Learn how to create a prospecting system to engage your potential clients.
Professional Services businesses thrive on the strength of referrals and word-of-mouth. However, as markets mature and become more competitive, passive approaches to business development are no longer enough to rely on. Data-Driven Prospecting for Professional Services will teach your team the tools and techniques they need to proactively find and engage their ideal client prospects in a targeted, process-driven and scalable manner.
This program is tailored specifically to the Professional Services industry - law firms, consulting firms, financial services firms - and is designed for anyone who is responsible for business development, whether to find new clients or to generate more business from existing clients.
