We've all been there - it's after lunch, you're trying to fill out workpapers or analyzing the audit evidence, and you hit a mental wall. It's 2PM and you absolutely have no energy to do progress.
 
Studies show that taking breaks increases your productivity at work. It is a way for all of us to de-stress a little - otherwise, we are too worked up for the rest of the day. As the pressure of busy season is increasing, we want to provide you with the opportunity to step away.
 
I am so excited to introduce our new series of events called - quite simply - Coffee Breaks. They are small-group meetups (think: 5 to 7 people at most!) to be held at various coffee shops, to step away from your daily grind. An experienced pro will be present to chat and listen in on what everyone is going through, and offer their advice. The session will run between 30 minutes to an hour - enough time for you to re-charge and get right back to work.
 
We are offering two in the month of November - a midtown and a downtown Coffee Break Session. We are selecting coffee shops all around Manhattan, in the hopes that your office is within walking distance. See images below for further information. Space is free but extremely limited (we wanted to keep them small, after all!). Coffee and small snacks will be provided.
