New Ebook: Professional Practice for Consultants

New Ebook - Professional Practice for Consultants

Whether you work for yourself or someone else, you need to be able to present what you have to offer in a way which attracts employers.
As a consultant, you need to stand out from others in your field. Whilst to some degree your demand will be related to your relevant experience, years in the industry, and perhaps notoriety through media recognition, publications, word-of-mouth and so forth - the way that you sell yourself is also important.

It is important to consider:
- What services am I going to offer?
- How am I going to present my services?
- What am I going to charge?
