Where bookkeepers go to learn, make connections and have fun.
Our incredible community of brilliant bookkeepers communes at the annual Bookkeepers Summit to uncover tactical advice and proven strategies for a successful bookkeeping career and business.
Over 1000 people came together online in November for two days of TED-style talks, live panel discussions, speed networking, social gatherings, competitions, technology exhibitors, and a whole lot of mind-blowing, life-affirming fun.
For its 11th year, the only large-scale event dedicated to bookkeepers went completely virtual. Hosted by the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers and supported by the major names in accounting software and fintech, this event offers an incredible array of talented speakers, actionable insights and unparalleled possibility. Attendees joined a buzzing private social network and experienced a welcome like no other, sharing stories, tips and tactics. We had extra sessions for anyone thinking of starting a bookkeeping business, had just been made redundant or wanted to become a Certified Bookkeeper after studying with AAT.
Eye opening and totally inspirational. The Summit keeps me going for the next year.

What makes the Bookkeepers Summit different?
Our sessions go live on Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 November, but throughout the whole week from Monday to Friday we're celebrating Global Bookkeeping Week
and giving you five days of access
to our dedicated virtual event platform and private social network
to bring the fun back into virtual events. This is not a webinar. This is not an accounting conference. This is the warmest, most connected, community of brilliant bookkeepers coming together to share their love of bookkeeping and consume targeted content to help them be the best they can be.
Socially distanced enhanced
So many bookkeepers together at last! After a challenging year, don't let anything stop you from getting upfront and social with your peers. Set up your event profile and tell us what you're interested in, and our virtual event platform will recommend similar bookkeepers for you to chat with or meet face-to-face in a video call.
You can take a seat in our virtual lounge to meet new people, or post an update in the event social feed. It's just like Facebook but better. If you're feeling shy, or just having one of those days, rest assured you'll never have to share your video unless you want to, and you can even hide your profile from the attendee list and switch off the chat feature.
You can enjoy this year's Bookkeepers Summit on your own terms, from the comfort of your own computer, tablet or smartphone. We can't wait for you to join us to learn, mingle and have fun; to share the joy of bookkeeping no matter what stage of the journey you’re at.
