Disruption and Volatility in Professional Services


In this webinar Ben Kent will discuss the opportunities and challenges for individuals working or hoping to work in the legal, consultancy and accountancy professions.

Has there ever been a more exciting, and daunting time to work in a professional firm? 

Disruptive forces combine to make the future less certain for professional firms. New competitors, with radically different business models, are beginning to take market share, and as a result are recalibrating expectations about the client and adviser relationship. Automation and artificial intelligence raise fundamental questions about the role of professional expertise.


1. The disruptive forces reshaping the professions
a. New sources of demand
b. New competitors
c. Technology, AI and automation
d. Shifting client expectations

2. The skills and mindset professionals need to get hired and promoted by professional firms 
a. The T-shaped adviser
b. The 7 habits of commerciality
