    SWOTing Business Development Opportunities

    Thursday, November 22nd 
    1:00 - 2:30 PM ET

    Summary:

    This webinar will cover how to use publicly available sources to add value to client background reports. Numerous sources provide generic pre-packaged background reports on companies. In addition to these, many publicly available sources - annual reports, media, governmental public disclosure, etc. - can punch up the value of these reports. This session will demonstrate how to use these sources to assess the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) of a target company, and how to use this information to "SWOT" out potential business development opportunities.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Use publicly available sources to SWOT a target company
    • Isolate lawyer/firm opportunities from target’s SWOT
