Does your firm have too many clients that you are sending them to your competition? No? If this is not the case, then training your employees (not just the marketing, business development, and sales staff) how they can contribute to the company’s business development efforts could reap massive rewards. The quickest way for a professional to make an impact in their firm and advance their position and career is to make an impact on the bottom line.


Don't forget your business cards! Coach Conner is offering 2 free (individual) coaching sessions. We will have a drawing at the conclusion of the event from the business cards collected.

  • In this half-day workshop we will discuss how business development is a process and what the steps in that process are, and how individuals (in any position) can help their firms locate, pursue, and close more deals.
  • In this engaging and interactive session there will be individual and group exercises that will give attendees a chance to learn what not only works for them, but also what tactics and techniques might work for their team members back at the office.
  • Attendees will be armed with new ideas and best practices to take back to their firms and help the do’ers take a step or two in the direction of sellers!
  • This program is perfect for marketing, business development, technical staff and administrative support team members.
