Heather Townsend

Heather Townsend helps professionals, mainly lawyers and accountants, become the Go-To-Expert. Unusually for someone with an Engineering Degree, she accidentally became a writer and used her knowledge on social media to write the current best-selling and award-winning book on networking, The FT Guide To Business Networking. (100+ five star reviews on Amazon.)

In 2012, the book she had always wanted to write, co-authored with Jo Larbie, ‘How to make partner and still have a life’ was published. People frequently talk about her as someone who really knows her stuff – which may be the reason she have, over the last decade, worked with over 300 partners, coached and trained over 1000 professionals at every level of the UK’s most ambitious professional practices.

Her third book, ‘The Go-To-Expert, How to market and sell yourself to win business’, is due to be published by the FT in March 2014. Her articles & quotes regularly appear in the press, e.g. FT, Guardian, Legal Week, and Accountancy Age.
