Client management is no longer just the responsibility of client managers and partners. Everyone in the firm involved with client work should take personal responsibility for the role they play in managing client expectations and delivery of services.
For firms transitioning from an annual compliance service to an ongoing advisory service with business and personal clients, it’s never been more important to establish clear expectations of client service excellence.
This eLearning course is designed to help accounting / advisory firms and their staff put in place a formal process for managing client relationships in a proactive way.
We’ll provide specific step by step guidelines for accounting and advisory firms to develop their client care program, including development of a client service charter and management of client expectations through engagement and ongoing communication.
