For small, boutique firms, an informed approach to developing constructive relationships with major consulting firms is essential to a well-rounded business strategy. The value of such alliances is obvious: broader access to selected target markets, enhanced visibility and credibility, more robust delivery capacity, and more. But, how can independent and small firm consultants more proactively and successfully develop productive business relationships and alliances with large, brand name firms? How and why do diverse consulting teams, partnerships and alliances work best? And, how can we elicit even better performance and outcomes for clients, large firms, and smaller firms alike?
The Institute of Management Consultants National Capital Region Chapter (IMC NCR) offers IMC USA members a unique opportunity to gather insights on this dynamic from the vantage point of executives from some of DC’s top branded consulting firms. Using a panel discussion format, the evening’s program will address:
- Large firm business models and where and why independent consultants fit
- Consulting projects that benefit from teaming and partnering between diverse firms
- Unique benefits that smaller firms provide to teams in the current business environment
- Best practices for small firms to engage large firms to promote mutually beneficial teaming and partnerning.
Moderated by IMCNCR President Raymond Suarez CMC®, our panel will include:
- Carmen Ortiz-McGhee, Executive Vice President for Sales, Aon (Hewitt) Cornerstone Innovative Solutions
- Alexander Kleinman, Managing Director for Strategy, The Corporate Executive Board
- Joshua Howarth, Regional Vice-President for Staffing and Recruiting, Robert Half International
- Jongwon Park, Associate Director of Science and Technology Policy, SRI International
