Course Overview

In this course participants will learn how to develop relationships that foster trust, build long-term, sustainable, and profitable client relationships. This is not done by responding to RFPs, but through developing and adopting a relationship-based process — STRT. This journey occurs in phases: Scout, Engage, Position, and Capture. Your relationships strengthen as you move through the four phases of STRT and toward becoming the client’s preferred provider. STRT moves us from a transactional approach to business development, i.e. from pursuing projects approach to a relational one – building relationships. Why relationships? Because relationships continue to generate revenue and new opportunities over the long-term. Building great client relationships represents one of the best sustainable business practices Professional Services Providers and organizations can employ. The Business Development Manager Training Program enables profit and not-for profit businesses and organizations to achieve successful, efficient and disciplined business and proposal development activities.
