We help professionals in practice like you to make partner – and when they get there, stay there.

You know, lawyers, accountants, architects, surveyors and consultants. People just like you. You need career advice from people who understand exactly what it’s like, working in a professional service firm, with targets to meet and no time to work on your career.

We are committed to helping you:

  • Demystify what it means to make partner and give you the confidence and clarity to progress your career
  • Eliminate your self-doubt, and increase your inner confidence and self-esteem so you are able to just ‘go for it’
  • Finally achieve your ambition of making partner
  • Get back in control of your time so you can achieve your business and personal goals
  • Learn to become a rainmaker and build up a partner-sized client portfolio
  • Realise your potential and be seen as ‘the one to watch’
  • Build up a cast-iron business case for partnership

We understand how it feels to….

  • Work extremely hard for little recognition or appreciation
  • Be seen as a work asset to be sweated not developed
  • See more junior members of staff get promoted ahead of you
  • Hear someone else take all the credit for your own work
  • Not get the promotion or pay rise you deserve but see a team member get it instead. Particularly when you know you are technically much better than them.
  • Not know what you need to do to move your career forward
  • Hit your head against a brick wall when others are progressing their career faster than you by not playing by the rules

Ready to get started? Take our Partnership Readiness Assessment

Get noticed as "one to watch", unlock your partnership potential and do everything you need to win that next promotion


Your firm has never helped much on business development, let alone given much though on how to network and win business in a virtual, digital world. If you can show you are making the effort to win work and get new clients, even at this time, you will be noticed for all the right reasons.  The Progress to Partner membership site has courses and guides to help you to network, win work and build your own client portfolio.


Doing great work and meeting your targets is not the way to get promoted. Wherever you are in your career, whether you are wanting to make associate, senior associate or are ready to aim for partner, you need to stand out from your peers for all the right reasons.

You can’t throw together a business case for partnership in a weekend. Well you can, but it won’t get you very far. The How to create a Cast-Iron business Case for Partnership will help you to create your 3-year and 1-year strategy and tell you all you need to know about what makes a good business case for partner.
