Rainmaker PRO for Associate


Install rainmaking ambition into your new career

The rainmaker brings in clients winning accounts by magic as it is not apparent how this activity is caused. It means additional fees earned from sources outside established commercial channels. This can be by connecting with people in non-traditional or hidden markets. A rainmaker is usually a key figure in the practice who is highly regarded.


Develop a pattern to how you source fees

Rainmaker PRO gives you a template to develop your network that links to your future market. This supports a niche or specialism. It focuses you to where potential fees are likely sourced and guides you to model your practice development actions against those of successful rainmakers.


Manage your own business development path

Modelling your actions against the ‘A’ players within the profession will enable you to become more valuable more quickly. Rainmaker PRO delivers a method to organise and measure your progress. Build a network that will support a referral system that produces introductions.


View your network of connections in relation to your business development goal

Rainmaker PRO enables you to be an early adopter of rainmaking habits by mapping out your network of connections each month. It produces a personalized overview supporting you to develop your value to the practice.


Measure your fee earning future potential

Every firm needs rainmakers and Rainmaker PRO supports you to develop the additional value you bring by showing you can create and deliver fee earning opportunities. Your recognition in the practice, beyond competence in law, will accrue as a rainmaker.

  • C4DI is one of the UK’s leading technology incubators. A challenge many of our businesses have is a lack of a focussed approach to business development. To help with that, Bob Spence has delivered a number of business development programmes at C4DI based on the 5next method that helps build a network of connections in a structured fashion.

    The software 5next has developed supports this approach and I believe it is a groundbreaking method of business development. In fast-growing businesses, time is rare and so any connections need to be developed in an effective and efficient way.
