Heather Townsend - Author of The Financial Times Guide To Business NetworkingThanks for visiting from Defero Law!  I’m Heather Townsend, the leading global expert in what it takes to move from senior fee earner to partner – and when you get there, stay there.

There are lots of resources for you to explore on the How to Make Partner Website.  If you’re not sure where to start, why not read I want to make partner, where do I start?

I run the Progress to Partner monthly subscription membership site  and I regularly  regularly run programmes for law and accountancy and consultancy firms to help fee earners take the step up to partner, and establish themselves as a new partner, for mid-tier law, accountancy and consultancy firms.

Progress to Partner membership helps lawyers, accountants and consultants to:

  • Find the time to work ON their career development and business development
  • Grow their client portfolio
  • Develop a strong personal case so that they are seen as the next partner
  • Get onto partner track rather than been seen as only a “safe pair of hands”
  • Build, write and pitch their business case
  • Prepare for the partnership panel interviews

I am also the author of 6 books including ‘How to make partner and still have a life‘ (co-authored with Jo Larbie), ‘Poised for partnership‘, ‘The Financial Times guide to business networking‘ and ‘The Go-To Expert‘. My books have sold over 20,000 copies globally and been translated into over 6 different languages and attracted over 200 five star reviews on Amazon.
