Do firms fundamentally misunderstand what profitability is and how to measure and use it?
What’s the best way to use the breadth and flow of data across your organisation to improve performance?
How can firms use technology and data to price more accurately and can pricing specialists accelerate this change?
Has anything really changed in pitching? We’ll examine how to differentiate by leveraging the benefits of data, diverse teams and collaboration.
How can you make the most out of project management and process improvement when delivering client and firm-wide internal work?
Client expectations have changed, but do firms really understand this and are they making the most out of this opportunity to build a stronger relationship?
