Olmstead & Associates today announced that Dr. John W. Olmstead, president of the legal management consulting group, will speak at a session on the topic of “Improving Client Service Through Effective Interpersonal Communications” at a seminar sponsored by The Horton Group of Chicago. In this uncertain economic climate, maintaining a solid client base is critical to remaining successful. The best way to maintain your client base is by exhibiting exceptional client service through effective communication. Providing outstanding service on an ongoing basis is one of the best ways for law firms to differentiate themselves, manage the overall client experience and improve loyalty and retention. Poor communication skills within law firms cause management problems, cause bar complaints and impede best in class client service. Dr. John Olmstead shares insights and tips on improving interpersonal communications skills both within the office and with clients and colleagues.
The seminar will be held March 13, 2009, at 8:00 a.m., at the Metropolitan Club, Illinois Room, Sears Tower, 67th Floor, in Chicago, Illinois.
