Explore important start-up issues and reflect on your own consulting skills. Determine if consulting is an appropriate career choice for you and come away with an understanding of the skills you need to be successful. Key topics include personal characteristics; marketing; business planning; setting up shop; managing fees, time, and getting paid; and maintaining work-life balance. Valuable examples, worksheets, and stories will be shared. Through mini-lectures, small group discussion, interactive games, and personal reflection, participants will plan a start-up strategy.
As a participant in this workshop, you need to have some evaluation experience and an understanding of the critical relationship between an evaluator and a client. The material presented is practical in nature and you will be asked to relate to relevant experiences in the field.
