independent-tag-Dave PuttConsulting can offer you incredible experiences and career prospects. If you’re thinking about consulting, attend this Master Class led by Dave Putt, Vice President of Consultant and Client Services for MBO Partners, to learn what you need to consider as you make your decision. Dave will provide you practical tips to help shorten the learning curve, as well as a useful checklist of things you need to do before you hang your shingle.

You will also learn firsthand from a freelance consultant who went through the process of setting up their practice.

Here is what some attendees of the live event had to say:

  • “It’s a great starting point and comprehensive list to how to start your business (or enhance it) the right way.”
  • “Very painless, but full of content. It was particularly useful to hear from someone who had recently gone through this.”
  • “Quick transfer of knowledge that would require a significant time investment to discover on your own.”

If you’re just learning about consulting, or you’re not sure if consulting is the career path for you, you’ll want to listen to the recording of  this Master Class.
