Are you a professional consultant looking for a predictable and reliable source of consulting leads and prospective clients, a firm leader looking for ways to grow your client base, or a consulting executive with business development responsibilities? If so, then this book will show you the fastest and most effective strategy for achieving those goals.
The secret, consulting expert Michael Moshiri explains, is to never chase clients. As the author discovered during his decades of consulting with the world's biggest professional service firms - Deloitte, EY, and PwC - what distinguishes highly successful service professionals from everyone else is their ability to use "Catalysts" to attract and motivate clients to want to buy services from them.
In Never Chase Clients Again, Moshiri lays out the specific steps - and inner mindset - he uses to leverage Catalysts to rapidly find, reach, and attract the most highly-qualified clients with minimal effort.
Moshiri distinguishes the most effective business development actives from the random, ineffective, and wasteful interactions usually associated with "networking" and "lead generation." He then distills his proven strategies for getting clients into an easy-to-follow system (called the "Client Catalyst System") and a set of practical principles, including:
In the course of the book, Moshiri outlines the timeless strategies shared by the world's biggest and most successful consulting firms. The step-by-step instructions and practical principles in this book will help you to leverage the power of Catalysts to find new clients, win more business, and grow your consulting firm - quickly, predictably, and efficiently.
Never Chase Clients Again is destined to take its place alongside Managing The Professional Service Firm and The Trusted Advisor as a business classic for consulting firm leaders, seasoned consultants, and business development professionals alike.

Stop Marketing. Start Getting Clients.
Your level of success as a consultant hinges first and foremost on your ability to find highly qualified clients to serve. In fact, this is the most critical function in any consulting practice, regardless of size or industry.
So why do so many consultants rely on unpredictable, uncontrollable, and unreliable methods such as content marketing and social media campaigns to find clients?
Admittedly, these marketing methods do have merit and will produce some results in many cases. But they cannot produce predictable access to highly qualified clients in a reliable, repeatable, and controllable way. Why? Because selling professional services is fundamentally different than selling products.
The fact is that consulting has always been, and will always remain, a business that is built on personal (analog) relationships. And you cannot build personal relationships with prospective clients through clever marketing.
The systems, strategies, and principles in this book, on the other hand, can and will provide you with a proven, predictable, and controllable means for finding highly qualified clients, regardless of the type of consulting that you engage in, and without the enormous investment of time, resources, and effort required by new and often-hyped marketing strategies.
