Introducing the ABLE Academy

The ABLE Academy is a way for firms that have signed up for ABLE to further enhance their subscription though a series of onsite training programs delivered by The Growth Partnership. Built around the concept of nurturing your CRoPs (Clients, Referral opportunities, Prospects) the ABLE Academy curriculum consists of four 1-day modules that go deeper into each of the 4 “Disciplines” of marketing:

  • Session 1: ABLE Onboarding: Unleashing Talent and Making the Case for Business Development
  • Session 2: The Loyalty Effect: How to Build a Culture of Exceptional Client Service
  • Session 3: Networking Essentials: Building an Effective Referral Channel and Robust Personal Brands
  • Session 4: The Challenger Sale: How to Identify and Convert Highly Desirable Prospects

Each of these modules qualify for 8 hours of NASBA certified CPE and are delivered in a “workshop” format where participants use ABLE to bring the learning concepts out of the classroom and into their daily activities.

Each module runs $5,000 (+ out of pocket facilitator travel expenses) and can be scheduled at any time. Firms who commit to running all 4 modules within an 18 month period qualify for a 20% discount, bringing down the total investment to $16,000 for all four classes (32 hours of CPE).
