Presenting With Other Consultants

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, April 23, 2013

I've found another consultant with a complimentary business. We are considering doing joint workshops or speaking. Any suggestions on the best way to work together on this?

Collaborating with another consultant can bring an expertise, talent and style that compliments you and your knowledge. Here are 4 lessons learned by consultant Johanna Rothman when she collaborated with other consultants.

  • Other consultants have a valuable perspective to share with your audience, either when presenting together or as a quoted resource at another time.
  • Presenting with others requires more presentation design, who does what and when, and practice. It will make you both better and the audience benefits from multiple perspectives on the same topic.
  • Presentations are part education and part performer. This is where the blend of styles and skills can benefit all involved.
  • You can reach more people together than you can separately. You probably have different groups to tap into to better fill your audience, especially if you are considering public workshops.

TIP:When presenting with another consultant, choose someone who compliments you - in style, subject and expertise. Know the reputation of the person you plan to partner with and make sure it is one you want to be affiliated with.

It is also a good idea to sit in on a presentation your prospective partner is giving. After seeing the style, skill level and content, you can better determine if partnering with this consultant is a good fit for you and your business.
