Martha Stewart Official Blog, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.
66-million consumers are touched by her or her brand every month. 67% of American women credit her for helping to pioneer the home and lifestyle industry. 53% name her as the first person who comes to mind when thinking of the home and lifestyle industry. Who is she? Obviously the answer is Martha Stewart.
Martha Stewart is the woman America turns to when they want to learn how to decorate their homes for the holiday season, fix a broken windowpane, make the perfect pie crust, or plant a herb garden. She is the founder and chairwoman of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. She will be joining fellow business leaders on the main stage of Intuit’s QuickBooks Connect being held October 21-23 in San Jose, California.
Through her award-winning magazine Martha Stewart Living, an Emmy Award-winning television show, a Web site, syndicated newspaper columns, national radio show, mail-order catalog and product lines, Martha shares the creative principles and practical ideas that have made her America's most trusted guide to stylish living. Martha Stewart Living has been honored with numerous awards, including three National Magazine Awards, more than 50 Society of Publication Designers Awards, and the Acres of Diamonds Awards for Magazine Development.
You can be sure that Martha will not only discuss her own business and vision for the future, but will do so with what can only be described as “Martha Stewart style’. This is an opportunity of a lifetime; you won’t want to miss what Martha has to say.
QuickBooks Connect is expected to attract thousands of accounting professionals, QuickBooks ProAdvisors, small businesses, entrepreneurs and developers. The event includes not only keynote addresses and inspirational messages from individuals such as Intuit CEO Brad Smith and Intuit Founder Scott Cook, but Marc Andreessen, cofounder and partner of Silicon Valley venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz.
QuickBooks Connect is so much more than an accounting conference or software event, it is designed to bring together leaders of every facet of life and blend the various aspects of the Intuit ecosystem into a harmonious opportunity to share. The speaker lineup reinforces this concept; you won’t just find stuffy old accountants or software vendors pushing their products. People like author and television personality Bill Ranicic along with Arianna Huffington, chair, president and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post, as well as Kevin Cleary, CEO of Clif Bar & Company, and Charles Best, founder and CEO of Donorschoose.org will all provide motivation and inspirational messages to those in attendance.
But main stage presentations are not the only source of ‘connection’ at QuickBooks Connect. This event will also provide attendees with tailored breakout sessions for small business, entrepreneurs, accounting professionals, and software developers. These interactive sessions will allow participants to learn from established leaders and experts in real-time via hands-on curriculum and content. Best of all you are not ‘stuck’ in a single track; those attending have the freedom to pick-n-choose from all the sessions being offered.
QuickBooks Connect will bring together the people and businesses necessary to make attendees’ dreams a reality. The event will provide an engaging, immersive experience with unique activities for every participant, not to mention the opportunity to see and hear Martha Stewart in person. I mean when did that ever happen at an “old accounting software conference?”
It’s not too late to register for QuickBooks Connect. The $199 registration fee ($169 for certified QuickBooks ProAdvisors) covers your main conference pass. While you are at the Conference Website be sure to check-out the optional pre-and post-conference activities that are being offered at an additional cost.
