Summary

Discuss your challenges with local law firms and independent estate agents

Having listened to our customers, we know that business generation is one of the main aims of leading law firms. We know that estate agents are always keen to ensure that their customers secure the services of trusted local law firms and so the answer should lie in local networking and effective partnerships.

The reality is rarely so simple as there are a number of factors that can influence the customer in their choice of conveyancer and so a warm recommendation may not always be enough. Price is often seen as the main reason for winning or losing business, but results from recent surveys show us that this is not a customer’s primary concern.

If you are interested in maximising profits from leads and potential leads, interaction with current and future customers will be always be your priority. These workshops will look at every aspect of the process from the initial recommendation to winning the customer’s instructions.

Estate agents want to be confident that their recommended conveyancers are instructed whenever to possible so that customers receive the best possible experience and sales exchange with minimum difficulty.

With this is mind, we are inviting both leading local law firms and independent estate agents to take part in these free-to-attend, interactive workshops, where both sides of the industry can discuss their respective challenges and agree best practice as far as the client is concerned.

Facilitated by tmgroup, our team will share ideas on how to make the most of market intelligence, results from consumer research and simple ways you may be able to increase business.

The main focus of these sessions will centre on interactive roundtable discussions, where we expect to hear a diverse range of opinions and ultimately gain an understanding of best practice in such a vital area of business development.

The full Agenda for each of these events will feature:

  • Sharing market intelligence on customer trends and recent research
  • Converting new enquiries into instructions
  • Roundtable Discussion
  • 10 tips to improve your conversion rate
  • Summary

Mark will primarily be discussing the sophistication of modern-day phishing emails – sharing a variety of real-life examples – and explaining how to help your team recognise them before they accidentally trigger a major security incident.

How to respond to an attack and support your team in preventing future cyber security incidents – National Police Chiefs' Council's National Cyber PROTECT Coordinator

The National Police Chiefs' Council's National Cyber PROTECT Coordinator will be explaining how to respond to a cyber incident; and highlighting some of the risks law firms should be making their teams aware of to help reduce the likelihood of a future cyber security incident.
