Webinar: Building the Consultant Practice of Tomorrow Using Today’s Online Tools
Presenter: Michael Bryant
Date Recorded: 5 April 2018
The past few years have seen an explosion of online tools to help businesses automate. These tools have transformed the way companies operate. Today’s “Born in the Cloud” companies have little resemblance to organizations that were running 10 years ago. Larger established companies are struggling to adapt to the rapidly changing world.
This presentation will focus on three of these cloud technologies. The focus of the discussion will show how small consulting companies can utilize these three tools to increase their marketing reach, decrease their cost of doing business, and increase profitability.
The three areas of discussion are: e-mail distribution systems, video meeting services, and shared data workspaces. Real world examples will be used with a simple consulting practice model to show how companies can use these technologies to transform their operations.
No one is going to be able to use all of the ideas presented in the webinar, but we hope everyone will find something new they can try in their own practice. Join us for this presentation and learn how other companies are using today’s business technology.
