Bruce La Fetra, The Client Whisperer, Eastwood Strategy Advisors
Bruce La Fetra is The Client Whisperer. He works with the leaders of law, finance, and other professional services who can’t scale or can’t exit because they depend on a single rainmaker. Positioning their firm to attract more of their Best Clients sets in motion a virtuous cycle where more people generate business, profitability improves, and sales cycles shorten as the firm attracts more of its Best Clients.
Bruce’s Think Like Your Best Clients approach evolved from developing marketing strategy for dozens of firms and interviewing hundreds of their Best Clients over the past 20 years.
Bruce earned a BA in Economics from Claremont McKenna College and an MBA from The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. He is also a trained facilitator.
