Monday 11th September - How to Multiply Enduring Leads via Alliances
When done properly new prospect introductions from Alliances are more effective than personal referrals. However, they are often done badly.

This session will discuss and share the frameworks to explore, establish and manage productive alliance relationships. Don’t attend expecting an ‘silver bullet’ – alliances can be powerful but making these processes your own takes time, commitment and a plan – this session will provide the confidence to take your alliance plan to the next stage.

Monday 21st August - How to Multiply Productivity with 1st/2nd Chairs
For many advisory firms, the path to productivity growth is right under their noses – their support team. There is a fundamental shift occurring away from the traditional allocation of financial advice team responsibilities. Driven by an increasing price and flexibility of advisory teams increases, the expanding array of back-office services and a realisation that the majority of comprehensive client support issues require less technical dependency, the rise of 1st/2nd Chairs becomes a vital practice to reduce dependency and increase client retention, team productivity, and capacity to service. This session will outline the successful approach to adopt 1st/2nd Chair practice for all key meetings with comprehensive advice clients.

Monday 7th August - Managing Re-engagement Discounting
This session discusses the problem of fee discounting for existing clients which causes a significant leakage of advisory team productivity. As advisory team skills, experience, reputations, fixed costs, and demand grow, ongoing fees for existing clients tend to stagnate. This causes significant relativity risk (i.e. loyal clients on lesser fees receiving similar service levels to new clients on similar services) and dependency risks (i.e. loyal clients expecting ongoing relationships with specific advisers). As the capacity of advisory team members is stretched how are advisory teams successfully pricing and controlling their ongoing pricing, productivity, and profitability?

Monday 17th July - Empathy skills for Discovery Meetings
Some Discovery Meetings skills require special empathy skills. These are the Discovery meetings when clients or prospects share strong feelings or are confronted by significant emotional circumstances. This session explores advanced empathy skills of being present, listening, and probing to ensure advisory teams develop and share an understanding of their client’s and prospects’ circumstances. Without empathy from an advisory team when client feelings are strong, identification of client value and best next steps are less effective.
