Michael is one of    AMERICA’S   TOP   EXECUTIVE   COACHES.


He is a former lawyer ( Davis Polk & Wardwell in New York ).  Michael holds degrees from  HARVARD & STANFORD.




The BARRISTERS’ Masterclass will be:


                          “Assessing Your Business Development Competencies . . . and Then Moving Forward”.


This Masterclass is exclusively for Barristers.  Places limited ( 10 – 12 places ).




“Assessing Your Business Development Competencies . . . and Then Moving Forward”


“Lawyers know that skills in business development are required for success.  But many have a rather hazy idea of what competencies are actually required to do business development effectively.  Further, they tend hold onto a caricature of business development and networking as being limited to as glad-handing, salesy, inauthentic cocktail chatter . . . which preconception they then use as justification for doing nothing.  In this session, we’ll set forth what is really required for business development and relationship development and see where you can start making improvements.”

Date:  Tuesday, 29 October

Time:  5.30 p.m. to 7.30 p.m.
