How will CalCPA's Leadership Programs Impact You?
"There were two key components: the instructor and my peers. The
instructor, Bill Reeb, delivers excellent information, drawing upon
years of experience training accounting firms. But never judge a book by
its cover; once you get over Bill’s Hawaiian shirts and 'external
wallet,' you realize that what he knows is invaluable. I learned a
lifetime’s worth of lessons. The depth of peer interaction is something
no cocktail hour or networking event can provide."
