The L&D profession is a wonderful profession to belong to. As a career it offers constant variety, the satisfaction of seeing the results of your work, recognition in many different forms – and endless opportunities for learning. Of course, the profession is not without its challenges, frustrations and occasional upsets, but overall most consultants love their work!
Our workshop will outline key components of becoming a successful consultant. It will include suggestions of how to set up your consultant business and what to expect when you first enter the consultant arena. We will also explore ideas and insider information if you are currently a consultant. Please join us for an interactive and fun meeting!
