Are You Happy With Your Firm’s Strategic Planning?

  • Do you have a razor sharp focus on the next three years?

  • Clearly identified growth targets for fee income?

  • New revenue channels identified?

  • An active programme of client acquisition in place?

  • Methods to build-in client added value to help retain what you have?

  • Succession and growth planning to help develop, motivate and importantly keep your talent?

  • Client care processes that ensure time is not wasted

  • Are the senior management team, partners, functional heads, fee earners and support staff all collectively behind the strategy and working toward common goals?

“OK” you may be thinking, we do need to rethink our plans, the World’s changed over the last 18 months and the strategy is something that’s playing on my mind. I guess we could do with a fresh perspective. 

BUT, typically these engagements with external “experts” can prove frustrating, offer a way to see where you should be but don’t help you deliver. As the Managing Partner you and your senior team are headlong into the “day to day” operational priorities and there’s little time to spend on the “strategic stuff!” Having a nice report with recommendations won’t get your objectives over the line.

Would it help to have:

  1. A methodology that would help you plan out a simple, visual and coherent three year plan with defined goals.
  2. A tried and trusted process that takes those overall goals and offers a flexible but structured approach to engaging and motivating your teams to make their contribution toward the overall targets.
  3. An initial, no obligation, one to one consultation to talk through the current situation, challenges and overview of the business position to assess the options.
  4. A fresh perspective from someone who’s been in the trenches, running a multi million turnover business for over a decade including the 2008 recession, Brexit and digital revolution.

We’re launching our new management programme insight 2 impact – combining trusted approaches to business planning and implementation methods taking you from top level strategy all the way through to quarterly plans and monthly tactical actions.

With many years senior management experience including that of a CEO, successfully navigating the 2008 global recession, impact of Brexit and many other challenging situations, David Laud is well placed to support business owners with planning and support at this time.

David is a talented and progressive CEO with particular strengths in marketing and business development. He is an effective operator in one of the most challenging sectors: professional services.  Alan Holmes – Non Executive Director Innovate North East

I have worked with David for several years now with him providing services to Morton Fraser. I very much value David’s expertise and have found him to be extremely knowledgeable and innovative in his field. I look forward to continuing to work with David in the future and am very happy to recommend his services to others.  Innes Clark – Partner, Morton Fraser LLP – Edinburgh

“David has been an excellent CEO/COO for the practice. Strong on marketing and business development. Progressive with IT. Good with the finances and regulatory bodies. He manages people positively but will take tough decisions when required.”  Robert Gibson – Senior Partner Samuel Phillips – Newcastle

I have worked with David for a number of years and have found his insight and support invaluable. He offers a fresh perspective on the sectors that he works in and is full of ideas, which he is always happy to share. He is a good guy and steers well clear of the one size fits all approach.  Sean McDonough Partner Mogers Drewett LLP – Bath

I have worked with David’s business for several years and his knowledge and approach to social media and marketing generally is fantastic. He is always willing to go the extra mile in terms of customer service and unlike some marketing businesses, genuinely informative through his social media activity, rather than overtly self-promoting. I would not hesitate to recommend him! Nigel Harrison Head of Employment Law – Hatchers LLP – Shrewsbury

I have worked with David for a number of years and I find him to be a real inspiration. He provides a very high level of service and is always willing to share his ideas and guide me in the right direction. I’m extremely grateful for his help and support.  Kathryn Hirst Partner Hansells Solicitors – Norwich
