The Rainmakers’ Forum

New Client Development as a Members of the Global Business Council

This is an initiative conceived of, and managed by The Rainmakers’ Forum. It focuses upon two effective ways of generating new clients for you:

  • Arranging for you to appear as an expert in periodic panel presentations to targeted referral sources and client prospects. We plan these quarterly.
  • Arranging for you to meet with prospective clients in group sessions with other Council members to offer initial feedback and advice to them. You will subsequently follow up with the prospects to convert them into clients.

As an added bonus, Council members also have an opportunity to collaborate with each other, sharing resources and cross-referring prospects to each other. Here are the key elements:
