This workshop will give attendees the tools they need to start the direct client acquisition process. Presenter Judy Jenner, co-author of The Entrepreneurial Linguist, will discuss the pros and cons of working with direct customers, what you need to know to find them, how to find them, what not to do, how to get organised, how to grow and nurture the relationships you have formed, how to turn clients into repeat customers, and much more.
