By PRLeap staff, February 13, 2017

Donny Shimamoto was announced as the featured educator for a SageWorks webinar, Unlocking Insights: Benchmarking for Client Acquisition & Retention. The session will help attendees understand how better information results in more informed decision making and ultimately gives the organization a competitive advantage. This free webinar will be held on February 14th at 10am PT, and offers 1 CPE credit.

He has worked on several international collaborations between the AICPA and CIMA related to business intelligence and is also a frequent speaker on how management accountants can help add-value to their organizations via CGMA webcasts. 

Donny will explore how benchmarking can be added to a CPA practice to increase the value provided to clients and provide two case studies of leading firms who have incorporated benchmarking for success. "Benchmarking is a critical aspect of creating value-added services for a CPA firm as it provides the client with a view of how they are performing relative to their peers." Donny continued, "Forward adopting firms have implemented these tools to have greater client conversion and retention. The CPA practices that want growth in 2017 should attend this course to learn how."
