Networking Skills for Accountants

From new trainee to senior accountant, I will show you how to become more successful, build your self-confidence, gain more clients, and increase profits with my CPD accredited networking skills workshops.

Because I had over 35 years experience as a practicing Chartered Accountant I bring you an insight into the fundamentals of networking from an accountant’s perspective. I believe I understand your goals and aspirations and in today’s competitive world you know that there is more to accountancy than just crunching numbers.

I help you become more proactive and embrace business development as an integral part of your daily work life.

As a result of the training, you will:

  • Be willing to accept more business invitations
  • Meet more people and therefore build more relationships
  • Understand the best questions to ask
  • Know how to move the relationship to the next stage
  • Create more meetings with prospects

More Information

Who should attend?

Trainees

They spend lots of time with clients so probably network more often than most. Reinforcing relationships is a key part of networking.

The qualified and more experienced accountant

It should be part of their role to attend events and if they want to start to build their own following then effective networking must be part of their daily work life.

The partner or director

You have reached ‘the top’ but are you getting the most from attending events? Do you spot opportunities and maybe don’t follow up? If so click here to see the Master Class I run for the more experienced networker.

The non-practising accountant

You may not be expected to network to help bring in new business but to be able to network efficiently internally and build relationships with outside stakeholders will ensure your career goes in the direction you want.

Alternative ways of learning networking skills

Not only do I run in-house workshops, but I also hold public courses as alternative ways of learning.

You can try before you buy

If you're considering inviting me in to run an in house workshop then please get in touch. It may be you would like one of your colleagues to join me at a public seminar in the first instance to check that what I do will be of benefit to your business.
