Winning in front of 3,000 of your peers is hard to beat. Xero award winners also go on to attract better staff, find new clients and grow their practice.
Don’t just take our word – hear from some of last year’s winners about how winning a Xero award has helped them.
Alex Falcon, founder of Soaring Falcon Accountancy won Xero Most Valued Professional award.
This award recognises an individual who made an awesome contribution to the accounting profession.
What did it mean to you to win a Xero award?
To be recognised for my work in the accounting industry was incredible! Xero is geared for today’s business owners and being part of this story is something that I’m hugely proud of.
I’ve also received great support from Xero, which has helped me build a recognisable brand. There is no way I would have been able to achieve this without the help from Xero.
How has being a Xero award winner helped your practice?
I’ve attracted even more global recognition through winning a Xero award. I’m seen as a trusted ‘go to person’ for advice from ecosystem partners, clients, and even other accountants.
Not only have I achieved significant growth in revenue, but I’ve also increased client and staff numbers. Since then, we’ve attracted some amazing talent to join the firm. This includes some young entrepreneurial employees who are now starting their Level 7 ACCA apprenticeship.
“The benefits and recognition you will receive from being a winner far exceeds the time spent writing your entry form.”
Why should other Xero partners enter?
Xero is the global leader in accounting software. To be recognised in this way is a huge achievement and one that prospects, clients, and staff will love.
The benefits and recognition you’ll receive from being a Xero award winner will far exceed the time spent writing your entry form. My advice is to take full advantage of the help and support from Xero as you work towards achieving your goals.
Will Farnell, founder of Farnell Clarke, won the 100% Xero award. Will runs his business entirely on Xero, demonstrating the value of Xero’s streamlined ecosystem every day.
Why did you enter the Xero awards?
At Farnell Clarke, we’re all committed to Xero and winning an award in this way is a great testament to all of the hard work done by the team.
What did it mean to win a Xero award?
Winning a Xero award is a great indicator to our staff and clients that we’re a key Xero partner and a leading innovator in the industry. It further strengthens our reputation amongst the Xero team and enhances our industry profile in the UK and globally.
How has winning a Xero award helped your practice?
It’s provided us with great PR opportunities and allows us to add a real credibility to prospects that we’re a leading Xero firm. It’s also given me the right credentials to publish a book on digital transformation in the accounting industry and development of advisory and consulting services to other accounting firms.
“Winning or even being shortlisted for a Xero award is great recognition…”
Would you recommend other Xero partners to enter the Xero awards, and why?
Firms make significant commitments to transition their clients to Xero. Winning or even being shortlisted for a Xero award is great recognition of this commitment. It also provides excellent access to marketing and PR opportunities, as well as success to share with your team. We wholeheartedly recommend firms take the time to enter the awards.
Don’t just win, win big.
As well as collecting a trophy on stage, as a winner or runner-up, you’ll be given marketing tools to promote your achievement. Plus you’ll get a free ticket to Xerocon 2019!
Perhaps best of all, your practice will have a prominent position on our Xero advisor directory, where you’ll receive hundreds of referrals from small businesses looking for a Xero expert.
Award entries close on Friday 19 October at 5 pm.
We’ll present the awards at Xerocon London on Wednesday 14 November 2018. You don’t have to be at Xerocon to win, but how cool would it be celebrating your success at the Xerocon party – the biggest accountancy shindig of the year.
