Say goodbye to bosses and firm politics.

By creating your own consulting practice you can take control of your career, increase your income, expand your flexibility, and get more satisfaction from work.

This session, informed by conversations with over top tier 1,000 independent professionals, will provide you the basics on how to start your own firm.

Increasing numbers of professionals are deciding to leave full-time employment to set up their own consulting practice – and even more professionals are considering such a move, but aren’t sure how to make the leap.

This program answers the most common questions professionals have and provides an overview of all the practical factors involved in starting your own practice:
– Strategy: How to select what clients you’ll serve and what problems you’ll solve
– Business development: How to find clients
– Fees: What to charge for your services
– Legal: How to create your entity and prepare consulting contracts
– Team: How to build a virtual team to support you
– Technology: How to set up your practice with the right technology tools
