Twyla Verhelst
Host - Freshbooks
With a diverse, strategy-focused skill set that spans accounting, entrepreneurship, and software innovation I've made it my mission to inspire others to challenge the way things have always been done with a focus on making an exponential impact on the evolution of the accounting profession and the business owners it serves. I'm a former founder of an advisory-led firm, which means I know first hand the transformative power of technology in delivering high-value client experiences. In fact, I applied this knowledge and expertise while creating Collaborative Accounting™ at FreshBooks, an innovative methodology that fuses technology, people and streamlined workflows. This evolved way of working empowers accountants to deepen their client relationships and unlock their own unique advisory expertise. Doing things differently. Some of my other projects include creating the Women in Accounting Mentorship platform as well as the Video per Day Experiment.
