Vertical Acceleration Program
A Growth Program for the Financial Services Organisations
Are you struggling with low organic growth?
Are you frustrated with the productivity of your producers?
Are you ready to discover how to improve your business results?
If you’re like most of my clients, you already have a strong track record of successbut, for whatever reason, you currently find yourself feeling stuck, and facing significant growth challenges that you don’t quite know how to overcome.
Some issues that I see over and over again with financial service firms:
- Producers who are spending too much time servicing existing clients instead of filling their sales pipeline and aggressively pursuing new business.
- The insufficient system in place for following up with part-time clients who only have a small amount of business with you to discuss additional products and services and turn them into 100% full-time clients.
- An over-reliance ad-hoc marketing approaches to generate leads and hoping for the best. Instead of facilitating leads and referrals from existing clients and centers of Influencers.
Whatever your specific circumstances, you feel a sense of urgency about changing things. You know that if you continue as is, you’ll probably continue to achieve similar results. You’re invested in making a difference, and you’re not willing to coast.
What’s possible for you?
