The first 'Guernsey Means Business' seminar of 2018 was a demonstration of the excellent Xero cloud-based accounting software by Diane de Garis from de garis accounting.

This seminar was hosted at Digital Greenhouse Guernsey on Wednesday 17th January 2018. Diane de Garis, a Xero Gold Partner, spoke to twelve local business leaders about the benefits of cloud accounting.

The presentation was well received, with one attendee providing the following feedback afterwards:

"Just attended a training session with de garis accounting on XERO. It was excellent and delivered in a friendly, easy to understand way. We even had cake! Would recommend to anyone looking for a local accountant in Guernsey." - Tony B

There was delicious cake for the attendees kindly supplied by Lee Coin Bakes.
