Key Note - Success Is Not A Solo Performance

There are no successful hermits! We all need to “connect” with others to achieve ultimate success! This keynote shifts the focus from and directing to collaborating with peers, teammates and stakeholders as well as changing the transactional focus to the relational reality of business. In so doing, attending law firm owners will gain more from their qualifying, relationship building, dealing with objections and closing skills. The main learning is that the quality of your firm is directly linked to the quality of your Communication skills. It is your network that determines your Net Worth! Your network and referral building leads to greater client retention and repeat business as well as enhanced communication skills for your teammates

Dinesh went on to graduate and is now an emergency doctor at Gold Coast University Hospital. He is the first medical graduate in Queensland with quadriplegia. Dinesh is also a lawyer, a disability advocate, a researcher, and a lover of cars, chocolate and '90s hip-hop. In 2021 Dinesh was Queensland Australian of the Year.
