5 Ways Business Owners Can Succeed In Winning New Clients

Thursday 4th July 2019 • 8:30am – 10:30am

Research has shown that it is much cheaper to retain existing clients than gain new ones. Some business owners are expanding by gaining new clients while others are not growing at all, or worse, losing clients.

Word of mouth and selling more services to your existing customers may be effective but can be slow and limit your growth potential.

It is left to you to determine the kind of business owner you want to be, but since you are reading this our guess is that you want to win new clients.

Join us at this highly interactive breakfast event where our host Gilly Thompson will teach you her 5 ways of winning new clients, sending you on your way to achieving new client success and growing your business.

In celebration of Independence Day, an american breakfast will be provided by The Colony HQ.
