Webinar | How A/E/C Winners Embrace Business Development
December 10, 2019
2:00pm – 3:30pm
Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to get settled before the webinar begins at 2pm.
Gather with local Philadelphia AEC colleagues and tune into this month’s in-person webinar hosted by SMPS HQ.
“Everyone’s a marketer,” or so the adage goes. But is that really true in your firm—or even the most important aspect? In reality, focusing on marketing and business development together are what makes a firm successful.
You might be wondering: Why should we add business development to our culture when it’s not part of everyone’s job description? Because every employee needs to think about building business, no matter their role in the firm. And to think about building business, every employee must:
- Understand what makes your firm unique
- Espouse the brand and articulate the value proposition
- Know how to recognize a lead when they see it
- Understand their role in the business development (BD) process
A/E/C winners of tomorrow will truly embrace a firmwide business development culture to empower all employees to contribute to their firm’s BD success!
Our December webinar will serve as a call to action to build and maintain a BD culture at your firm that leads to sharing ideas, best practices, and resources for driving BD. You’ll learn how to grow your organization and become more valuable to your existing clients. A BD audit and gap analysis will also be shared as well as tips on matching every member of your team with their BD skillset.
**This webinar will be streamed in McCormick Taylor’s office. Registrants must be in-person to participate.**
