The Pareto Principle: 80% of consequences come from 20% of causes

This November TGS hosted over 60 hours of live online content to replace our traditional annual conference where TGS members meet to create the connections that create business.

We are attaching a link here for you to download our ‘TGS Month Summary Booklet which will give free access to all recordings.


The Pareto Principle

The Pareto Principle states that for many outcomes, roughly 80% of consequences come from 20% of causes (Mr Pareto called it the “vital few”).  So in the TGS team, we have been analysing the statistics form all the 60 hours of the TGS live events to uncover the famous 20% value of TGS Month. 

The most vital events of TGS Month were: the Doing Business In webinars, The GAP series of webinars on how to Market, Sell and Deliver advisory services and the TGS Quality One Page Plan for business development session. Each of these events contained pragmatic, directly useful tools and advice to help member firms increase the return on investment of their network membership.

TGS works to help make network memberships a major vector of your business development.


TGS ‘Doing Business In’ webinars are increasingly popular

Doing Business in Canada/Germany

‘TGS Doing Business In’ (TGS DBI) webinars are the occasion for TGS members to gather the international network. Because of the pandemic, it has been complicated to travel for the last 2 years and TGS DBI allow us to travel virtually by discovering how to do business abroad, with a presentation of the country.

In addition, TGS member firms themselves present their countries which allows members to stay in interaction despite the absence of face-to-face conferences. We also have prestigious guests during these webinars (Chambers of Commerce, Embassy, Clients …)

TGS DBI Germany for example was managed by Fred Berner, CEO of the French-German Chamber of Commerce. He explained that there are many development opportunities in key sectors supported by the German market such as R&D, future energy systems, electric vehicles and so on.

DBI Canada was a success also because of the many topics discussed and snappy delivery: Why do business in Canada?, S+C Partners: A Proud Member of the Global TGS Network , stable economy, strong workforce , Gateway to North America,…

You can watch each of the TGS DBI webinars on the TGS YouTube channel.
