Webinar: Functioning as a Professional Consultant

Presenter: Christine Silver
Date Recorded: 12 December 2012


The necessary skills that create success for a consultant go beyond technical expertise.  A professional consultant must be able to communicate well and build working relationships.  Think of it this way — if a consultant  doesn't listen, can't communicate effectively, and doesn't work well with others, why would a client trust that person?

This webinar covers 10 qualities of a professional consultant, and assess the areas you want to work on.  One of the most critical qualities is your ability to communicate verbally and in writing, and you'll learn tips and tools to do this well. Many people call communication the "soft" skill, but sometimes communicating — especially under difficult circumstances — is one of the hardest things we do.  View this webinar and gain some simple practices to round out your professional consultancy.
