The 2011 rules require Cashroom Managers to be responsible for the staff and systems employed by the practice unit. That person is also required to use reasonable endeavours to acquire and maintain the necessary skills, and to train or arrange for training of all officers and employees so far as their duties involve compliance with accounts rules. The seminar will begin with a presentation on Account Rules, inspections and current issues of concern and will continue with two workshop sessions on the practical application of the rules. Cashroom Manager responsibilities will be discussed and guidance will be given on completion of the Accounts Certificate. There will also be time for questions.

How do you walk into a room full of strangers, introduce yourself and establish a successful connection? Do you avoid “working the room” and stick to the familiar faces? Do you return with lots of business cards but aren’t really sure of what to do with them? If you can relate to any of these scenarios, you are not alone. We all network but few of us have been taught these skills as we are expected to simply “get the hang of it”. The session is designed as a highly interactive, informative and fun workshop aimed at reducing the gamble of networking and raising your game to produce more profitable results. At this workshop we will provide the practical answers to these questions and more, with expert feedback and guidance from the best in the business.
