Keith Gormezano - Intuit Premier Reseller
Membership in Intuit Product Support Councils
I am a member of Intuit's (the folks who make TurboTax, Quicken, and QuickBooks to name a few products) Accountant, TurboTax, Small Business, and Quicken's Inner Circles which advises the company on ways to improve their products and make them more consumer friendly (gasp!).
I pointed out a bug in an older version of QuickBooks Pro and suggested a programming code change to fix it.
I also have made over 29 product suggestions to Intuit over the last five years.
Besides helping over 1,139 businesses in the last nine years, I taught seminars or classes in the "Ten Things You Need to Do to Set Up Your Start Up's Books Correctly" at the quarterly Renton Almost Free Biz School and accounting and bookkeeping fundamentals at the Six Hour Start Up Conference.
I have also been asked to teach classes at Seattle Central Community College and Bellevue College (formerly Bellevue Community College). I was the subject of an article Spotlight on a QuickBooks Instructor: Teaching Small Businesses to Fish on the TeachStreet Blog. TeachStreet was a web site that brought together local teachers and inquiring students.
I have a Bachelor's degree from the University of Iowa where I was on the Dean's List. I completed two years of law school at Seattle University where I was nominated to be the graduation speaker nominee
before I "escaped".
Additional Continuing Education to Stay Current
I attend annual accounting solutions and accounting conferences. I have accummulated over 24 voluntary CPEs in 2017, 32 in 2016, 26 in 2015, 39 in 2014, 44 in 2013, and 52 in 2012 to stay informed on the software I use and related third party applications, trends, and developments. I don't see how I can help you if I am uninformed.
