Rainmaker PRO for Junior Partner


Build rainmaking potential into your career

‘If you are unwilling to prospect, you are an order-taker. If you refuse to create opportunities, you are not a rainmaker. You are a rain barrel’. Rainmakers work with two disciplines: opportunity creation and opportunity capture’ Rainmaker PRO supports you in this.


Identify the pattern of how you currently source fees

Rainmaker PRO supports you develop the connections that link to your future clients. This will support your niche or specialism. It focuses on where your potential fees are likely sourced.


Introduce your business development path

Model your actions against the methods of the ‘A’ players within the profession. This will enable you to become more valuable more quickly. The market requires a high level of business development competence and Rainmaker PRO delivers method that organises, implements and measures your progress.


Engage your network of connections with your bespoke business development path

Rainmaker PRO maps out your rainmaking progress each month. It produces your networking and referral marketing overview to develop your career. It improves your professional relationship management to pro rainmaker level.


Develop your fee earning capacity

Every firm needs additional rainmaking capacity. Some lawyers dislike the idea of having to create opportunity. They may even believe it is for someone else to do the prospecting. The additional value a lawyer brings is their ability to both create and deliver fee earning opportunities. The rewards in law accrue to the rainmaker, not the rain barrel.

  • 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.
