Consultancy

Get the business and deliver results

Wednesday 25th May 2016, 12-4pm (Lunch provided)

Birmingham Research Park

 

This event is for staff academics and researchers at the University of Birmingham  only. 

About the workshop:
The provision of consultancy can be a very effective way of using your specialist knowledge to gain financial reward and to deliver positive benefits to an external organisation. Our session will look at how to be an effective consultant and meet (and exceed) the expectations of your clients.

The session will cover

  • Assessing the benefits of a given service
  • Identifying and approaching potential partners
  • Evaluating customer needs
  • Planning a consulting pitch
  • Managing customer expectations

This seminar will be led by Andrew Corcoran who runs Blueberry Training and is also a Teaching Fellow in the Marketing and Strategy Group at Aston University. The afternoon will be very interactive and you will give you the opportunity to ‘have a go’ at some of the techniques that you learn. 

Andrew will be joined by Simon Freeman who manages the University of Birmingham’s consultancy service. Simon will explain the service he provides to help academics delivering consultancy projects.

How do I register?

Participation is free but places are limited.
