SPOTLIGHT ON ABA WOMEN RAINMAKERS
Mid-Career Workshop: Sharpen Your Business Development Skills
By Jamie Spannhake, ABA Women Rainmakers Chair
A s part of the ABA Women Rainmakers 20th anniversary celebration this year, the LPM Section will present the 2010 ABA Women Rainmakers Mid-Career Workshop on October 22-24 at the J.W. Marriott in Washington, D.C.
The Mid-Career Workshop is a three-day event that targets an experienced audience, providing opportunities to sharpen rainmaking and business skills through hands-on programs, networking sessions and roundtable and small group discussions. This year’s workshop will provide comprehensive programs in three areas: rainmaking skills, business strategy, and personal development as both a rainmaker and a lawyer who understands the business of law.
■ Rainmaking Skills . The programs in this track will help attendees further develop skills in areas such as impression management, client communication, strategic alliances and building a positive reputation.
■ Business Strategy. In this track, attendees will focus on the business of law, with topics such as financial issues, innovative business strategies, risk analysis, and the RFP process.
■ Personal Development . This features one-on-one coaching sessions, small group sessions and a complimentary workbook, all of which will serve as a catalyst to develop personal and professional goals and evaluate and expand business development skills.
The mission of ABA Women Rainmakers is to educate professional women about marketing and business development, to provide mentoring opportunities for members, and to provide networking opportunities to build personal and professional relationships.
