What They’re Saying

  • Woodard Institute was a launch pad for my business to grow. Our business opportunities and growth start with ourselves, who we are and what we are trying to accomplish in our world. I will use Joe Woodard's insights and tools to grow my business and I look forward to more educational moments with the Woodard Institute!

  • As a co-leader and member of our local Woodard Group since its inception, I have enjoyed the friendships that I’ve made through our group. I know that I always have a colleague that I can contact if I have a question regarding a software best practice or a practice management question.  I love the ability to collaborate with someone that does what I do.  I also have enjoyed the additional educational experience that is brought to our group and shared. Each and every month I learn something new from someone in our group that helps me grow my own practice and improve my skills.

  • What I love about being in Woodard Network is the camaraderie with other like-minded people. Even though I am alone in my office, I have a network worldwide I can count on. The sharing and caring of the people is beyond measure. Not only are these people accounting colleagues - they are my closest friends.

  • Scaling New Heights gives us the opportunity to learn and network like no other seminar event. For those of us with small practices it also gives us the incomparable assurance that "we are not alone" in our industry. The sharing of knowledge and expertise amongst these generous, caring individuals is unmatched in my 20 years as a business professional. Going to this conference will give you the competitive advantage that will put you at the front of the pack.

    Kathy Zaroczynski
  • I joined the Woodard Network to be able to network with others. When I have a client with a problem, or I am having a QB issue I have never run into, I can shoot out a message and others from all over the country can help me out. It would be hard for me to give up my daily emails to see what relevant issues people are talking about in the Woodard Network world. The software references are the best part for me. It is almost like a news feed on current software, its abilities and related applications.

  • Scaling New Heights lives up to its name every year. It keeps getting better and better. The training, the vendors and the very talented, helpful attendees have helped me bring my practice to a new level. The real beneficiaries are my clients. Now we see QuickBooks as part of an eco-system that helps them bring their businesses to new heights.

    Sharon McNeal
  • This event is a win win (education for me and take away resources for clients)! The conference is a journey. Pack up your gear and set out on an adventure of a lifetime, IT IS "Scaling New Heights."

    Deborah Defer
  • As usual, an offering from Joe Woodard and his associates exceeded my expectations. I am new to owning my own business and the Gateway course has provided a foundation on which to build the vision, mission and purpose I have for my business.

  • Woodard Institute was a launch pad for my business to grow. Our business opportunities and growth start with ourselves, who we are and what we are trying to accomplish in our world. I will use Joe Woodard's insights and tools to grow my business and I look forward to more educational moments with the Woodard Institute!

  • This class was what I needed to gain a better understanding of what my clients are perceiving as my job vs. their job.  I think clients sometimes believe that we are analyzing their products and services when we are looking at data after the fact.

  • If you are willing to explore your professional relationships with clients and your team this course is a must.

  • Your organization is highly valuable to me. When I engage with Woodard I not only learn, I also get motivated to do new things...and I get the structure I need to follow through.

    Judy Borland
  • The best thing about Scaling New Heights conference was the fact that when I left there I was QBO certified. Upon completion of the QBO class we were told that we could stay and take the exam, while Dan from Intuit monitored the room. Thank you Dan and Intuit. Maybe next year's conference will build upon this!

    Debra Veilleux
  • Woodard Network is more than a group of accountants and consultants coming together for a common cause. It is a business catalyst. The combined experience of the members, along with guidance and mentoring from the trainers and leadership team, enable you to improve and grow your business. It's a great investment!

    Marjorie AdamsFourlane
  • The best investment I ever made in turning my practice away from tax prep.  Dawn provided all the tools, laser-focused education, real-world case studies, support & encouragement – everything you need to start increasing your client’s profits by 50% in four weeks, even conversation starters and leading questions.
