BECOME AN AMBASSADOR
If you’re confident and have experience of running network meetings or keen to learn and would like to become part of this new initiative, we’d love to hear from you.
You’ll be supported by us at the IAB and provide feedback and findings from each meeting helping us support you and your group plus the wider members.
We’ve already set up groups across the whole of the UK to help support IAB members and we’d love you to be part of this.
GET SUPPORT TO BUILD YOUR PRACTICE
Being part of a group will help gain even more support and build a close network with other bookkeepers.
Ambassador Groups have a maximum of 6 people, including the Ambassador and each meeting will be 1 hour long via Zoom.
It’s your chance to gain valuable support from your fellow members where together you can grow your practices.
By being part of a group, you will have the opportunity to voice your views and help shape the future of the IAB.
Being an IAB Ambassador has been so interesting and rewarding. By stepping forward to be involved in this program, I have opened doors for myself to receive endless support for my business. I feel an equal member to my group and we all look forward to meeting to support each other on future topics and current day to day situations. I have the opportunity to give feedback to the IAB that has very quickly shaped the support offered to all members, we have a voice into the heart of the IAB and we reap the rewards of all their support.
A small group of likeminded people, who face similar challenges on a daily basis was something I wanted to be part of pre-Covid, but it was difficult finding bookkeepers in the same situation as me. That’s all changed thanks to the IAB coffee mornings. These were a godsend during the pandemic and out of the coffee mornings came our lovely little group we call the ‘Bijou Coffee Club’. Every member of the group is important and would be missed if they weren’t there. We have become a close-knit group that give each other the support that only people in our situation understand. I would urge anyone contemplating joining a group to definitely give it a try.
I run a small bookkeeping and payroll practice and have over 30 years experience working in practice and industry. One main thing that I have learned over the years is its good to help others and not be afraid to ask for help from other bookkeepers and accountants. Being an Ambassador for the IAB enables me to do this. The members in my group are friendly and approachable and we always have fun on our meetings and of course we have the support of the IAB which is great.
It has been a pleasure and privilege to run an Ambassador Group for the IAB. Since starting our group we have become a friendly, enthusiastic and supportive bunch. We all come from different backgrounds and have different specialities and experiences, but it is a great opportunity to share ideas, discuss challenges and offer help and encouragement to each other on a regular basis.
For me being an IAB Ambassador is about passing on my experience as a bookkeeper and business owner to others, supporting them in their business journey and getting support and new ideas from other bookkeepers. In our very new group, nobody has the same type of clients or interests but we all had shared motives and ideals and instantly found that we shared the same challenges every day.
I regularly attend coffee mornings and have just become an Ambassador in one of the small groups.
I am benefiting from this involvement as I see my company growing and I no longer feel isolated.
I will be taking full advantage of the support offered by IAB and hope that my contribution will be of value.
As soon as I heard about the ambassador program I knew I wanted to be involved and being an ambassador for the IAB has been an opportunity to engage and support others in the accounting and bookkeeping industry. Our group meetings are a chance to discuss the challenges and offer support for each other’s businesses in a friendly, informal environment. Going forward, I am hoping my involvement can help shape the IAB so it can benefit each one of our members and I am excited for the future.
To be an ambassador is a huge honour. As this is a reflection of the respect I have among my peers at the IAB and the duty required by me. Off the back of this I am humbled and work toward the betterment of my career and practice. To work with others and help bridge the gap between members and my self is truly a humbling experience and I hope to honour and uphold the work conducted by the IAB
I am so pleased to have been given the role of Ambassador with the IAB for so many reasons! The online bookkeeping community grew hugely through the pandemic and the support that I had and still have from other people in the same position was invaluable. The ambassador group is my opportunity to get involved in this way with other members of IAB from a ‘community over competition’ perspective and to support each other on our business journeys. These groups are a great channel of communication between the IAB leadership team and their Members which is so important for both.
I am so passionate about the Accounting industry, I believe this role will give me the opportunity to help, advise and develop the current and future bookkeepers. The bookkeepers deserve to have recognition for what they bring to the sector. Accountants and Companies need great bookkeepers if IAB is the stepping stone I would like to be there on the journey.
