Women on the Move: An Opportunity for Growth

We’ve written in the past about the continual education our tax and audit teams undergoto keep with both domestic and international tax law.  But one thing we also pride ourselves on at Hall & Companyis personal growth as well.   We can learn everything there is to know about data tables and tax credits, but we also thrive on knowing about ourselves.

Recently, our Tax Operations Manager Jacquie van Doleweerd, and Senior Tax Manager, Anne St. Germain, attended an event put on by JP Morgan Chase.   The event was titled, “Women on the Move,” and it featured Lisa McCarthy, founder, and CEO of the Fast Forward Group.

Here’s a small clip of one of the Fast Forward Group’s recent events.

Lisa discussed how many women were leading companies today.  These companies championed diversity and women in leadership roles.   As Lisa explained, it starts with confidence.

Why is this important?

Because with confidence, comes peace, and better decision-making.   It’s a given that having a better knowledge and ownership of these traits spawns better leadership, but it also helps a better culture within your team.

As better colleagues and better business people, we can deliver a better experience to our clients.

What were the takeaways?

“If you want to make something happen, you have to imagine that it already did.  You have to set a vision, keep checking in on that vision, and make it happen.  No more talking about it; no more saying “when…” Just do it!  Nobody else can make your vision happen except you, said van Doleweerd.

St. Germain added that she loved the event and found it quite helpful.

Why do we need this vision at all levels of our company?   So that we can align with our clients to see what success looks like.   We not only balance our clients’ financials, we strategically plan to improve them in the next year.  We bring the drive, innovation, and creativity to making your company to look its best.

We also believe in the growth of our team to develop not only on a professional level, but a personal level as well.
