Please join us for a valuable business development course called Biz Dev Essentials. This course is a great way to introduce business development to younger colleagues and refresh the skills of everyone else in your firm. It’s a unique blend of training and technology. It provides unparalleled and on-going support using our proprietary Bizdevcoach app. There is nothing like this in the marketplace.

The course includes:

    • A 30-minute one-on-one, confidential coaching session via telephone

Each lecture is packed with important concepts and practical strategies that can help generate new business. One new matter that comes from an idea learned from this course will more than pay for the entire cost.
