On November 15th, 2022 Liz and Heather kicked off the Post Camp Campfire Chat series! The Campfire Chats is a special edition to bring in the camp sponsors and share some of the “since camp” updates and what their teams have been up to. In this episode, they were joined by the Intuit team who attended camp with us!
Ted announced his new role with Intuit as Director of Accountant Partnership and Strategy. Bringing the voice of the accountant community into building campaigns and supporting accountants has been his focus.
Kim has been with Intuit for 13 years supporting accountants and bookkeepers! Vinayak is a product manager and has been with Intuit going on 8 years and Liz mentioned his passion for the community! Joe has been looking after commerce for Quickbooks online. Ryan is a group product manager in accounting automation in QuickBooks, making bookkeeping more accessible to small businesses and QuickBooks more approachable.
Collaboration was one major part of the camp. Ryan explained that from camp he had 12 pages of notes! He shared his 3 big things; recommitting themselves to the accountant community by hosting compliance groups and mini teams. Christina Pang is working on the chart of accounts and general ledger with 4 experts to be a counsel for her to get added insight. Accountant mindset and how changes are going to be impacting accountants. Being able to reach out to an account user and hear their voice was always a bing for Ryan and he wants to bring that back for the newer folks. And finally the usability and bugs within the product. They have been hosting product improvement days and discussing what needs to be fixed, making sure they are priorities.
Everyone discussed what a fun time Appy Camp was, being together with everyone, and all of the panel questions and conversations that went on at camp. This is such a major part of our community!
This episode didn’t have a drink, but everyone at camp knows we all had plenty of drinks to go with our fires, singalongs, and bonding!
