The Head Start.

Based upon "The 8 Stages of Successful Executive Search," each webinar we focus on one specific stage, discuss the theory behind it and show you how to do it using Clockwork. 

Webinar: Setting Client Expectations With A Solid Search Strategy

Date: 7 March 2024 @ 2:00 pm ET / 11:00 am PT
Panelists: Dane Stevens and Jack Shirley

This time on The Head Start we will look at setting a rock solid search strategy and why it is the most important part of your search. Your strategy not only serves as a roadmap to guide the entire team and search process, but informs and influences the client experience from the onset. In this webinar we will show you:

  • How to align your client, gain buy-in and set expectations for everyone involved.
  • The key areas to focus on when presenting your search strategy to a client.
  • Why building a target company list matters, and how to present it.
  • A real-life role play of collaborating with a client when setting the strategy.
  • How the strategy will impact every milestone in the search process, even downstream.

This webinar is a follow up to Part 1 and Part 2, where we discussed business development, pitching your firm, and winning new search work. Watch all episodes here on demand.
