On Monday 10 December we will meet at the Hotel Apollo, 158 Bram Fischer Drive, Randburg to dissect and discuss important marketing lessons for consultants and professional service providers alike. This seminar is about how and why to be a “Rainmaker” and is a must for all consultants and professional service providers and people interested in improving their knowledge of professional consulting marketing strategies.

I know that you are very busy and time is of the essence, but it is also true that successful consultants MAKE time to develop themselves. As the late Stephen Covey wrote: “You must feed the hen that lays the golden eggs”

Consider this:

  • Are you looking for a proven way to build your business, or to increase the size and profitability of your consulting practice?
  • Do you need to know how to create a professional reputation that will give you instant credibility in your business area?
  • Do you want to be known as an expert, and as a thought leader?
  • Would you like to be invited to speak at meetings of your client’s business associations?
  • Do you want to learn how to reinforce relationships with your existing clients?

Do you want to stand out as a leader in the midst of competitive clutter and noise out there?

How will you market your practice during the tough times? The South African economy is predicted to grow only 0.7% this year. How will you stay in business when clients are revaluating their use of outside providers?

What if in just three months, six months, or a year – you could see a marked growth in your consulting business? What if marketing and prospecting could become a fun game rather than a laborious chore you dread?

If your answer is yes, then this workshop is a must attend for you. It will give you tools and tips that can strategically shorten the sales process and increase sales. It will help you to systematically build your own customized marketing plan for your business practice.

Most of us don’t have a system to tilt the scale in our favor. We may see our competition winning in a coveted target market when we know we are the better choice. The difference is often not in skill level or expertise or knowledge, it’s in marketing and communicating. To be recognized as a leader in your field, you’re going to have to be seen in the media, read about by your prospects, and be active on Social Media to be seen and heard by your target market. You’ll need to develop your marketing and promotional skills. Where do you begin?

This workshop is certainly a start and a foundation. At it you will learn ways and tips to enhance your marketing efforts and shorten the success cycle.

Final registrations and payment ends December 4. Click here for more information.

Hope to see you there and share interesting learning experiences.

I am in Durban facilitating two Health & Safety Representative workshops designed to ensure that Representatives can be worthy functioning members of their Health & Safety Committees.

I will facilitate a Health & Safety workshop for OHASA Representatives at CTrack (Digicore) on the 8th October. This workshop equips Health & Safety representatives to be effective and functioning members of their company’s OHASA committee.

I am also an experienced Health & Safety consultant and have facilitated Health & Safety training for more than 18 years on behalf of Scott-Safe, an ISO 14000 OHSA Compliance company as a side interest and passion of mine. 20 years ago I trained with the Mining Engineers that orchestrated the well publicized underground mining accident rescue in Chile.

Couple that with 6 years as a Medical Instructor in the Armed Forces in the early part of my career and the rest of my consulting work the past 18 years – Strategic PR/Crisis/ Reputation Risk and I believe I have a grasp of things from another angle in any crisis.
