Perhaps you think if you do great work and your firm has a fine reputation, clients will just flock in. In today’s world, that’s simply misguided thinking.
Surely there is a reason you’re reading these words now. Perhaps you’re a manager or senior manager at your firm, and you know to make partner you must demonstrate business development skills or create a practice for yourself. Maybe you’re already a partner, and you’re being pressed by management to somehow grow your book in today’s still-tough economy to replace lost work, or you’re facing a downward comp adjustment. Possibly, you lead an office, industry team or have been tapped by your firm to head-up a new initiative, and are striving for ways to stoke top-line revenue. Conceivably, you’re the CEO of a Top 100 Firm, and your shop has been languishing in the bottom quartiles of annual CPA firm growth rankings for years, with your firm becoming less and less relevant.
