Consulting 101, the first webinar of Consulting Series, is a panel discussion. It is led by three experienced consultants who have been where you are and will take you on a 1-hour journey from “not knowing where to start” to taking on your first client more confidently. You will take away a proven framework for organizing and/or auditing your consulting role and practice.
