The science of selling your services: new research shows how you can attract clients, and make them loyal to your partners and the firm.

Clients are getting choosier, and very much more price conscious. There are far more professional service firms chasing less and less money. This makes your job tough and often frustrating. Partners are demanding more of you, yet are often not really listening to what you say.

Recent discoveries in a number of fields can give those in the business of selling services a distinct edge over the competition. In this lively, entertaining and interactive talk Dr Bob Murray, a noted scientist (behavioral neurogeneticist), psychologist, and consultant working with the likes of PwC, KPMG, Deloitte and many of the world's largest law firms will give you some immediately actionable tips which will make your job much more rewarding and successful. Both in dealing with partners and clients.

In this talk you will learn:

  • Powerful persuasion tools you can use to get your ideas across— and they're not what you think
  • What really makes clients choose one firm over another
  • What science says about the art of the pitch—and how to use this information
  • How to get clients committed to the relationship with you, your partner and the firm
  • How to use the human dopamine reward system to your advantage

There will be opportunities to practice these new tips and plenty of time for questions.

Spaces are limited and will be on a first-come-first served basis.
