Program Description:

Many legal marketers and law firm professionals are called upon to help younger lawyers learn how to procure new business and teach more senior lawyers how to sharpen their business development skills.  Whether aiming to build an internal business development training program or seeking support from coaching professionals, September’s program will shed light on this often challenging space.
We will hear from two highly credentialed business development strategists and coaching professionals, Chuck Polin and Kimberly Rice, on the basic principles and best practices that they employ to train attorneys in law firm business development. For attorneys with limited time and less inclination, it’s critical to concentrate training on marketing strategies that are actionable and have measurable results.
Hear how Chuck and Kimberly have worked with various law firms to establish appropriate educational priorities, engage attorneys in training sessions, teach practical marketing tools and techniques that lead to results, and ultimately motivate attorneys to market.
And, learn how they’ve each insured their teachings translate into action post-training through coaching and follow-up. 
We hope for a very interactive program, so bring your questions.
