Are you considering becoming a consultant?
Perhaps you are already consulting, but want to learn more about how to work more effectively, get the best price for your skills or simplify admin work?
Consultants use expertise gained from University research in order to provide services to external organisations. Any University researcher can undertake consultancy work, but it can be challenging to manage and administrate alongside University teaching and research commitments.
Cambridge Enterprise is delighted to be offering this free workshop in how to effectively manage consultancy projects, sharing expertise on best practice, tips on making life easier and trouble-shooting for some of the key issues faced by consultants.
This is an ideal opportunity to develop your skills, providing a refresher for academics already acting as consultants or an introduction for those considering consultancy in the near future.
Members of the Cambridge Enterprise Consultancy Services team will also cover how they can help to provide support throughout the process and explain the benefits of using their services.
The workshop will include:
Benefits and impact of undertaking consultancy work
Experience sharing and a Q&A panel with academics experienced in consultancy
Issues surrounding confidentiality, intellectual property and liability
How Cambridge Enterprise can help you undertake consultancy more effectively
This workshop is designed for all levels of experience, whether you are already acting as a consultant or are considering doing so.
We welcome applications from anyone who is currently employed by the University.
