    This program will provide practical insight on what to say in your initial consultation about scope and fees. It will also cover how the use of staged pricing and supplemental service agreements can improve both your clients' satisfaction and your comfort with employing alternative fee arrangements.

    Take this webinar to learn how to:

    • Approach the discussion of fees and scope of work at the initial consultation
    • Clearly define the scope of work you'll perform under the alternative fee arrangement
    • Use staged pricing and supplemental services agreements when the scope of work cannot be fully defined at the outset of the engagement or where the scope of work changes during the engagement
