NextGen

Future Proof Your Firm_

Position your business for success today and long-term.

We care about the future of MRINetwork — and that means that we’re committed to yours.

As you build and lead a successful search firm, you’re constantly thinking about what’s next — but planning for the distant future can easily be deprioritized to more immediate needs. Our NextGen Program fills that gap by connecting today’s owners with tomorrow’s potential, and supporting both sides of the equation with effective succession planning.

Live Events

Connect with fellow managing partners and prospective leaders at face-to-face conferences, where you can build a community and gain the knowledge you need for the next step — whether that’s a step towards management or retirement.

Virtual Training Sessions

The difference between contributing to a firm and leading one requires key skills that you can’t always learn on the job. With monthly virtual training sessions and topical small groups, you can connect with industry peers in similar positions and learn from one another along the way.

One-to-One Coaching

Individual coaching from the MRI team can guide you through succession planning, one calculated step at a time. Fill your own personal gaps, glean insights from industry experts, and put in the hard work to prepare yourself and your firm for the future you want.



NextGen is helping me to feel invigorated in terms of taking the necessary steps to be a leader for my organization and part of the future of MRINetwork. The conversations and connection have meant everything to my leadership and success.

The NextGen program leaders do an amazing job one-on-one with you — then they get you leveraged and connected with the other office structures, so you can see what they are doing, grow from them, learn from them, and change.

The NextGen program is outstanding. Kudos to MRI. The fact that we have a program where my successor can be with 30 other people going through the same challenges, I think is invaluable. Hearing it from his NextGen group — you can’t beat that experience.
