Who We Are
Our vision is to transform small business through small business advisors.
Woodard exists to transform small business advisors to radically impact the way small businesses operate. Each business unit of Woodard serves to educate, support, and connect accounting professionals throughout North America and, increasingly, throughout the world. Led by Joe Woodard, CEO, Woodard Events, LLC, these business units are our pillars of which we operate: Education, Coaching, Resources and Community.
At Woodard we exist to do the following for small business advisors:
• We educate small business advisors to provide the highest levels of value for their clients and, in the process, strengthen their practices.
• We coach small business advisors to create distinction, standardize processes, transcend accounting, and transform small businesses.
• We inspire small business advisors with on-demand, highly relevant resources.
• We encourage small business advisors through peer-driven communities, accountability, and information exchange.
In every action we perform, Woodard is inspired by (and measured against) a simple but powerful purpose statement: “We empower small business advisors.”
