In my April webinar for FINSIA on ‘Network-building plans for finance professionals in the new normal’, I outlined the key problems I see professional advisors stumble on when it comes to their business and relationship development. Here’s the number 1 thing (and how to overcome it).
As 2021 ended and 2022 began, I noticed an increase in enquiries across Australia on how to brand your business to appeal to top employees, and how to be visible to them in a highly competitive landscape.
If you are thinking of up-levelling your personal brand this year, here’s a checklist of key elements to consider for your plan. While this list is created with business leaders in mind, or those responsible for business development and sales, much of this checklist is easily applicable to those forging their professional career.
A common concern when taking on professional development programs within an organisation is how much impact it will really make: therefore the ROI on time and money. This is what you should be looking for.
Sometimes you know you will be making a change in your career, and the plan is to launch the ‘new you’… but there may be some wait time before you can make your announcements. So what can you do behind-the-scenes to get your brand ready while you wait?
In last week’s virtual roundtable for law leaders, my co-host Ben Deverson and I led a discussion on law firm business development strategy for 2021. Ben and I described what we are seeing with our law clients and offered strategies to focus on to see out the year and be ready for the challenges of the next.
At the moment, the biggest question on my mind is: How can businesses continue to stay VISIBLE and RELEVANT during challenging, fast-shifting times? How can we best serve others in ways that feel authentic and easy for all parties… to help us all create thriving business?
