The APSMA mentoring program is designed to provide a platform through which industry mentors can provide professional advice and support to aspiring professional services marketers
The best mentor and mentee relationships are often those which develop naturally on their own accord over time. The APSMA mentoring program is designed to simply kick-start the mentoring process by connecting mentees to mentors they would perhaps be unable to connect with outside the program. Once connected, it is up to the mentor and mentee as to how they structure and maintain their professional relationship. It is expected that many relationships will continue to grow and prosper once the six month program is complete.

Why firms with the leading industry reputations win
One of the big trends we have seen across the professions over recent years has been for firms changing their ‘go to market strategy’ from an internal product focus (expertise/ service line/ practice group) to a client centric view of the world (industry sector/ market).
And the benefit is clear, as the 2016 beatonbenchmarks™ research shows that firms with the strongest industry reputations are winning more work, because this is a key driver of choice across law, accounting, engineering and management consulting professions.
This article looks at why industry experience and reputation wins work and what this means for developing and executing your firm’s industry strategy.
