Australian Accounting Awards 2022 – Network of the Year ( winner)

Sydney, 16th June 2022 –  we won the Network of the year ( Finalists 2020 + 2021).

President David Dillon had the honour of representing the Virtual CFO Association, getting on stage to accept the award, but this award goes to everyone who has shown faith and supported our struggle to increase awareness and push the VCFO cause.

In a strange twist, David Boyar, one of the original co-founders of the Association presented the gong sponsored by Change GPS.

A transcript of David’s speech :

Well wasn’t expecting that – 3rd time lucky 

Thank you very much everyone. Thanks to Accountants Daily for the award and especially thanks to the Virtual CFO Association members, who make it what it really is, I think this is a vote of confidence in what we’ve all been working towards. 

We want to be known as a resource for Accounting firms, that they can tap into to better serve their clients, enhance you client relationships, reduce risk and make more money. We think that the best value accounting combination for small businesses to have is a bookkeeper, a virtual CFO with Industry experience and a tax accountant working in harmony with each other. Egos to the side and clients at heart. 

Thanks very much

Afterwards,  David said he wished he’d spoken a bit longer. And yes, that’s a kilt David is wearing.

Whilst this is definitely a few rungs below a Nobel Peace Prize, these are the ONLY profession wide awards in Australia and people flew in from all over the country. There were over 500 people in the room and people are starting to notice us.
