What They’re Saying

  • With the Woodard Institute's Gateway Course, I have been able to develop my vision for my company, to learn more about myself and my leadership style, to manage staff better, and best of all to learn how to manage my clients. I got so much more out of the course than I expected. Joe Woodard shared powerful content to make us better ProAdvisors and better people. I highly recommend this course. It is a game-changer.

  • 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
  • 2013 was my first Scaling New Heights, and I can honestly say that this conference transformed my practice. Scaling New Heights provided a unique opportunity to focus exclusively on QuickBooks related products and services. The exposure to the latest practice management techniques, training and networking opportunities exceeded every expectation. I returned from Scaling New Heights with the skills, motivation, confidence and energy needed to make my practice more profitable and am looking forward to attending in 2014 with my staff. Scaling New Heights was one of my best business investments in 2013.

    Silvia Evans
  • 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
  • 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!

    Tom Testerson
  • 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.

    Pete Bornstein
  • The Gateway Course directly fits to my goal to re-evaluate and restructure my business. Now I have specific steps I can apply. Thanks!

    JOAN SHUMAKER
  • Glad I went to Scaling New Heights. I was skeptical at first because I'm taking on some big clients and didn't think I'd have the bandwidth to leave for a few days. What I took away from the conference far outweighs the skepticism I had.

    Matt Rohlack
  • To be empowered as a Pro-Advisor, there is no better training, hands down, than Woodard Institute.

  • 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
  • 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!

    Karen Mora
  • 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 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

    Caren Schwartz
  • 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!
