I’m delighted to be part of the Maryland Business and Accounting Expo, to be held in Baltimore on June 17-18, 2008. Here’s a the description from the Website:
Join us along with 1,000 CPA and business professionals from across Maryland and Washington DC for two days of outstanding education (90+ sessions), networking, and business-to-business meetings with 100 exhibitors and sponsors in the resource center. The Maryland Business & Accounting Expo (MD Biz Expo) is designed to provide up-to-the-minute resources and tools to help your company or organization deal with business challenges and find and seize new opportunities.
I’ll be presenting on Value Pricing, as well as a new topic I’m really excited about–“The Ten Business Books (You Must Read)”. This presentation is an adaptation of a full 8 hour CPE course I am currently developing with my VeraSage colleague Dan Morris, tentatively titled “The 100 Best Business Books of All Time.” We’ll be teaching this longer course for the Maryland Association of CPAs’ Business Learning Institute on July 18, 2008.
Since we at VeraSage get so many questions about the books we cite, read and discuss, we thought it would be fun to put together our top 100 favorite business books. The criteria was the book had to either change your thinking permanently or your behavior. In other words, it had to have a significant impact on your life. It’s a bit tough to limit it to just business books, but we are trying. My list is currently around 170, so I need to do some cutting, which is not easy. But then again, we aren’t really limited to just 100.
In the future, we will share with our community an incredibly effective resource that will enable you to see what we’ve read, our reviews, what we are currently reading, and even plan to read. Stay tuned.
