In our ever-changing industry, more and more technical professionals are being asked to do more to not only grow existing accounts but to attract new clients for their firms.  This new paradigm has created additional ways in which management can track and predict the future health of their firms.

Just say no to “cold calling”. This interactive program will provide the insight, skills and practices that technical professionals can employ daily to grow existing accounts, attract new clients, and provide the predictive information that management requires.

Join us for hints to:

  • Develop your firm’s unique value proposition
  • Define prospects and capture leads
  • Network with ease and effectiveness
  • Warm up a cold call
  • Employ open and closed end questing to gain information on projects and client drivers
  • Track and evaluate information necessary to plan and evaluate business growth, such as revenue, pipeline development and a sales funnel.


There will be at least two interactive exercises:

  1. UVP Development
  2. Six Degrees of Separation (networking)
  3. A mock client meeting – time permitting.
