Dr. Mallach’s book was the first guide to corporate programs for influencing consultants and analysts, in 1987, and the new edition of this landmark book is a unique step-by-step guide to what really works in analyst relations.
The course based on this book is an excellent development opportunity. It is for managers that have AR experience but who would benefit from developing a solid methodology for optimising the effectiveness of their analyst relations. We’ll show you how to make your company easy for industry analysts and consultants to work with?”so they’ll recommend you, not a competitor!
Attendees at the session will cover these topics:
- 1] The impact of analysts. This session explains who analysts and consultants are. It will show exactly how advisors influence sales. You’ll see how industry analysts and consultants impact your sales.
- 2] What analysts and consultants want. This session shows the relationship between the goals and means of an analyst/consultant relations program and the information content that analysts require. You’ll learn what their “hot buttons” are as well as their emotional “red flags” – so you don’t accidentally hit one when you do something that is perfect for a different public.
- 3] Information channels for reaching analysts. This sessions discusses attitude factors with analysts, the inbound value of analysts to your firm and the growing importance of the “consultant difference.”
- 4] Planning and alignment. Internally focused analyst relations activities are the foundation for putting your analyst/consultant relations program in place. This session shows how analyst/consultant relations in your organization relies on showing how valuable your analyst/consultant relations program is — and shows you how to prove it.
