Legal Sector Breakfast Briefing - Nottingham

Tom Blandford of Armstrong Watson and Nigel Wilson of Virgin Money are hosting the next of our regular series of Breakfast Briefings for the Legal Services Market in Nottingham via Teams.

Although now using technology, as with our previous events, invites are still being restricted to key decision makers within key regional firms with a select group of regular attendees.  That way we will still attract high quality nationally recognised speakers to present on law firm management issues.

Building New Business

How successful are you and your people at delivering new business?  How many of your clients would - and do - recommend you to others?  And how do you know?   One of the biggest barriers to sales is that very word: sales.  But what if we think about it as influencing, something we all do many times a day?

Jim will share his extensive experience of professional services firms, and what many do well and not so well, and how individual firms can secure significant competitive differentiation in a number of proven but simple ways.   From the Sales Process to building true advocacy, he will provide a snapshot of some ways of overcoming these challenges, and moving towards a team of truly effective influencers.
