Virtual client happy hours? Rather die

Can you bill those hours?

Please share your T&E description. I need to see how creative it is.

I do. Great client relationships establish better communication and if you ever mess something up they’ll be pretty forgiving if you have the relationship. Definitely worth it

While not the most fun, don't forget who's paying the bills. If you're a Sr. person, it's part of the job. A little extra face time now will go a long ways.

I pre-recorded me drinking, noding and smiling. Just press play and walk away... with drink.

If they’re paying for the drinks!

Uhm no! I don’t wanna see my clients. They can piss off.

My client has a weekly lunch. I always end up on mute because I’m hungry and mouth noises are gross.

I do, I’m really close to my local team and like meeting and having exposure to management across the country

Clients are people too and if you can connect with them on personal level the work part will be much easier. I quite like hh with clients. They get to see I'm a human too and are much easier to work with

Merrill Advisors - I have a client with an account at Merrill and am told that they have a money fund available which insures up to an aggregate of $5,000,000 in FDIC coverage. Is this a CDARs program and they are misinformed or does such a program exist and what is it called? I was told $5mm in coverage with daily liquidity which obviously wouldn’t apply to CDARs. Many thanks!

Question for the group. I am an experienced individual currently searching to get out of private and into public. I am a CFE and Certified Technology Business Management Executive (CTBME) with an MBA and am scheduled to take AUD of CPA on May 13th. Am I barking up the wrong career tree to try to exchange an extensive and diverse career into what appears to be specialization within public? I really enjoy project work as the monthly grind has worn very, very thin. Opinions?

I have minor generalized anxiety. Lately, I’ve had worse anxiety than normal, and as a result, I’m taking my second mental health day in a row. I didn’t tell my firm that it was a mental health day, I just told them I was sick with non-COVID symptoms. None of the partners I work for objected or said anything negative, but I’m now getting worried that they’re somehow going to find out it was just a mental health day instead of physical illness, and that it will somehow bite me in the ass . . .
