So You Want to Be a Consultant Webinars

So You Want to Be a Consultant –
Everything you wanted to know but weren’t sure who to ask.

One reason why there are so many jobs open at senior levels in corporations is because seasoned professionals have decided they’ve had enough of the corporate world. These folks may be “retiring,” but that doesn’t mean they’re going out to pasture. Expect to see many of these people decide to try to build a consulting practice.

What makes the difference in who will be successful? Knowing how to network, to differentiate yourself with marketing, and how to set profitable fees. We’ll cover each of these topics and more in our new webinar series.
