There's considerable guidance available on how to become an independent consultant, but very little on what’s needed to be successful in a professional consulting organization. And these two experiences, while sharing some commonalities, are quite different.

In fact, the consulting firm experience is often quite a surprise to the new consultant.

Join Larry Cahill to better prepare your new consultants. You'll review the essential elements of professional consulting and discuss ways that new consultants can succeed, but also potentially fail, in meeting the expectations of your firm.

TAKEAWAYS:

  • Getting Oriented: Knowing the Hot Buttons
  • Financial and Contract Management: The Great Unknown
  • Managing Projects: Scope, Schedule and Budget
  • Client Relationships: Ten Tips for Success

The advice presented is based on Larry Cahill’s 40-years of consulting experience; both the good and the bad. Mr. Cahill is the author of Can I Borrow Your Watch? A Beginner’s Guide to Succeeding in a Successful Consulting Organization, published by the ACEC in 2017. A fuller treatment of the webinar’s topics, as well as a comprehensive listing of additional learning resources, can be found in that text.
