Hope alone will not enable accountants to grow their practice. Neither will networking, marketing or social media. Not without a strategy and not if the accountants fail to stand out effectively.
This talk will encourage partners, senior staff and sole practitioners to ensure they are better Remembered, Referred and Recommended.
In this thoroughly researched, popular and magical talk, Mark shares dozens of ideas that will help even the most traditional of accountants to be reMARKable. Mark doesn’t tell anyone what they MUST do as he believes accountants should only do what feels natural and comfortable.
During this talk audiences learn how to get more recommendations and referrals, how to get more value from marketing efforts and easy ways to boost the benefits available from social media and from networking. In do doing Mark debunks much of the hype and the misconceptions that surround these topics.
Mark’s unique experience, credibility and effective communication skills mean that he is better qualified than most to present such a talk. In so doing he helps accountants better understand key aspects of online, written and face to face communication, online and offline profile building and related business development topics.
After a session with Mark your audience will be energised and enthused to act on his advice.
This keynote speech is ideal for accountancy conferences, groups of accountancy firms and single firm annual retreats and away days. Entertaining, educational and enlightening, Mark addresses issues rarely spoken about and yet which are fundamental to securing business, career and practice success.
As Mark explains:
“The key to achieving greater success is to find ways to be more influential and to evidence your credibility. At the same time, crucially, you need to make it easy for people to remember you, refer you and recommend you. This is equally true for your face to face interactions and for those you have online too.”
Whatever the reason for your event, your guests and attendees will thank you for booking Mark to present this entertaining, thought-provoking and stimulating talk.
