Jumpstart Your New Year’s Business with Expert Network Consulting Brokers
If you’re looking for a way to augment your business for this New Year look no further than our Monday, January 18 MCF meeting. Our guest speaker did just that just over a year ago when he started his own new consulting firm, SageBerry Consulting, LLC, after leaving a successful career with the prestigious retailer, Neiman Marcus. Today Steven Dennis advises retail, consumer and luxury brands on customer-centric growth strategy and marketing as well as serving as an executive-in-residence at SMU’s Cox School of Business.
In Steven’s forward-thinking presentation he will share with us how to use expert network consulting brokers as a complement to your consulting business. Using industry leader Gerson Lehrman Group as a case study, he will describe how to use GLG’s Consulting Management Platform to gain access to the largest marketplace of consulting requests in the world.
So, what is the GLG Consulting Group? It is a council made up of industry-focused networks of executives, physicians, scientists, engineers, attorneys, market researchers and other professionals from around the world. Members of the GLG Councils are compensated for consulting with global business and investment leaders on topics within their areas of expertise and provide their industry-specific knowledge through telephone consultations, online surveys and in-person meetings among other consulting methods.
Many of GLG’s clients are private equity companies, but also include other consulting firms and direct B2B and B2C companies as well. Membership is free to consultants and provides opportunities to act as an expert as well as to educate business, government and investment leaders. As a Council member you are placed in one or more of GLG’s 14 different council specialties, including such categories as automotive, technology and transportation.
In just over a year working with GLG, Steven Dennis has augmented his own business by executing more than 50 GLG phone consultations, leading GLG roundtables in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, conducting more than a dozen private consultation visits and securing one extended engagement. In his presentation he will tell you how you can augment your practice too by:
- Understanding the various expert network players
- Becoming a GLG Council Member
- Finding projects, including choosing your area of expertise and setting your own fees
- Understanding the contracting and payment process
- Marketing your expertise via member programs and writing GLG news
In a New Year facing a New Era of business growth challenges, don’t miss this opportunity to explore new ways to energize and augment your consulting business by giving it an incredible jump start.
