First I'd say make 110% sure you do all those prerequisites. You wouldn't be the first person to neglect delivery in an effort to impress. You will get zero credit for sales efforts if you don't have delivery down flat. So with that warning, I'd say just keep an eye out for potential other needs at your client. Engage clients in non-project related conversations about other priorities at the company, what else they've done in their careers, etc. Then proactively identify anything to the Partner. If you have client laptops, peruse the client's intranet site for news on key leadership changes, etc. And ask the Partner what you can do.
