Managing Your Resources

Workshop Focus
Learn from experts, stay current, exchange ideas, and share your expertise.

Sometimes, a consultant's worst enemy is what we all want: Success. Winning several major client engagements tends to present some tough challenges, such as how to balance time between delivering results to clients, marketing the business in order to win new ones, and administering the consultancy, while keeping enough personal time to be able to reenergize and enjoy the work. Just working longer is rarely a way out: Even the best of us only get 24 hours each day.

The answer lies in effectively managing time, finances, contacts, and other resources. This month's workshop will show you ways to become more effective and focused in your consulting practice, discussing important aspects such as:

  • Time management
  • Contact management
  • Resource management
