POSTPONED to 2018: August General Meeting

Build Your Business Through Referrals: Your #1 Secret to a One-Call Meeting

We regret to say that our August 17 General Meeting is cancelled. Our membership is enjoying a lot of August vacations this year! That’s great—we’ll all be raring to go in September for our presentation and interactive exercises designed to get you more visibility on LinkedIn. This will be an opportunity for you to work ON your business and put more of Best Practice #2 in place to BUILD your consulting practice. Register here for the September 21 General Meeting

The powerful speaker we had scheduled for August, Joanne Black, will be rescheduled for 2018 to deliver her talk and interactive exercises to help you boost your sales and fire up your consulting business using referrals. Referral selling is a key component of Best Practice #1 in the Women In Consulting Best Practices identified year after year in our annual survey, listed below: 

  1. Network to build your business and resources
  2. See and be seen
  3. Ask for what you’re worth
  4. Charge value-based project fees vs. hourly rates
  5. Use subcontractors
  6. Mark up subcontractors
  7. Always collect a percentage of the project fee upfront
  8. Renegotiate fees when the scope changes

See you on September 21!
