That’s A Wrap! 6 Highlights of Receipt Bank Exchange Australia 2019

This year, Receipt Bank did a company-first. We took a select group of Australian partners away from their desks for an immersive learning experience, to share best practices to help them continue to build their firms.

The experience took place at the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort in Port Douglas for three days. Against a luxury setting, Receipt Bank partners met like-minded professionals, established friendships over rainy rainforest tours, attended educational masterclasses and more.

Rather than tell you, we thought it best to show you. Here are just some of the highlights.



Eight-time world surfing champion, Layne Beachley, delivered an incredible keynote sharing her inspirational story and insights. An advocate for kindness, grit and resilience, it was a true honour to have her at the Exchange.









Would it be a Receipt Bank trip without a splash of orange?



Before co-founder, Alexis Prenn, had his first coffee, a Receipt Bank partner, Penny, told him her story of using Receipt Bank. She doubled her income, halved her workload, and with the extra time and money, founded and funded a school in Africa for 105 children.

It's stories like these that demonstrate the transformational power of technology. We can talk as much as we like about efficiency, key performance indicators and process. Yet, this is the sum of all those parts.

“From the time we arrived at the airport to the time we left each other, there was not one complaint. I can’t even count the smiles and laughs we shared. They say children smile about 400 times a day … yet adults only manage 20. We blew that out of the water.”

“It has been immensely rewarding for me both as a practitioner and a small business-owner to have serious, quality time not only with my peers but also industry leaders. It shows how much the team at Receipt Bank truly value their partners - and I’m not just talking about the accountants and big boys but also us little guys. No other software company offers us a reward for supporting them even though the support we give them is fairly small in the financial scheme of things.

I can’t remember the last time perfect balance between professional development and relaxation was nailed. It gives us bookkeepers who work so hard and alone something to look forward to every year that is not going to cost us a fortune and we know we’re going to get a huge amount of it.”

Alexi Boyd, Boyd Office Management


“I just wanted to let you know how valuable the exchange was to me. I got something from every session. Some of my favourites were Layne Beachley, pricing - with the penny dropping for me on value-based vs fixed pricing - and the message, “If you choose not to engage on social media because you’re more of a face to face or other relationship kind of person, that’s ok”. I’m already making more money!”

It was a fabulous few days of connection, collaboration and inspiration, made possible by all who went. And even when the weather didn't cooperate, there was still a 'wow'.
