World-class 2-day events designed for accounting professionals

A Down to Earth Approach Theory is great if you're studying physics or music composition. But when you leave an Upstream Academy conference, you should have key principles, ideas, tips, and processes you can go back to the office and implement–tomorrow. And that's what you'll get.

Great Topics and Presenters For a conference to be more than a day away from the office, sessions need to address today's crucial topics, the things adding extra challenge to your days and occasional sleeplessness to your nights. Our presenters, drawn from both inside the accounting world and beyond, are widely respected, knowledgeable professionals with important insights and experiences to share.
