About the Practice Development Workshop
The PDW is a 24 part seminar on every aspect of the consulting profession delivered monthly over two years.  Everyone is welcome and IMC Members have access to previous sessions.
Come, learn, share, grow.
 
Workshop Focus
Learn from experts, stay current, exchange ideas, and share your expertise.
 
The next workshop in the series is:
 
PDW 11 - Attention Grabbing Communications

 

Even the best marketing message will do nothing for your consultancy unless you manage to find effective ways to reach your target audience. Standing out and getting noticed often prove the most difficult communication challenges that consultants face.

This month’s workshop discusses what it takes to grab the attention of the media and your prospective clients:

  • Achieve great media coverage for free
  • Determine your personal 'communications comfort zone'
  • Get speaking engagements that are worth your time
  • Write press releases that get printed
