Xero Drop In is our new one-to-one Xero training service.  Xero is very popular for maintaining business accounts but how well is it working for you?

Our recent seminar, New Year, New Business - A Guide for Startups, was very successful despite the unplanned power cut across our area that morning!  The presentation without electricity became a very relaxed informal discussion around the table.  Candles would have been good but the emergency light and a small window gave everyone just about enough light to make notes!  …
