November 03, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsNovember 3, 2015 - Donny Shimamoto will be presenting twice at the 2015 AICPA Controllers Conference in Orlando, Florida on November 16, 2015. The first course, Strength Finding/Effective Team Management will teach how to recognize and identify the multidimensional aspects of personalities in the workplace, and how to focus on individual strengths to create powerful teams. It is a course that is crucial for managers looking to overcome team dysfunction and optimize performance in their organization.
Donny's second session is Leveraging Technology in Finance which is designed for non-technical staff. It is a highly interactive workshop format that will facilitate peer learning and exchange.

Led by successful experts in the field, the conference provides best practices from personal experience and is interactive to give attendees solutions that can be applied immediately.

Attendees get to walk away with actionable items to build a strong foundation within their firms."
