Strategic Business Development Training: Creating Your Plan for Targeted Growth
Includes a Live Event on 05/26/2021 at 2:00 PM (EDT)
Business development is a term used interchangeably for marketing, sales, networking, and socializing in general. That’s not what it really is when it comes to growing your firm’s business. During this webinar, our presenter will show us how to create and lead real strategic business development efforts and get real results. This training will teach you how to pursue more strategic opportunities that develop deep client relationships with the ones you actually want to do business with, enhance your career, and end in signed contracts with profitable long-term clients.
This isn’t a general “attend a networking event and send a thank-you email” kind of session. It’s a how-to guide for developing a strategic plan—starting with firmly identifying your core competence in alignment with your company’s vision, mission and strategy to setting aligned marketing goals, defining target markets and clients, and using that research to increase client hit rates. Our presenter will also share real-life examples in today’s markets to help guide you as you navigate changing environments and what to expect as a result.
During this webinar, participants will:
- Discover how to create and lead real strategic business development efforts
- Learn how to pursue more strategic opportunities that develop deep client relationships with the clients you actually want to do business with
