In no particular order:

Some finance (not accounting) topics that dovetail with some of the questions that appear from time to time that many of us may be rusty on.

Pitch decks (for investors, creditors/banks and sale): tips on content, financials, etc.

Tips on securing Series ("A"," B", etc.) funding

I'd appreciate a webinar or two on information security. Specifically, how smart companies design and implement policies that are both workable and sufficient.

I'd also like to see one or more webinars on the HR side of things... from hiring to benefits to payroll best practices and innovations.

Finally, something on trends in career advancement, such as ways of presenting onself both online and in-person, networking, etc.

To add to my previous suggestions:

Disaster planning (outside of technology)

Continuity of Operations (COOP) planning

Succession planning, in that many of the services we use that are cloud based can and will be locked should the "account holder" leave the employ (either by separation or death). What can we do?

(Financial Controller) |

(Finance Manager) |

Training on obtaining professional case studies/client testimonials. We have been trying to solve this one for a long time but struggle to get clients to sign off on a case study with their name on it. We work on business process improvement and think clients are weary about revealing that their processes were not optimal before we engaged with them. I would appreciate a review of the end-to-end process to ensure that all the steps we are taking are best practice and that we are not wasting effort buildng these case studies but not achieving our end goal.
