Lunch & Learn Webinar: Referrals...Without Asking

Copy of Copy of WCAALUNCH&LEARN.png

Tune in on October 23 at Noon ET* for our WCAA October Lunch & Learn: Referrals…Without Asking with Stacey Brown Randall, Chief Referral Strategist of Growth By Referrals.

There are many ways to generate leads or prospects to fill your pipeline. From traditional business development tactics like cold calling, networking events, leads groups to newer techniques like social selling, social media ads and thought leadership. While many of the traditional methods and new techniques work, one method is consistently overlooked.

Referrals.

The reason generating referrals from clients and our network is typically overlooked is because of old-school advice we have believed for years. Either we have been taught referrals are random, sporadic, something you cannot control, or we have been taught the only way to control them is to ask for them.

But what if there was another way? What if you didn’t have to ask? Join Stacey Brown Randall for a discussion on how to generate referrals without asking and the steps to take now to start receiving referrals.

*Webinar will be broadcast at 11 AM CT, 10 AM MT and 9 AM PT on October 23.

About Peter Lang, CPA

Peter Lang, CPA, is an accountant who specializes in the unique accounting challenges faced by artistic professionals. Designers and other artistic professionals may find that ordinary CPAs are simply unequipped for their needs, but with 16 years of tax and accounting experience under his belt, Peter is a proven expert in helping interior designers do their taxes and all the other financial duties that art school didn’t teach them.

Peter moved to Boston in 2004 to pursue his Master in Taxation degree. It was there that he began working at a large cutthroat accounting firm, where he was written up for the first and only time in his professional life for “helping people too much.” He then moved on to a small firm where he quickly became bored with the life of a traditional CPA and noticed that interior designers were consistently underserved by standard CPAs, so he decided to pursue his dream of running his own firm and settling down with his family and business in Rhode Island.
