BDWise: Our “Hybrid” Biz Dev Training Program
If you would like a free sample module to use with your attorneys…
The program is delivered over ten months. This allows for optimal learning, repetition and practice.
Live Webinars and Online Lessons
There are ten lessons. Included with each lesson is a live 60-minute webinar delivered by a trainer. Each one is recorded for those who may miss a live class.
Lessons contain instructional guides and worksheets to complete. Most lessons have some pre-work, so your attorneys come to the webinar prepared, and almost all lessons have some post-work.
Lessons Available 24/7
All course material is accessible from our proprietary Learning Management System (LMS). Your firm will have its own private course which contains all the recorded webinars, study guides and worksheets. Each user receives a unique login and password.
Progress & Results Are Tracked Online
Webinar attendance is tracked, as is the completion of each deliverable. Each attorney is given his or her own online worksheet to track their plans, results, best prospects and metrics. You have access to each of these as well.
Peer Group Support
We provide tools and resources for your attorneys to form into 3-person accountability groups. These groups meet between classes, create camaraderie and provide practical support to the participants. Your attorneys will retain more of the information this way and develop stronger biz dev skills.
Opportunity for Marketers to Coach Attorneys
For those marketers that want to do more coaching of their attorneys, we have designed a structured approach to help you learn these valuable skills and work with the participants between lessons.
