This is a senior level breakfast roundtable suitable for those leading key client programmes and who wish to make a genuine change in your own organisation.  

We are all well aware that AI has the potential to improve customer experience, boost operational efficiency, and increase profitability in professional services. But where can we put it to best use in our key client programmes? 

To use AI effectively, it is important to consider how it fits into your overall strategy and business goals and, if we are to place our trust in AI to grow key client relationships, we need to trust AI itself.

We’ve got a lot of topics already planned to talk about but do feel free to send in your topic suggestions, as we’d like to make these as useful and topical for you.

Pop a reminder in your diary to join us every Monday at 12.30 on Teams. We look forward to seeing and hearing from you!

EmpowerHer  A programme for senior women in professional services

EmpowerHer – A programme for senior women in professional services

Fri, 10 Jan 2025

Venue: Central London


A SENIOR LEVEL PROGRAMME

Women are continually underrepresented at partner level in firms of all sizes and research carried out by Client Talk has found that frequently women choose not to progress, often as a result of limiting beliefs and the unconscious impact of gender bias.

This senior level programme has, therefore, been especially designed for female leaders and aspiring leaders including associates and marketing & business development professionals.

The coaching sessions will be led by Claire Rason, a former lawyer and accredited coach and the programme will bring together a cohort of women who want to explore the future of their career in a different way.

It will consist of:

  • 4 face-to-face peer group coaching sessions
  • 1 individual coaching session
  • The opportunity to shape the sessions based on what the cohort is struggling with most
  • A focus on being authentic rather that changing for the system

PSMG is delighted to have been offered FIVE discounted places with a special early bird rate until 30th November 2024

Come and join us and unlock the power within!
