Joe, you and your staff do such a great job. I always come away with so much each year. Thanks.Cherri Rapp
Thanks so much...great job Woodard team!!Katherine Wynne-Jones
The is the best overall conference I have attended, well worth my investment.Patty Ramus
