Let’s get personal – client engagement in a Covid world

24 Nov 2020 10:00 - 11:00

WEBINAR Host: Simmons & Simmons

LAST CHANCE TO BOOK!

What’s on your background? Bookshelf? Pictures of pets/kids? Some funky artwork? Who would have thought in March 2020 that we would now regularly let our clients into our homes through online platforms. 

Counter intuitively, the fact that face to face contact is now the exception rather than the rule in a business environment has made our relationships with clients more intimate.

  • How can we use this changing dynamic to our advantage in building deeper and more trusting relationships with our clients?
  • Does the same ring true for establishing new client relationships? 

Join an interactive discussion with Lee Curtis, Head of Sales at Simmons & Simmons together with his colleague Lauren Bridgen, Global Financial Institutions Sector Lead, on the changing nature of client relationships in a digital environment.

In the prior two sessions we focused on how to generate the insights that firms need to succeed and how to align your CRM with your existing processes.

In this final session, the focus will be on helping delegates to understand the human component of your firm. Michael Warren VP, CRM Practice, Wilson Allen and Nicholas Barrows Director of Marketing, Trowers & Hamlins LLP will also discuss how to harness the knowledge and connections that your individuals have and will share how to institutionalise those connections to support the firm’s marketing and business development goals.

Innovation in a risk averse environment

Innovation in a risk averse environment

28 Jan 2021 12:00 - 13:00

WEBINAR Host: Simmons & Simmons

Lawyers, accountants and actuaries are all trained from an early age to be risk averse. The most innovative firms in the world have a culture where failing fast is a regular part of business and a move into new and unchartered (risky) territory can be seen as a competitive advantage. 

This juxtaposition presents challenges in establishing an innovation mindset within a law firm. What are the incentives for thinking about things differently? How do you encourage trial and error when every six minutes needs to be accounted for? What approaches can be adopted to challenge the accepted way of doing things? 

Join Lee Curtis , Head of Sales, and Sam Stamp , Head of New Business at Simmons & Simmons , who will share their thoughts on these challenges and the approaches they are taking to foster an innovation mindset within Simmons.

Virtual Host: TBC

The world of business is shifting as never before. 
But so too is the way in which we choose to work. 

Our sector continues to experience unprecedented speeds of change with mounting pressure from all directions - clients and partners, new technologies, and disruptors offering new business models that break from our traditional ways of working. 

At the heart of this is the new generation of professionals, within your own firm and those of your clients, who will be the most demanding yet, with the expectation of diversity on many fronts: people, career development, workplace, technology and well-being.

The future of professional services is undergoing a seismic change and the role of firm culture will be more significant than ever. 

How can we, in marketing and business development, be instrumental in driving the direction of cultural change so often needed within our firms, and develop the skills required. We must now position ourselves to be at the forefront and integral to the fast paced changes affecting our sector.

Join us for insights, opinions, comments and thought-provoking debate from some of the most informed and inspired voices in professional services.

Salespeople In a law firm Whatever next

Salespeople? In a law firm? Whatever next!

30 Mar 2021 12:00 - 13:00

WEBINAR Host: Simmons & Simmons

The word sales evokes a range of emotions. Within the legal industry it is often considered an activity undertaken by other industries and something that is beneath the esteemed legal profession. As a result the sales mentality, tools and infrastructure in place across the legal industry is woefully inadequate.

With the entry of new players into the legal market and the proliferation of more commoditised legal services it is clear that this situation has to change. 

Join Lee Curtis , Head of Sales at Simmons & Simmons, for a discussion on his new role in establishing a sales culture and the opportunities and challenges this brings.
