Getting away from the office for an afternoon, a day or even a series of days is an annual tradition at many law firms. It offers concentrated time for colleagues to connect with each other, become inspired by the firm's leadership, and learn about the firm's goals for the year.

My business development and client service programs can be tailored to the amount of time desired—from one hour to one full day. Lawyers will return to work energized and ready to apply new learning to their individual marketing and client service efforts, which in turn contributes to the firm's profitability.
Lawyers will reap double the benefits when one (or two) of my seminars is on the retreat docket. They'll earn CLE ethics credits—in any state—while learning creative ways to grow and maintain their book of business.
I tailor my presentations to the needs of specific practice areas and levels of experience. Partners—who want to take their marketing efforts to the next level—and associates—who are learning their responsibility for marketing their practice—will all benefit.
For a change of pace, I also conduct a one-hour keynote called The Business Case for Pro Bono - Make Pro Bono an Integral Part of Your Success. This program demonstrates how taking on pro bono work is not only the right thing to do, but also sharpens individual legal skills and exposes the firm to new business opportunities.
We hired Roy to do a presentation on attorney marketing for my firm’s annual retreat. His expertise, enthusiasm and sense of humor made for a highly entertaining and worthwhile event that was well-received by the attendees. You won't walk out of one of Roy's seminars without at least two or three good ideas to incorporate into your practice.
