All you need to know about Client listening

All you need to know about Client listening

Webinar Host: Meridian West

LAST CHANCE TO BOOK!

PSMG would like to invite you to join us on Tuesday 18th January 2022 when Ben Kent, Silvia Grigoroiu and Jonathan Litterick of Meridian West present “All you need to know about Client listening''.

Most professional firms are reasonably good at gathering feedback data on their clients. Those who discover and respond to client needs quickly have a competitive advantage, but client listening programmes can fail to communicate and improve the frustrations and experiences of clients.

Meridian West is presenting best practice in using technology to capture and analyse data, to deliver feedback intelligence, and deliver a best-in-class client experience.

In this interactive session we will provide a practical guide to developing a client listening programme, including:

Virtual Seminar

Due to ongoing government guidelines this seminar will transfer to online - please note the revised timings

Relationships are the lifeblood of professional services firms and getting feedback from clients should be central to all marketing efforts. Most firms do have either a formal client feedback programme or are in the habit of gathering ad hoc data at critical points in their journey.

Getting feedback from clients has risen in importance with Covid. The situation for clients is constantly changing and what they need from their advisors is in constant flux. It has never been as important to make sense of this qualitative data fast. However, this has been something that firms have in the past struggled with, and as programmes grow it becomes increasingly difficult to read across data sets.

Masterclass: Supercharge your Client Listening

Wed, 23 Mar 2022 08:30 - 12:00

Venue: TBC: If you are interested in hosting face to face then please contact us

All our face to face events offer live streaming so you can still join us from afar

The majority of professional services firms have client feedback programmes in place. Some have developed these programmes to strengthen their key client relationships, others use them to shape strategy. 

Regardless of the objective, at the heart of each programme are conversations with clients. However, how often do we stop to think about the foundations of our client listening programmes? 

During this 1/2 day Masterclass former lawyer, business development professional, and accredited coach, Claire Rason will focus on the art of gathering feedback  and will provide   tools and techniques to enhance your client listening programmes.

This masterclass is aimed at any professional who is involved in conducting client interviews.

 

 

The PSMG Full Day London Summit - "The Environmental, Social and Governance Movement”

Wed, 27 Apr 2022 08:00 - 17:30

Venue: One America Square Conference Centre, 17, One Crosswall, America Square, London EC3N 2LB. Note: Live streaming is available for virtual delegates

The Environmental, Social and Governance Movement

An Opportunity AND an obligation

What does it mean for professional services providers?

“Corporate social responsibility is a hard-edged business decision. Not because it is a nice thing to do or because people are forcing us to do it… because it is good for our business”

Niall Fitzgerald, former CEO, Unilever

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues should be top concerns of all corporate management and boards.

There was a time when a public stance on ESG issues was a public relations tactic. However, in today's rapidly changing business climate, attention to ESG issues is becoming critical to long-term competitive success.

In this new environment all company performance is being assessed through an ESG lens and professional services firms are not immune to this.

Evidence shows that properly integrated ESG policies widen a firm’s competitive reach compared to other industry players. Those who take steps to improve labour conditions, enhance the diversity of their teams, invest in their communities, and adopt sustainable environmental practices and policies will strengthen their brand and their client offering.

People are interested in the “citizenship” of a brand, and whether it is doing the right things societally, economically and environmentally.

Organisations that recognize the importance of adapting to changing socio-economic and environmental conditions are better able to identify strategic opportunities and meet competitive challenges.

We must, therefore, reconnect company success with societal progress. Shared value is not social responsibility or even sustainability. It is a new way to achieve economic success. It is not on the outer edge of what we do but rather at the centre.

Those who are truly committed to executing ESG policies, practices and programmes ensure ESG is a senior management priority of the CEO and general counsel, and increasingly tie compensation to ESG metrics.

They voluntarily report ESG goals, and progress towards meeting them, to all stakeholders via the annual CEO letter, annual reports, internal corporate communications, and/or annual sustainability reports.

Increasingly they are demanding their suppliers and vendors – including their professional advisors, act in the same way.

It is no longer enough to talk the talk.

We in Business Development and Marketing must be integral to the fast-paced changes affecting our sector and our client industries.
