PRACTICE EFFICIENCY IS THE WAY TO CONFRONT RECESSION

DIGITA CONFERENCE SPEAKERS TO GIVE TOP TIPS

The seventh Digita Annual Conference is expected to attract a lot of attention as practitioners look for support during the recession.

Speakers including Graham Bushby, a partner in the Business Recovery team at Baker Tilly and John Painter managing partner of Crowther Beard LLP, will specifically address the issues that face practitioners and their clients at a time when the recession looks like deepening rather than levelling off.

Graham Bushby, whose talk is entitled ‘Weathering the economic storm – tools and strategies to help your clients survive’, said:

"The last quarter of 2008 saw a massive rise of over 50% in the number of corporate insolvency's compared to the last quarter of 2007 and some are predicting the worst is yet to come.

"Certainly 2009 will go down as a bleak year for many companies. Success or failure in this economic downturn is likely to be determined by the ability of management and stakeholders to implement innovative survival strategy's and make tough, but informed decisions with speed."

John Painter added:

"Practices can maintain and even increase their profitability in these difficult times. I hope to use Digita’s conference to introduce some ideas that will assist practitioners to decide in which direction they want to go and management tools that will help them make the often difficult decisions on how to get there.

"Digita’s conference provides the ideal platform to achieve this as it attracts delegates from across the sector from Top 10 firms to sole practitioners. It is a unique opportunity to discuss the issues of the day, business strategies and plans for growth."

The conference will also feature keynote speakers from Companies House and HMRC updating delegates on the latest developments of e-filing and Carter.

The Digita Annual Conference takes place at the Forrest of Arden Hotel, near Coventry, on 26/27 March 2009. Further information is available by contacting Karen Gardner on 01395 270 311 (kareng@digita.com) or by visiting http://www.digita.com/conference2009..
