The Discussion

Yesterday Professional Services Firms tackled digital transition for their clients. But what will they do tomorrow? The dynamics of supply and demand, people and services, are undergoing a paradigm shift. So, how can you successfully adapt your core model to nurture and create new business in the future?

Traditionally, the Professional Services industry has relied on human skills to meet clients’ needs. 43% of Professional Service workforce is expected to be freelance by 2020 (Accenture) and ML & RPA is continuing disrupt the entire sector. As the traditional roles of your employees rapidly evolve, how can you protect the routes to expertise and education that form the bedrock of your organisation?

Secondly, as clients graduate from transitional problems and demand more specialised, more complex & more modular solutions, the pressure of matching the right expertise to projects has never been higher. Margins are further squeezed by pricing demands moving from billable hours towards fixed-price outcomes. How can you protect your revenues from the evolving demands of your clients?

If this is an issue you want to address, join us. We’re meeting at The Charlotte Street Hotel on the 28th February, 6:30pm, for a private dinner discussion, where we’ll be asking: 

  • How can you successfully adapt your business model for the digital world of tomorrow?


  • How can you continue to foster education & expertise in your company? 


  • Will embracing innovation dismantle your core values?
