The benefits of having a client development strategy

Research carried out by Frederick Reichheld of Bain and Co (the inventor of the net promoter score) showed that increasing your client retention rate by as little as 5 percent can increase profits by between 25 to 95 percent. Couple that with the fact it’s five to twenty five times cheaper to grow existing clients rather than get new clients and you have a very compelling case to have a strategy in place to develop an agency’s existing client base. In this webinar Jenny Plant (Owner, Account Management Skills) talks about how agency account managers can add value to their client’s business, revenue to the bottom line of their agency and increase their career prospects by understanding how to create a client development strategy for account growth. And we answer questions from the audience.

Life as a MedComms Freelancer

In this webinar we’re joined by some experienced MedComms freelancers who answer questions about their working life. Have you thought about freelancing? Does the freedom sound attractive? No commute. Sitting in your pyjamas with the cat/dog beside you, while you charge lots by the hour? None of those interminable company meetings. What’s not to like? Or is it lonely and isolating? Do you spend more time chasing payments than doing the work? What happens when the computer crashes and there’s no IT colleague to help? Or you fall ill? Emma Georgiou, Jane Mason and Sarah Smith share their experiences. And we answer questions from the audience.
