Check out these articles and tips from BDA instructor Art Kuesel.  

"Art and the BD Academy is exactly what I needed to get started in my business development role at our firm. The information is relevant, timely, and necessary for any up-and-coming CPA looking to grow. The class addresses an issue that the profession is late to pick up on, that being – how do accountants become and remain successful relationship providers in today’s business landscape."
