Weather seemed to factor into almost everyone’s travel into Chicago last week for the P3 conference, and unfortunately, it resulted in the cancellation of our keynote speaker for the morning. Instead, we were treated to an open and interactive discussion – as one of the speakers joked “We wouldn’t be business leaders if we didn’t know how to adapt.”

Not only am I bringing you a rainmaking recommendation from expert Jaimie Field today, I also got to see Jaimie in person this afternoon at the Legal Marketing Association lunch for the NJ City Group Meeting! Jaimie has been battling bronchitis, among other things, so we’re reaching back into the archives again today for a post, which is particularly apropos. Jaimie will be back with new rainmaking recommendations in July!
Not to frighten you, but this year is officially half over. What have you done to advance your Rainmaking skills?

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the LMA’s P3 conference, which brings together “pricing, project management and practice innovation experts to discuss the use of various tactics to explore solutions to real issues face by law firms today.”
I’ll be publishing some recaps for the conference in the coming days, since there was a LOT of high-level meaty topics and conversation happening in and around the event. But today, I wanted to bring you my two takeaways from the conference. As always, there are more than just two to discuss, but we’re focusing on these today! Feel free to add any other takeaways in the comments below, or just add your comments to the discussion!

WestJet has done it again.
You may remember this airline from their video campaign that went viral during the holiday season – they asked passengers awaiting a flight what was on their Christmas list, and while they flew across the country, employees on either end worked feverishly to make every wish come true. It was sweet and inspiring, even if some thought it was entirely contrived.
This Father’s Day, they’re at it again. Make sure you have some tissues handy, because even grown men are tearing up at this:
