What They’re Saying

  • My ultimate takeaway at Scaling New Heights is that I get to network with Woodard Network members who love to collaborate with each other to help build their respective practices. It is the most unselfish and knowledgeable group of people that I ever worked with! A highlight of the conference is the keynote address and other sessions featuring the great people from Intuit who share with us the long term direction of the company and its fabulous products. 90% of my current active client base, mostly wineries, originated from my networking activities. I work with many wineries as the direct result of an Intuit referral.

  • If you've ever attended a Scaling New Heights conference you won't hesitate to go again, but without that firsthand experience you might wonder if it's worth the time and cost. My gosh, it is SO worth it! Not only for the top notch training sessions, the chance to meet third party software developers whose integrated solutions expand the power of QuickBooks, and the fabulous ProAdvisor networking opportunities, but also because it's just plain FUN. The venues, the food, the entertainment, the prizes and the special activities are all great. Oh boy, can Joe put on a show!

  • The Gateway Course has made me look at our practice and take a hard look at our vision, mission, and purpose as well as taking a hard look at myself.  I am finally doing all my media profiles.  I now have someone holding me accountable.

    JEANNE REISER
  • My partner and I both attended, and we left the session feeling inspired. We appreciate the way the Boot Camp helped to refined the direction of our practice.

    Lindsay Hiken
  • I am attending again. I walked away from prior Scaling New Heights conferences with knowledge about QuickBooks and add-ons that I could put to immediate use. But more importantly, I walked away with new contacts and friends that I can call on for assistance. Scaling New Heights conference fee $ Travel Expenses $ Professional contacts and resources PRICELESS.

  • Now that the Scaling New Heights organization has transformed its brand to Woodard, I find it even more focused upon a Mission, Purpose and Vision.  When I first joined the National Advisor Network in late 2010 and built my “chapter” into one of the largest in the nation, I was excited about the concept of networking with other consultants to help each other build our practices.  Since then, my Woodard Group has been my foundation for winning and preserving clients through networking, leading-edge education, and working through issues on the Woodard Network discussion threads.  I currently acquire over 80% of my new clients through networking.  I have learned from Joe Woodard that the 3 N’s - Networking, Niche and kNowledge are the road to success.

  • 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
  • The annual Scaling New Heights conference is essential to expanding our knowledge of QuickBooks, assessing third party add-on products available, planning and implementing our Practice and Leadership Development, and preparing for certifications. The conference has compelled us to research and adopt advanced technologies and improved our accounting methods. The education, training and products we have integrated from the Scaling New Heights conferences allow us to offer higher level, mid-market accounting services. Our (22) employees now lobby to attend this conference each year!

  • The course changed me for the better in so many ways. It made me stop and analyze subjects that I have never considered before. It made me look very deep within myself to look at the good and the bad aspects. The best thing is that there are ways to improve those bad traits. The course was life changing me for. Thank you Joe.

  • I enjoyed the smaller attendance of the Boot Camp because it allowed me to get to know not only the attendees but also the instructors. While Scaling New Heights is always a huge event you don't have as much time to socialize with the instructors...these people are our mentors and to have that time to meet them is invaluable.

    Sharon Campbell
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Dawn Fotopulos provides a simple, easy to follow method of analyzing financial statements that can very quickly produce more profits for our clients.  I used her method of explaining financial statements as explained in Accounting for the Numberphobic with one of my clients whose eyes would glaze over when I talked numbers.  All of a sudden his eyes lit up and he “got it!”  It changed his outlook, and he was able to see how small changes produce big results!  I highly recommend “Increasing Profits 50% in Four Weeks” to all serious ProAdvisors.
