Ask the Expert: The Consultant as Author: Write a book to benefit your clients — and you!
Admit it: you’ve thought about writing a book hundreds of times, and the idea is stalled in your head or as an unfinished draft. You’re not alone.
We’re experts in our field and clients hire us for our expertise. We know the world needs our ideas. And most of don’t take the critical step that gets us to start writing.
Join us August 4 for our NorCal virtual breakfast and featured Ask the Expert speaker and author, David Kelly, presenting The Consultant as Author: Write a book to benefit your clients — and you!
David will take us on a journey into the author’s mindset: how do you prep yourself to write so that you overcome what’s holding you back and get the book written?
He’ll also cover —
- Purpose: what's in it for you? Why should you write the book?
- Value: what's in it for the reader?
- Viewpoint: do you have something to say, or a new way of thinking about your topic?)
- Voice: how do you want to come across?
David will remind us of tried-and-true book writing mechanics — decisions and actions to take, such as whether to write an outline, how to get published, and getting help without breaking the bank.
The Zoom link will be sent to registrants the day before the event.
