Don't miss our August 12, 2010 Orange County Breakfast!
Going Virtual - Tools for Consultants
 With Joe Sterling, Founder of Sterling Insights, Inc.
Thursday, August 12, Mimi's Café, Irvine, 7:00 to 9:00 a.m.
Ever wish you could be in two places at once? Are you losing revenue because clients don't want to pay for your travel? Too hard to get everyone together? Are attendees of your online meetings multitasking vs. participating?

Anticipating the tight budgets of today's economic climate, Joe Sterling has perfected techniques to facilitate highly effective client meetings, strategic planning sessions, and other gatherings virtually – all from his office in rural east San Diego County. Many of IMC Chapter members are also adapting to virtual meetings. Some are being driven to do so by their clients. We have invited Joe to lead a discussion on how to "go virtual”, the effect this can have on our services and fees, and what's coming down the road.

Join us on August 12, as we learn the secrets of going virtual from Joe Sterling and how we can apply virtual tools to build our own consulting practice. Topics will include:

  • Virtually Unstoppable
    Trends driving remote work for consultants and others.
  • Virtual Distance
    New ways of describing the impact "of going virtual” on organizations.
  • Virtual Visuals
    Do you need visual super glue to keep attention during online meetings?
  • Virtual Tools
    Is your technology getting in the way of getting results?
  • Virtuous Implications
    Improve your revenue, time management, and lifestyle.
  • Virtuosity
    Redefine what it means to "show up and add value”.

Expect many insights and a lively discussion, as we explore how going virtual can help us build business and deliver more value. This will be an eye-opening breakfast meeting not to be missed and a great networking opportunity with your fellow consultants in the greater Orange County area.
