Product description


"I wish I'd had access to a book like this before I became a partner." (Charles H Green, author of The Trusted Advisor)

"Crystal clear. Razor sharp. And intensely practical. This book is an absolute must for anyone who wants to become a partner, wants to make themselves a better partner, or wants to grow future partners as part of their succession plan." (Steve Pipe, Professional service firm strategist and author of The UK’s Best Accountancy Practices)

"Highly recommended read for aspiring partners and HR professionals. Inspirational advice for creating a new generation of successful partnerships." (Yvonne Hardiman, Partner and HR Director, Pictons Solicitors LLP)

"This book sets out what you need to do to objectively decide you want to be a partner and then guides you through the process to get you there." (Darryn Hedges, Global Finance Director of Marks & Clerk LLP)

"How to Make Partner and Still Have a Life provides practical guidance on the things you need to think about and do as you develop your career. It is a valuable contribution to the very limited guidance on what you need to do if it's your ambition to make partner." (Wendy Walton, Partner BDO LLP)

"As an award winning and people development focussed firm, I have to say that this book will become required reading for our aspiring people. The insight and avoidance of "guru-speak" make the case studies very real. An essential read for anyone at or seeking a senior position in a professional practice." (Peter Gillman, Managing Director Price Bailey LLP)

"Another must-have read from Heather Townsend. A book that looks at the reality of what it is to be a Partner and provides essential practical advice for anyone considering promotion." (Claire Martin, Solicitor)

"Original, clear, concise and brilliantly written, this handbook is packed with invaluable insights. An absolute must-read (and potential life saver) for anyone pursuing a professional career. From long experience, Larbie and Townsend explain exactly how to reach both success AND that elusive work-life balance many top professionals so desperately need." (Sunny Stout-Rostron DProf, Executive Coach; Director: Sunny Stout-Rostron Associates, and Research Mentor with the Institute of Coaching at Harvard/McLean Medical School.)

"There is so much of value to partners and future partners in this book that I don't know where to start! It is a book, like Heathers first, that I will recommend to all my professional services clients. Heather and Jo's experience of working on the inside of a professional firm shines through and every chapter contains something of practical value. The real life case studies will convince you that you can make partner and still have a life. I'm even putting some of their tips into practice in my own life." (David Tovey, Author of Principled Selling)

"Life is about choices. If you know of this book and choose to ignore it, you do so at your peril!. This book is the bible for every ambitious person in professional services. Too many would be partners 'live to work'. 'How To Make Partner and Still Have A Life', makes an outstanding contribution towards getting control of your time and thinking in order to 'work to live'. It is a must buy." (Ian Cooper, Author of the 'Financial Times Guide To Business Development' and 'How To Be A Time Master'.)
