Essentials for Successful Consulting
Great consultants need to excel in many areas: communicating, marketing themselves, coaching, facilitation, delivering results, and project management just to name a few. Whether you’re a Learning and Development manager supporting internal projects, an external consultant working with a variety of clients, or a contractor working on specific projects, we’re all consultants!
For our kick-off Special Interest Group (SIG) event, we will engage in a highly interactive discussion on the key elements of successful consulting. We will explore different perspectives and gain insights on key aspects of consulting including essential skills and capabilities needed in today’s business climate. Please come to help us pave the way for many great future Consulting Forum SIG events. Both internal and external Talent and L&D professionals and contractors will benefit from this discussion. Come prepared to engage your colleagues, share related insights, and learn more about consulting as a Talent and L&D professional
About the Consulting Forum:
We recognize the need to support like-minded TD professionals who consult with organizational leadership. Our professional community is comprised of experienced and newer internal and external consultants. We also welcome colleagues who are considering becoming an external consultant.
Our purpose is to promote insightful and friendly knowledge sharing on this broad and diverse topic of consulting in the area of Talent Development (and Learning and Development). Our only criteria for participating in this forum is your willingness to learn and share knowledge, and your collective help to maintain a friendly, non-competitive environment.Agenda:
