If 20 incredible speakers, a warm destination, outstanding networking opportunities and experiential learning from leaders in the tax and financial services industry don’t compel you to register – 2018 attendee comments on this year’s educational sessions certainly will!
Katherine Sabine, DFA – Tax Services Specialist from Alberta, found value in Dr. Jack Mintz’s discussion on Canada’s competitiveness: “It was interesting to hear that the Canadian government needs to establish a solution to stimulate business in Canada in response to the recent U.S. tax changes. U.S. tax reform has significant worldwide effects – including Canada’s competitive disadvantage. It’s important information to have when working with U.S. clients going forward.”
Here’s what Tammie Gilbert, tax professional from British Columbia, had to say about Evelyn Jacks’ session on working above our privilege: “Evelyn Jacks was an excellent speaker, as always! This session offered a great selection of topics and outline of the changes coming. I especially appreciated the information on carbon tax, climate change incentives, and how to work above our privilege. The team will apply what we learned to better get to know our clients, and address our responsibilities to them. I’ll apply the steps to work as a tax intermediator, which will also help me focus on growing my business.”
Kamla Lambert from Winnipeg, currently working on her DFA – Tax Services Specialist designation, commented on Dr. Michael Geist’s session on cybersecurity and privacy: “This topic selection was very timely! The information on better understanding consumer and individual rights, and the lack of privacy rules that exist, was especially eye-opening. I will be putting more focus on working to protect client data to a much greater degree.”
Registration is open and sponsorship opportunities are available for DAC 2019!
