Peter Margaritis, CSP, c.p.a. C-Suite Network Advisor Since March 2021
Founder and CEO
My name is Peter Margaritis, CSP, CPA, aka “The Accidental Accountant and I am a professional speaker, educator, improv virtuoso, podcaster, author, and licensed non-practicing CPA. I work with business leaders in two ways – one, developing leadership skills through the power of improv; and two, developing financial literacy through the strengthening of business, accounting, and financial acumen.
I know these two things sound diametrically opposed… but when brought together in harmony with a shared outcome of developing successful leaders and businesses – the lights come on. So, I guess you could say, in a nutshell – I switch on light bulbs.

"Peter presented Financial Storytelling: The Key in Growing Your Organization to the Next Level at our Tri-State Accountants meeting. As a group, we struggle with how to present financial information to a board and membership that by and large does not have a financial background. We all related to the many trials and tribulations he so eloquently spoke of. I most appreciated “there’s a story in the numbers…figure it out and tell the story” part of the training. I put that tip in place at my monthly board meeting just 17 days after his presentation and the board was much more engaged than before. Both my board and I are very thankful I was able to hear Peter speak."
"Peter was brilliant and engaging with his “Taking the Numb Out of Numbers” presentation at the University of Nebraska at Omaha School of Accounting Speakers Series! Professional and student attendees appreciated Peter’s interactive style and practical speaking tips. One student commented that Peter’s guidance is “very relevant and great advice for those entering the workforce.” Peter’s storytelling made the time go by quickly and made his points easy to remember. Thanks, Peter!"

"I know that you know that Peter is a fantastic presenter, but yesterday’s session was over the top. Our staff was engaged and thoroughly enjoyed his presentation, not to mention his sense of humor. It was a very interactive, fun, yet informative day. At our happy hour post-event, they were all just buzzing about it and still are today. Now the job is in our hands to keep the momentum going, but you know we are good at that and are already making plans to do some follow-up."
