Topic:           Wish you could live the glamorous consulting life?

Via Web:  NOTE: We recommend calling the phone line for the meeting rather than using the audio of your PC

Consulting is a great career choice, from the increased pay, (sometimes less), to the flexible hours, (working nights and weekends), you will work with a wide range of customers, (if you can find them), that will lead you to wonder why you didn’t start earlier? (and walk away from a cushy job). Juan says that he would not trade his consulting career for any other choice; he loves the rewards and the freedom it provides him, but he has learned the hard way. In this session you will learn sales, marketing and management strategies to get your practice off the ground, sand traps to avoid along the way and a honest, down to earth assessment of the consulting life. An essential session for those thinking about this choice and/or those who are just starting out.  

Note: Even when an IT person has a permanent position, they are usually on a separate career track from non-IT personnel. This session will provide tips for all IT personnel.
