10.1 How to Develop Your Professional Brand as a Consultant
All products and services are branded, i.e. given a distinctive name and image to identify them to potential customers. As consultants we need to develop a professional brand that enables potential clients to rapidly identify who we are, how we can help them and demonstrate that we are experts in our field.
10.2 Professional Networking for Consultants
Professional networking is a key activity of all consultants. It helps us land a job, tackle client engagements (our professional contacts may have access to useful knowledge or skills) and of course find new clients. With the right approach professional networking is fun and helps us develop long term professional relationships and friendships. Poorly done professional networking is frustrating and wastes a great deal of time.
