I was lucky enough to have a mentor when I made the move to consulting. Without that support, I probably wouldn’t have had the courage to make the move, I would have made many, many costly beginners mistakes, and would definitely have taken much longer to become an effective consultant.
Now it’s my turn to pass on what I’ve learned.
My programs focus on three key components:
- Consulting skills and knowledge [what I like to call consulting ‘trade craft’]
- Business establishment and development
All three are critical to success.
There are so many things to learn about the ‘how to’ of consulting [quoting, proposal writing, stakeholder engagement, analysis, report writing client management, project management to name just a few].
And then there’s all the learning associated with running a small business [including setting up the business, marketing, managing finances, compliance and cash flow and much more].
But what also holds people back is a lack of confidence. Despite having a solid career behind them, almost everyone who makes the move [or thinks about it] doubts themselves. “Do I have what it takes?” “Will I win enough business to stay afloat”? “I’m anxious about having to market myself?” “What if no-one gives me work?” “How will I be able to compete in the marketplace”?
My programs distil all of my knowledge and practice wisdom from over two decades of public sector consulting. And because mindset is so critical to your success, they also support you to work through any limiting beliefs that might be holding you back.
And when you enrol in any of my programs you get lifetime access to the training modules and materials.
