Skills development

for client focussed professionals

Highly-skilled people are essential for the success of every professional services firm. But in today’s market having superior technical skills alone is typically not enough. Professionals are expected to develop and refresh their wider skill set regularly, regardless of their seniority. 

A practical approach to skills development

Our workshops are based on our experience and our research with over 1000 buyers of professional services each year (meaning that we know exactly what delights – and irritates – clients like yours). The content is action-oriented and proven in the real world. Delivery is interactive and content can be tailored to meet specific needs.

The sessions are delivered by senior former professionals and c-suite executives with decades of business experience. They have a deep understanding of the issues professional firms face, because they have faced them themselves. Firms we have worked with have found their knowledge and insights an invaluable element of our workshops.

We have modules specifically designed for fee-earners and business services professionals to match every step of the journey from trainee to leader within a professional services firm. Our curriculum can be tailored to meet specific requirements.
