Larry Stroud is one of the most experienced legal and accounting Business Development Coaches in Canada.
He brings an invaluable perspective to his business development coaching, in addition to his advisory work with professional services firms. He is widely sought out for his spot-on advice and steadying guidance on business development.
Larry trained with a large international firm of accountants in Toronto where he obtained his CPA, CA and first moved into the Corporate Recovery and Insolvency Practice. He then transferred to their Bermuda office where he focused on Reinsurance and Off-shore financial entities. He then joined another firm of international accountants and at the age of 30 became one of the youngest partners in the firm.
Larry’s career later led him to London UK and a partnership in a European firm of accountants and advisors. Larry was the lead partner for Forensic Investigations and Litigation Support, specializing in the Lloyd’s of London reinsurance market and working with external legal defence teams.
Due to his success in business generation, he was asked to take a ‘career pivot’ in that firm to specialize in strategically establishing and leading the firm’s business development and marketing – Larry became the firm’s first Business Development and Marketing Partner.
Larry returned to Canada in 2000 and founded Korverge, now a successfulfirm focused solely as a Business Development advisory for lawyers and accountants.
