The Adviser: The Art of Appreciation

The Adviser is a monthly activity where students take on the role of an accounting adviser. Each month, your students will accept a challenge from a local business that needs accounting help. Through a variety of individual and team exercises, your students will learn and incorporate both technical accounting concepts and soft skills needed to be successful.

This month, your students will learn the importance of building customer loyalty and how to foster it by showing appreciation to clientele. For this assignment, your students will come up with different ways to show thanks based on their customers’ investment in the business and personal interests. Are they ready to get creative to build rapport and sustain their business?

The downloadable activity includes a student worksheet and a teacher answer key.
