Course Description

Business development and firm growth are some of the hottest topics in the industry currently. 

How do we promote growth? 

How do we obtain more clients while retaining current clients? 

How do we gain more market share? 

These are important topics for firm leaders to understand to maintain a healthy firm and unlock opportunities in a market that has traditionally been based on a price-driven commodity. 

Business development refers to the processes, strategies, and tasks intended to increase and expand opportunities within and between different companies. This could mean business expansion, increasing revenue, making strategic business decisions, or improving profitability through strategic partnerships.

More generally, business development is the creation of long-term value for a business from partnerships, clients, and markets. The term can apply to any activity, no matter the size of the business, whether it is a for-profit or non-profit, which is aimed at ‘developing’ the company in any manner. 

Business development can sometimes seem like an overwhelming task for those firm leaders who have historically been focusing on industry knowledge and service. 

This CPE webinar offers insight and a framework for simplified business growth developed specifically for accountants based on 15+ years of industry experience in both Accounting and Sales.
