What would you like to learn about client development? When I was a young lawyer I I wanted to learn:

  1. How to put together a business plan with goals so I could use my time wisely
  2. How to build my visibility, credibility and profile so I could become more valuable to clients
  3. How to build client and referral relationships so I could build trust and rapport with clients
Unfortunately for me there were no programs available to learn about client development. I learned from the seat of my pants.
A year ago, the Texas State Bar advised us that our three hour program: “Securing, Retaining and Expanding Relationships with Your Clients” had been accredited to receive 3.00 hours participatory CLE credit and 0.50 hours Ethics credit. I will be doing the program at my office this Wednesday, September 22 from 9-12.  If you are a Dallas Fort Worth area lawyer and want to participate contact Joyce jflo@cordellparvin.com to get more details and sign up.  We are limiting participation to the first 30 who sign up.
If you practice in another Texas city and want me to bring the program to your location, see if you can put together a group who would also value the program and contact Joyce.
I would enjoy doing this program in other states. I know that states like Virginia and Pennsylvania would never give CLE credit for this kind of program and your state may not as well. But, the value of the program is far more than CLE credit. It is focused on ideas I have used and other successful lawyers have used to build our practices. If you would be interested in me bringing the program to your city and can put together a group who would also value the program and contact Joyce and I will do my best to bring the program to your city.
As many of you know, lately I have been doing podcast interviews of lawyers I have coached and firm leaders of firms for whom I have coached. If you want to get a sense of what you might learn and how you might implement what you learn, click HERE to listen or to download the podcasts from iTunes.
