Maybe you call yourself a consultant, coach, speaker, trainer, advisor, accountant, attorney, or any of the hundreds of titles that experts use. My services are designed to help you.
It doesn’t matter if you’re running your services business from your bedroom, basement, or from a big office in a tall building.
Whatever challenges you face with ever-changing clients and markets, my goal is to help you express unbeatable value to clients, win rewarding work, and still have a life.
For most of my clients, that means working on strategies for business development, marketing, sales, pricing, and services development.
Sometimes, I work with clients as part of a project team or as a workshop leader; other times I work with people on a one-on-one basis.
My goal is to help you answer these questions:
- How can I improve the performance of my advisory business?
- How can I grow my business?
- How can I get my business started?
- How can I improve my own performance or that of my team?
Here’s a summary of the types of things I can do for you.
Fast Track Practice Assessments
Whether you want to land more clients, deliver your services more efficiently, or boost the profitability of your business, it’s often the small changes you make in your business that lead to the biggest benefits.
To help you identify improvement opportunities, I conduct a rapid, independent review of your business and prepare actionable recommendations.
SmartStart for New Business Owners
The conventional wisdom says that anyone can “hang out a shingle” and start an advisory or consulting business. I think that “wisdom” is nonsense.
If you want to build a business that consistently attracts new clients, you’ve got to do more than just get a business license and call yourself an expert.
Smart Start is a one-on-one consultation program for people who are starting or are in the early stages of launching an advisory business. Whether you want to enter the business for the long-term or view consulting as an interim step in your career, SmartStart will help you convert your business concept and skills into an expertise-based business.
The PaceSetter Intensive for Firm Leaders
Firm owners and leaders face continual challenges, especially how to build a profitable business (and keep it that way), help others improve their performance, strengthen existing client relationships, and achieve their own personal and professional goals.
The PaceSetter Intensive is a one-on-one consultation program for owners and leaders of professional services firms who want new thinking about the strategic and tactical issues they face in their day-to-day challenges.
A professional career doesn’t have a neutral gear. To help professionals continue to move forward and build their capabilities, I offer a variety of customized learning events in several formats.
