TOPIC: "Attracting and Enrolling High-Value Clients and Staff"

Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists provide an important service to growing businesses and are active in the development of a world that works better. The Professions are highly technical practices requiring specialized education, appropriate accreditation and the experience that comes from working directly on important projects for important clients.

Few professionals enjoy the process of selling, cold calling, networking and other sales and marketing activities that result in getting the best and most interesting projects; many firms are struggling to compete to get the best, most creative and reliable staff to work for them. This workshop is an introduction to the sales and marketing work that results in attracting and enrolling the best clients and staff. The seminar will focus on helping each participant identify the key factors that make up a good engineering brand.

Strong brands attract the best clients and staff, therefore, the key to building a strong brand is a clear and passionate call to action with language that expresses the true value of the firm in language free from jargon and other confusions. Each participant will leave with a more effective way to introduce themselves to prospective clients and employees.

Pre-Registration and advance payments are required. Seating is limited and registrations will be dealt with on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please call the Calgary APEGGA office at 262-7714 to register before Friday, October 17, 2002. The Calgary Branch now accepts Visa, MasterCard, or American Express. Please note: A light snack will be provided.
