 C.A.R.E The Secret to Long-Term Client Relationships

Manola RobisonAll consultants need clients. We may think that we sign agreements with companies, yet the company does not make the buying decision a person does. The experience and value that those buyers perceive and receive from us is vital to our establishing long-term relationships with them. What’s the big deal about long-term relationships? First, they give us the opportunity to offer new services to the client - or to expand our services to new business units of the client organization - because we are established as trusted advisors. Second, given the increasing mobility of executives, established relationships open doors for us in new organizations, without additional marketing costs. In an interactive session, Manola Robison, CMC will share with us a good long-term client relationship strategy: C.A.R.E.


What you’ll learn:

  • The valued "wants” of long-term relationship clients - what we can provide so that they want to have us around.
  • The ups and the downs of long-term client relationships - yes, all is not rosy.
  • The obstacles for sustaining long-term clients - awareness wins half of the battle.
  • Moving from one-time experts to long-term advisors with C.A.R.E. - the attributes that enable us to maintain a positive long-term relationship with clients.
  • The 9 consulting landmines to avoid in long-term client relationships or, how to soar with long-term clients in spite of ourselves.
