Local / Regional Events


SAC members have always gotten great value from meeting with other members in both informal meetups (typically local) and events covering larger geographies and/or more structured situations (typically regional). If you are interested in getting together to discuss business issues, to role play specific business situations or to listen to experts, contact your ambassador. Our goal is to encourage these collaborations wherever feasible.

SAC Europe – Building a Thriving International Consultancy from Europe
Location: Dublin, Ireland

Calling all Europeans and non-Europeans who will be in Europe in June!

The first Society for the Advancement of Consulting (SAC) event in Europe was held in Dublin, Ireland on Friday 21st June 2019 and was open to members and non-members alike.

At this event, we  addressed the following hot topics identified by many of our European members as key to building and sustaining a thriving practice in our complex and multicultural continent. The discussions were led by experienced European practitioner members of SAC:

  • International Consultancy Work – how to expand your consultancy business beyond the borders of your home country.
  • Advisory Work – how to transition your practice from hands on, high labour to becoming a trusted advisor.

There was a nominal charge of €25 to cover venue expenses and breakfast.
