Our 2019 reverse, cross-industry mentoring program in WA is about to take flight and we would like you to participate.
There are many benefits to being involved in a mentoring program. Mentors have an opportunity to invest themselves in someone who is keen to learn from a seasoned professional. Mentees are able to share ideas with someone who has walked down the same path. At ICON, we are pleased to share the benefits of mentoring with our members.
Our WA mentoring program is now it its second year. This cost-effective program matches professionals aspiring to leadership with established senior leaders and provides a framework for creating and building mentoring relationships.
"I feel external mentor/mentee relationships are really important. Having previously benefited from being mentored earlier in my career, it is very rewarding to pay it forward in now being a mentor." ICON Mentor WA, 2018

Pricing has a greater impact on profitability than any other lever, yet many firms lack confidence in their pricing strategy. This workshop provides a comprehensive framework for assessing your firm’s approach to pricing. The workshop is illuminated with numerous case studies and encourages participants to identify opportunities to drive revenue and profit growth within their firm.
Never before has the pricing of professional services received so much attention. Most clients have significantly evolved their approach to purchasing professional services and are demanding more from firms – for less. More than ever before, firms are being required to justify their price. Failure to do so results in price erosion or the loss of business.
Professional service firms must develop their pricing competence in order to effectively deal with these increasing client pressures.
