As a M / SM, how did you go about growing contacts outside of project work? For contacts that did not know via previous project work, how did you transition into how you (or firm) can help them?

Many of my best clients today (as individuals) are people I met as an associate and manager building real relationships through project work, which I then sustained and invested in to grow further. Make it a point to keep in touch and invest behind your client contacts. Far harder to find clients by other means.

My major factors are WLB, good work, good company and good exit opportunities.
