What others have to say …

This was the best practice management course I have ever taken. Gary Shamis and his stellar team brought their collective "A" game, never a dull moment.

Charles F. (Chuck) Mullen, CPA, CMA, MTax, CGMA. Chairman. Apple Growth Partners

The bootcamp gave me the tools, perspective and peer support group that I needed to take on my new role as CEO. I signed up for the bootcamp because of the content, and left with a new group of colleagues and friends with whom I continue to collaborate with today.

Eric Majchrzak CEO BeachFleischman

The Managing Partner Bootcamp is invaluable to our partner group. It allows our current and future leaders to refine their skills, outlook and perspective on successfully running a professional services firm. The speakers, content and connection have been top notch.

Tommy Lee, CPA Partner-in-Charge, Retail, Franchise & Hospitality at Aprio

Well thought out. You could tell every detail was discussed beforehand. Professional staff are excellent and very helpful and caring.

Joseph Saka, CPA, CFS. CEO. Berkowitz Pollack Brant

MPB is a terrific option for this whom you need to step up and understand how to run any type of professional firm. The camaraderie, setting, and quality of the presenters and topics makes this one of the most impactful personal experiences anyone, who is rising to the level of managing partner or equivalent, can have.

Robert Gialamas, FPC. CEO. CBIZ Paytime

I highly recommend the program. You will not leave the Bootcamp without learning more about yourself and how to lead others. From top to bottom, the program is first rate. I plan on sending one of my firm's future leaders to next year's program.

Loved the military exercises being incorporated.

Always appreciated when real life success stories share their experiences.

 Uros Milekic, CPA, CA. Partner. Fuller Landau

By keeping the attendee list small, we had the opportunity to ask questions and share our thoughts and issues we faced. It also allowed us to learn how other firms function. Having the full focus of the expertise of the presenters we were offered tips and knowledge gained from years of their success and in some ceased failures, condensed into a reasonable two-sessionss of two days.

Brenda Hood. Chief Compliance Officer. Dakota Wealth Management (formerly Springside Partners)

You have done a great job in developing this bootcamp and the content. I did not know what to expect. I attended many programs and thought this would be another one that I might come out gaining "something." However, I cam away with much more. I really enjoyed it.

Richard Crabtree, CPA, PFS. Managing Partner. Whalen & Company, CPAs

The entire program was outstanding. Really appreciate the effort that went into developing a curriculum and recruiting expert instructors. At most conferences, there are usually a few high points with a lot of "filler," but this program was solid throughout.

Chris Meshginpoosh, CPA, CGMA. Managing Director. Kreisher Miller

I loved the bootcamp (exercise portion). It is really important and I like how it was completed.

Some of the topics gave me a new perspective and I appreciated the experience of Gary and the rest of the group.

An excellent tool to build on your leadership skills.

Great discussions on ways to better communicate with employees and foster a learning/positive culture in your firm.

The peer group os one of the most valuable tools. One thing that I love is that you move our seats every day. Forces us to interact with different people every day.

Loved the content; spot on!

Kreg Brown, CPA, CGMA. Partner. Plante Moran (formerly EKSH)  

The class afforded me the opportunity to sit with like-minded individuals, who all brought a wealth of knowledge to further benefit each attendee. The class is well put together and prepared. The presenters are all at the top of their profession and field. I now have more tools to bring back to my firm.
