From Launchpad: The Future of Accounting and Technology - http://www.meetup.com/Launchpad-The-Future-of-Accounting-Technology/events/225606518/

"Change is hard... damn hard. Particularly in an accounting practice where we have never had to change as fast as we need to in this modern age of cloud technology. With the end of the year looming, it's a great time to plan and implement changes with the downtime before and after Christmas.

We want to bring you a masterclass on how to manage change at your practice, so we thought we'd bring in the guy who's helped change one of the largest software companies in the world to talk to you about the techniques you can use to manage and effect change at your practice.

Nick Muldoon is a proud Aussie that's just returned from a 3 year stint in San Francisco with Atlassian and Twitter, two of the software unicorns (Valuation > $1bn) of the world. Nick mastered the art of agile at Atlassian and then took on the challenge of bringing agile to Twitter's 4,000+ staff at their San Francisco head office."
