There is considerable guidance available on how to become an independent consultant but very little on what’s needed to be successful in a professional consulting organization. And these two experiences, while sharing some commonalities, are quite different. The consulting firm experience is often quite a surprise to the new consultant. The purpose of this webinar is to help those considering a career in consulting better prepare for the experience. It’s not what you think! The webinar discusses four critically important topics that can challenge the new consultant:

  • Getting Oriented: Knowing the Hot Buttons
  • Financial and Contract Management: The Great Unknown
  • Managing Projects: Scope, Schedule and Budget
  • Client Relationships: Ten Tips for Success

Any of the topics alone can be, and often are, the subject of an entire book or training seminar. The webinar will provide an overview of the essential elements of each topic and discuss ways that new consultants can succeed but also potentially fail in meeting the expectations of the firm that they have joined. The advice presented is based on Larry Cahill’s 40-years of consulting experience; both the good and the bad. Mr. Cahill is the author of “Can I Borrow Your Watch? A Beginner’s Guide to Succeeding in a Successful Consulting Organization”, published by the ACEC in 2017. A fuller treatment of the webinar’s topics, as well as a comprehensive listing of additional learning resources, can be found in that text.
