Our Mission: Helping Consultants to Successfully Develop and Grow Their Businesses and Effectively Serve Their Clients
April 28th Dinner Meeting: How to Have All the Business You Want
As professional advisors and SPC members, we are constantly struggling to balance our time between working with existing clients and prospecting to find new ones. This tension often leads to a ‘feast or famine’ situation, where our time appears fully booked with current clients but then, when these assignments end, we find ourselves with little billable work, searching for new business, and relying on referrals to get busy again.
Successfully managing and growing our business means that we always need to be working to add new clients while we keep our current ones satisfied. This roundtable will show you how to do this effectively, even out the revenue curve and get you on the path to continuous growth.
This roundtable will teach SPC members how to:
- always be prospecting for the right kind of prospects
- network productively
- create strategic partnerships that work for both parties
- ask for referrals and introductions the right way
- get referral prospects to make quicker decisions
The truth is, as professional service providers and entrepreneurs, “we are all in sales” whether we want to admit it or not. In order to grow our practices we need to understand the most effective ways to find and cultivate new business. Get out of your comfort zones and join Ken and Dick as they show us how to do this.

Participant Feedback On Our Meetings:
"I went to my first meeting of the SPC last night, and came away very impressed! Not only did I get great advice on my brand-new consulting business, but the panel presentation was an excellent discussion on the Massachusetts economy past, present and future. The panelists were extremely knowledgeable, informative, and provided useful information to me both as a general citizen and for my budding consultancy. I look forward to participating in such productive events in the future".
